Get Organized

One way to make sure that you are successful in college is to get organized. Use the sites below to find a number of tools to help you stay on top of your assignments, and organize and track group projects.

Insights for Getting Organized

  • If you want to get organized without adding another application to your computer, consider using the calendar feature of a Web search engine or application you already use, such as Google Calendar or Microsoft Outlook.
  • Many college courses use some sort of online tool to keep students up to date on assignments and grades, and even allow them to turn in papers or participate in discussions online. If your professor isn't using an application like this, you may consider suggesting that you start a course blog so that students can stay updated.
