Being in School While Deployed Has Been Really Rewarding

First Lieutenant Ben Underwood, current MBA student,  talks about time management in our Online Student Commons about taking classes while deployed:

“Time management is key for me. I generally know what my assignments are for the week, but I need to do the mental exercise of writing down my entire weekly workload on a checklist and then further breaking it down by days that I hope to finish each project. I don’t always stick to my own advice, but at least I know the score. I can check off small wins and keep myself motivated this way. Also back things up in case of power failure! School while deployed has been really rewarding for me so far and it helps pass the time. I would recommend it to anyone with access to a computer and a relatively stable schedule.”
