Are you struggling with managing your time?

With classes, homework, extracurricular activities, clubs, sports, jobs, and much more, it can be hard to have time for everything. Without good time management skills, managing a full schedule tends to be difficult for most individuals. As students, there are many things we can do to help improve our time management skills or keep them steady. Going to class, keeping a planner, making to-do lists, taking breaks, and thinking positively are all very helpful tips that can help students with managing their time. If you find yourself in search of more help with time management, do not hesitate to call or visit the Academic Resource Center (ARC) on the third floor of Vogel Library!

ARC phone number: 319-352-8615

ARC hours: Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
