» Suggestions for Time Budgeting

There are 168 hours in a week, but about 100 are usually taken up with “non-optional” activities such as sleeping, eating, personal care, travel, religious activities, home chores, and modest amounts of leisure and recreation.

Plan to spend a maximum of 65 hours a week on a combination of the following activities.  If these total more than 65 hours, something needs to be modified.

  1. Classes and laboratories
  2. Study
  3. Part-time employment
  4. Student activity commitments
