Several years ago, I read an article in the New York Times that placed Apple Inc. on the same level as a religion.  With its fanatic fans camping outside for days to purchase the newly released device and the devotion they show with Apple products, it’s not too surprising. But what is it about Apple that makes people “hypnotized” to it?
 
Just last month, I had the opportunity to visit Apple Inc. (the America Operations Center) in Austin with my Ed.D. K-12 cohort, and our speaker, Jon Landis, the Development Executive for educational mobility deployment in higher education and K-12 schools, shed some light on Apple’s secret formula.

Back-to-Campus: Tips College Students NEED to Know

Tip #1: Balancing it All

Not only are you trying to balance classes, study time, group work, and tests, but there is the social aspect of college life to fit in as well. On- and off-campus activities, including everything from hanging out with friends to intermural sports, make up a big part of the college experience. While managing your time can be tricky, it doesn’t need to be overwhelming. Try using an agenda or planner. There are plenty of apps out there, or you can even utilize the calendar on your smart phone. (There is also nothing wrong with pen and paper planner.) Utilizing such tools can help you manage your time and keep it all straight.

Tip #2: Where and How Long to Study

You know you best. Whether you study better in your dorm room with your headphones and your favorite music or in a quite space in the library, find something that works for you. Once you find your sweet spot, break up your studying into time blocks. Try studying for 30-50 minutes and then allowing yourself a quick break in between those studying times. This approach can help you stay energized and focused.
