April 08 2020

Here are 5 helpful time management tips brought to you by CFA Create Success Interns Abby Davis, Mason Henrie, Matthew Rudolph, and Lia Wong. 

Hello, College of Fine Arts Students!  

As we all make the transition to online classes, here are some helpful tips to help manage your time. 

Create a schedule or agenda.

Whether or not you have used a planner in the past, now is a great time to REALLY use it! This can be useful in seeing you​r important dates and deadlines in an orderly fashion. 

Work on one project at a time. 

If looking at your deadlines all at once is too overwhelming, make a notecard list!  

  • Write each assignment with its deadline on its own notecard, order the notecards by date, and start knocking out each assignment one at a time.  

Start early. 

If you happen to find that you have been sitting on the couch watching Tik Toks or doing whatever else keeps you occupied for hours at home, it sounds like it’s a good time to get a jump on some homework!

Getting a head start on assignments when you have some free time will save you lots of stress in the long run. Trust me!  


This one is pretty self-explanatory, but it’s one tip that should not be forgotten. A fresh mind always helps with creativity! 

Remember: This is a time where we can use our innovative minds to find the things that work best for us. Stay positive and never stop creating!
