Assignment Title: Time Management Assignment
Date Assigned: September 26th
Date Due: October 10th Growing up everyone always said to get prepared now because college is going to be a big adjustment. Understandably you’re going to be living on your own without anyone to tell you what to do, in new surroundings with new people and just overall having to be completely independent. Personally I am a pretty independent person so I didn’t think this change was going to be difficult in any way but as a shock to me, it was. In high school, the workload was incomparably less than the workload in college. In high school I would receive a small amount of homework in each class most nights but in college the amount of work given is much greater but I’m given more time to complete it.

On average these are larger than what I am used to but it is much easier to get involved in the class compared to the lecture halls. Another difference between high school and college that I’ve noticed is that you’re in this new environment with people you’ve never met before while in high school you’ve been growing up with the same people your whole life. Making new friends was never an issue for me because everyone was generally alike but coming to a large
