4 Excellent Homework Strategies For College Students

By the time you get to college you’ll have spent plenty of time doing homework, and may feel like you don’t need help figuring out how to do it. But many college students struggle with homework when they first start college for a few reasons. First, you’ll have a lot more of it than in high school, and it will probably be much harder. Second, you won’t have your parents there to remind you to do it. And third, there are many more distractions as a college student, especially if you’re living on campus or working to put yourself through school.

So you may find yourself needing some help to figure out how to handle your homework when you get to college. These 4 excellent strategies are sure to help you:

  1. Eliminate distractions
  2. The most simple and most effective strategy for working on assignments effectively and efficiently is to eliminate distractions. This may mean going to the library to work instead of working in your room, but often times it means eliminating electronic distractions. First, put your phone on silent, or even better turn it off or put it away in a drawer where you won’t be tempted to answer text messages or calls. Then, close out of your email or social media on your computer so you won’t be so tempted to keep checking it.

  3. Leave yourself plenty of time
  4. When you leave your work till the last minute you’ll almost certainly find yourself rushing to get through it. This will mean you’ll probably end up with a poorer grade on it, as you’ll make mistakes, but you’ll also not learn the material as well, which will hurt you on tests. So it’s a good idea to do an assignment as soon as it is assigned and not leave it till the night before it’s due.

  5. Plan out your work for the week
  6. This is a simple time management strategy that will allow you to plan when you are going to work on what. This will ensure that you’ll get everything done and be able to balance the demands of all your courses.

  7. Don’t be afraid to ask for help
  8. Finding help on assignments can be more intimidating in college, because professors are usually less accessible. If you find yourself needing help, try going to your teacher’s office hours, reaching out to a TA, or going to the college tutoring center.

Devise Out A Plan
