Week 2: Time Management

The Biggest Learner kicks off – but first, it's time to get organized.

One contestant who has a busy life to schedule is Meredith Mendoza. Get to know Meredith this week and find out she juggles school and eight children.

Team Swag and the A-Team got an insightful workshop on time management from Desiree Polk-Bland of Advising Services. She told them to prioritize what's really important and schedule the big things first.

These tips aren't just for Biggest Learner contestants. Advising Services offers the Blueprint student success workshops several times a quarter, and the next Time Management session is Wednesday, Oct. 5. View the Blueprint Workshop schedule.
