Matthew Kohrs

StageBalancing work and school, NE student Matthew Kohrs finds a way to manage his time so that the pressure of college does not overwhelm him.

“Pre-planning has a lot to do with work and school, so I look at my day 24 hours a day,” Kohrs said.

He said sleep becomes an issue, but the rest he gets during days off comes in handy.

“While working on campus, I get time when I am able to get a lot of homework done.  Plus, I get to work with students and get to know them,” he said.

Not only has Kohrs made time to finish his homework and to arrive at work in time, he finds a bright spot in it all.

“Anything is possible. I have moved 12 times this year,” he said. When asked why Kohrs said simply, “life.”

“I would say school is really important,” he said. “This is the first time in my life that I can pursue further with my education and happiness.”
