Time Management Strategies For College Freshman by Jessica Nesmith The first year of college can be an exciting time. It can also be very STRESSFUL because it marks a  turning point in a young adult's life. Not only may this be your first time leaving home, but you  will be exposed to choices and challenges never faced before. New friends, a new place to live, and  a variety of activities are on the agenda, and the reality of being able to incorporate all of these  into your life becomes of the utmost importance. Namely, how to manage your time EFFECTIVELY  so that you can succeed in your studies, but not let your social life as well as your personal needs  fall to the wayside.
