Student’s in college struggle with managing their time because of disorganization which many times results in poor academics, failing relationships, and stunted spiritual life.


  • 45 People surveyed
  • Multiple majors
  • 59% Male
  • 40% Female

Of the 45 candidates, 6 people were under a 2.5 GPA (bottom 10%) and 2 of those were under a 2.0 GPA.

47% of the candidate’s say they set aside time to study every day

65% of candidates said when they do study they study in the evening compared to morning or afternoon.

Only 1% of the candidates go to sleep before 10 PM and over 64% of the candidates said they go to sleep after 12AM.

Each of the members of the bottom 10% in GPA received on average between 4-6 hours a sleep per night.

40% of the candidates said they do not use a planner of any kind.

80% of candidates said they prefer hand written notes compared to 20% preferring typed notes.


Our proposed solution is to help develop a survey to verify the problem and from here develop a presentation with organizational tools and habits to help 4 specific students in need to manage their time well through organization so that their academics, their social life, and spiritual life do not suffer but instead find growth.
