Semesters fly by in college. Keeping these dates in mind along with your assignment deadlines will help relieve stress and boost success. Your professor should have given you a handy dandy syllabus at the beginning of the course. The syllabus packet should have all of your required readings, papers, presentations, and assignments there. 

Sitting down with your paper planner, online calendar, or excel spreadsheet and inputting your assignments will let you know what is coming up. There will be times where you have two tests, a paper, and a presentation all due in one week. Knowing this ahead of time will help you plan your time so you are not stressed to do everything last minute. 

For further help with time management, interpreting your syllabus, or class organization, call the Academic Learning Center at 319-273-6023 and a tutor can help you from the College Reading and Learning Center.
