MCCC Stuck at Home Study Tips and Resources


West Windsor, N.J. - The spring semester at Mercer County Community College is usually an exciting time. Warm weather and blooming foliage serve as a positive background as the college races towards graduation and the summer.

Though the COVID-19 pandemic and “stay at home” orders have put a damper on accessing on-campus student services, MCCC’s Success Coaching staff organized a list of tips and strategies to keep you on top of your game.

Victoria Bowman (Liberal Arts): Manage Your Time & Stay Organized

During this unusual time of self-isolation, quarantine, and more relaxed due dates, it's all too easy to procrastinate. You may think that since you don't have to be in a specific place at a specific time, things can be put off until the last minute.

Avoid this at all costs!

It will catch up to you. Stay organized just as if you were going to class: use your folders and notebooks; use a hard-copy planner to keep track of due dates (it really does work!); and, use a timer so you don't get overwhelmed.

Schedule breaks often. If you're used to being in a face-to-face class and being actively engaged on and off campus with your family, friends, and work, staying organized and managing your time is essential to maintaining good grades and a healthy mindset.
