Balance studies, activities and sleep

7. Balance studies, activities and sleep

Your senior peers may have already told you that HKU has an extraordinarily large variety of extra-curricular activities, and that it is important for you to participate in some of them. Yes, joining some of these activities will not only help you develop friendship, but also help you sharpen your soft-skills (event organization, social awareness etc.) After all, university life is not just about studying.

However, it is also very important for you to strike a balance between studies and other activities (such as hall activities). Learn time management / self-management skills from CEDARS if necessary. While some students managed both studies and activities well, nevertheless, there were also students who failed their academic studies because of over-commitment in student activities. You don’t want to be one of them!
