How can time for school fit into an already busy day-to-day life?

  • Spend time on campus doing homework when possible. Once you get home, there are too many distractions and interruptions.
  • Establish a routine that works for you. Always try and get ahead on homework and especially projects. 
  • Online courses allow you to be in control of YOUR time which is often limited. It's a great way to fit classes into a busy schedule.
  • Remember you chose Purdue University for the education, not the social life.
  • Use email.  Your time and the professor's time are precious.  Emails can be sent and answered at each person's convenience.  Plus, it's in writing.  If something needs to be verified-keep those emails, including the ones to advisors, etc.
  • Grades are important but don't let them take the fun out of learning.
  • Participate in class; you will get so much more out of your education.
