This is not to say that having fun in college is impossible, because that is definitely not true. This is to encourage all students to find a healthy balance between academics and fun. Take breaks in between studying to do something revitalizing. As the old saying goes, “study long, study wrong.” So make sure to do what energizes you in between studying! Carving out time to study during the school week leaves majority of the weekend for fun and exciting activities. All in all, go to office hours, ask for help and complete assignments as you go. Before you know it, you will have successfully completed the semester and it will be time for winter break!
