My Student Survival Guide
In the beginning of my journey through my distance learning, at UOP I have learned
Many skills that I know will follow me throughout the rest of my life and career.
When managing my time wisely, I have put together timelines and lists’ to
Prepare myself on what I can accomplish each day. I set out a plan to follow by so I
Know when I can do things. Here is an example of my day and how I manage my time.

Begin to do any discussions that I see on there for that week. I get back to work at 1pm
And work till 5pm, I run errands and then about 7pm I fix dinner, I get my son in the bath
at about 8:30 and in the bed by 9pm, I log back into to ecampus and complete any DQs or
assignments I have for that day. I have mastered this schedule and feel as if it works for
me. It helps with my time management; I know I can complete everything this way.

and know that I am doing a really good job without being told so. By knowing and
figuring out my learning intelligence I can now understand that there are many types of
intelligences out there that I can work on learning and using.

that my own life will get in the way of school such as if something comes up and I do not
have time to do an assignment I have found ways around such obstacles now. UOP has
shown me so many skills that I can use forever in just the last 9 weeks. My goals now
have changed, for example; I would like to...
