THE AVERAGE full-time college student spends only 2.76 hours per day on all education-related activities, according to a Heritage study. That includes class time (1.18 hrs./day) as well as study time (1.53 hrs./day). Over a week, that equals 19.3 hours. But students spend 31 hours per week on socializing and recreation.
Many students work harder than this, of course, but I have certainly seen my share of students who aren’t spending much time studying.
