in order to provide more options for the future.

A college degree has value and worth in the world. With a degree, you will have more career
opportunities as well as commanding better pay.

The Benefits of College
Most people inherently understand the benefits to going to college. That being said, many people do
not fully realize the importance of managing time and effort while in college, by working at it every
single day.

                                            When you are in college, you are given a lot of freedom
                                            compared to other parts of life. Unlike high school or a career
                                            that has been worked on, things like attendance and
                                            homework and projects are completely up to you.

                                            College is a test of the initiative and responsibility of the
                                            person. Except for your lost money you pay for tuition, there is
                                            no immediate punishment for skipping class or not doing the

Obviously, there can be consequences if your actions get you kicked out of school, but it does not
measure up to the legal punishments for skipping class in high school, nor does it have the immediate
effect that being fired does.

Your time is yours to apply as you wish, which makes the entire college experience one that is all about
testing responsibility and dedication. Effective students need to work at school every day in order to find

Making the Most of it
Even during the lulls in the busy work in school, it is
important for students to stay busy. Time given in
college, whether active or passive, is given with

Therefore, students should always strive to complete
homework even if it does not count toward a grade.
Homework is essential for reinforcing concepts taught
in class and for keeping people caught up.

Even if there is down time, people are strongly
encouraged to use it to read course material and to
catch up on notes. Many people make the mistake of assuming that free time is a “reprieve” where they
are off the hook for scholastic matters, when it often is gifted as time to catch up.

Procrastination is a big issue as it relates to productivity. For example, many projects in school are issued
weeks in advance, in order to allow for completion without an undue amount of stress.

The idea is for people to steadily put in effort over the course of time in order to complete the assigned
project within its time limits. However, many people see the opportunity as one to take time off with,
rather than applying themselves every day.

These people are consequently the ones who will work frantically on hopeless deadlines days before
something big is due. The contrast of examples and preparation shows why it is so important to always
remain productive.

Whether they are in an accounting program or a healthcare management program, people who
dedicate themselves to remaining busy will enjoy better scholastic careers. The success found here will
also translate to real world careers quite effectively.
