Have you ever noticed students walking around and waiting for the next class in your university? Practically, they are just burning daylight because of the spaces of time in their schedules. The primary group that faces such a problem are commuters. It is not a secret that this issue is pretty widespread and it exists in my college as well. Mostly, my fellow students spend time watching favorite episodes of The Office or any other series. Even though this activity brings pleasure, after a while it turns to be wearisome and annoying. Judging from my bitter experience, I would say that understanding of the fact that you waste priceless time makes you suffer even more.
Thankfully, I lived not really far from the campus, so I rarely had a chance to feel all the struggling of those who hang about during the breaks in the timetable. I could make the maximum use of lunch hour; I went to my apartment, ate and took some time to sleep. Sometimes, I stayed at the university and did a research. Recently, I have started to think about how to schedule classes better and to increase the effectiveness of students.
Pay a Visit to the Library
At first, you may think it is extremely boring to stay in the library. Nevertheless, being in such a quiet place you can easily concentrate and reduce your stress level. It may give you the inspiration to look through your course paper or keep preparing for an exam. These tasks are time-consuming, so do not postpone completing them.
Save Your Pocket
Huge sums of students’ budgets go for buying books. There is a possibility to cut down on the expenses. In the library, there are all needed textbooks. Therefore, you can read them staying in or make a copy or a PDF scan.
Fuel for Your Body
I think, it is very typical for students to have a poor diet. Being very busy, they usually forget or have no time to have breakfast or lunch. However, as we grow older, we start to understand that health is the thing that matters. That is why do not forget to take some snack with you or have a full meal.
Workout in the Gym
Your body needs to be not only well fed, but also fit. I do not mean you need to do sport between the lectures. For example, you can take a basketball hoop and remember the days of high school.
Polish Your Resume
You can take some time improving your resume. Before submitting, make sure you have it well-structured and coherent. In the campus, it is easy to find somebody who can help you with your documents. This person may notice some mistakes that you’ve missed.
Make the most of Office Hours
Are there any classes you fall behind? Is there any reason it is happening to you? Obviously, it means you should catch up with it. There is no need to wait until the last night before the exam and cram everything then. Think of it in advance and attend office hours.
Take a Breath of Fresh Air
Find the best location for your activities outside. Enjoy the nature and its beauty during different seasons of the year, especially in spring and autumn. It will be beneficial for both your health and mood.
