Although this question may seem simple, many students who are new to college or have been out of school may wonder what a college students daily life may be like.

On a day to day basis, students will normally attend their required courses while adding studies and meals in between classes. Depending on your course load, a student may take classes back to back or have breaks consisting of an hour or two in between classes.

A typical student normally takes anywhere between 12 to 15 credit hours of college courses. These courses may consist of general education classes in addition to classes that may fulfill his or her area of studies requirements.

With this being said, a college student may take an average of 1 to 4 classes spread throughout the day. Typically, classes can start as early as 7:45 am all the way through 10 at night. Class lecture times can be anywhere from 50 to 90 minutes.
