It seems that the first week back after reading week is full of students saying, “I should have done way more work than I did,” and “I didn’t open a book the whole week!” With reading week coming up, it is important to plan realistic goals for the week so that you can say, “I accomplished everything I wanted to over the break.” Trying to accomplish too much over the break means you won’t have a break at all, but not touching any school work could make the next 6 weeks more difficult. Here are some tips for finding your perfect balance! The Make the Most of Reading Week: Scheduling Drop-In on February 14th is a great place to go to if you are interested in planning for reading week.

Effective time management is one of the top three predictors of academic success.
