There are many types of students here at Cerritos College, and most of them don’t spend their free time wisely because there are so many other things that occupy their free time.

There are many ways to spend your free time wisely, such as going to the movies, and going online.

The problem students face nowadays is not having enough free time since they are almost always in class or busy with school work.

When students have some free time, it should be mostly consumed with studying for class or doing homework.

There may not even be time to think about what to do when there is free time because it is consumed with worrying about their next assignment.

This seems like a vicious cycle that never ends and will keep going and going until the students drop from exhaustion.

When it comes to the students with one or two classes, they have no problem because they only have to go to school once or twice a week. That gives them plenty of free time.

They don’t have to worry about finishing homework or studying because they have plenty of time to do it.

What students with four or more classes have to do is get their act together. They have to plan accordingly.

If they manage their free time correctly, they don’t have to worry about forgetting to do something.

Students need to talk to their teachers about the amount of work they have to do. Maybe if more students did this, then the teachers could see how hard it is for us to fit everything in.

There are so many things that a student with a lot of classes can do to create free time, such as forming a homework club.

They also have the choice to start a study group so when they have to study for a test, they don’t freak-out or worry because there’s no time to study.

Student’s also have the choice to spend a minimal break within the non-stop studying to relax and unwind so they can feel like they do have some time to spend free from school work.

Overall, there are some students that do spend their free time well and others that could spend it better.

The main reason students don’t spend their free time well is because they don’t think they can but as long as they think outside of the box and talk to their teachers, classmates, and friends, they can manage their free time well.
