Holiday Survival Tips for South University Online Programs Students

January 5, 2012

While the holiday season can be quite enjoyable, the chaos can also bring on a great deal of stress. We asked South University Online Programs students on our Facebook page how they balance their schoolwork with the festivities. This is what some of them had to say:

  • I work from Saturday through Thursday so I make sure I have my assignments done before the due date and still have extra time to shop and spend quality time with my family. – Chuck
  • Most of the time I have my assignments done before they are due and if I have one that needs to be done, I am up late the night before getting it completed. My wife and I got all our shopping done early this year and the stuff is all wrapped. –Jeremy
  • I am like the others; I get my assignments done early, at least a day before the deadline. That way I can just relax and enjoy the holidays. Most of the time when I am not doing my schoolwork I am spending time with my nephews, sister, and her fiancé. She works, and when she’s not her fiancé watches and the kids and she and I will go out and do the shopping, then we balance the holidays between families. – Lindsey
  • I make sure to keep my focus on the reason for the season. I take snapshots of all lectures and assignments like I do every other week and save to a Word document. Then, I work on assignments ahead of time so I can have plenty of time for family, friends and shopping. –Teresa

On behalf of everyone at South University Online Programs, we hope you enjoyed the holiday season.
