Often you will have an early start to classes throughout the day. Most of your classes would start at 8am meaning that the majority of your class days end at noon (this may vary during away game road trips).
Depending on the day of the week; you will have team practice at 1:30pm, 3pm, or 5pm in either the main gym or practice gym (this may vary on away trips).
Your meetings can consist of things like tutoring, injury treatment, mentorship, and even club or organization participation. To commit to things of this nature you will need great time management.
