15 Apps That EVERY College Student Needs On Their iPhone
The Unquiet Librarian//Wordpress

As a college sophomore, I have downloaded TONS of different apps onto my phone, so many that I've run out of storage space more than once.

Some apps work, some apps are a total failure. Here is my list of apps that every college student needs to have on their phone if they wanna be the best student they can be!

1. Google Drive.

Google Drive is great. You can edit, share, create and view so many different documents. Drive will store and save all your documents from Docs, Sheets, and Slides!

2. OneNote.

OneNote is a great app if you're on the go and taking notes. You can type, draw or even import notes from other sources. If I had to summarize in three words, they would be capture, organize and share!

3. Google Docs.

You're able to add content simultaneously with other people who are shared to your document! It's great for taking notes in class, creating study guides and creating projects for classes! It was a life saver during freshman year!

4. PowerPoint.

The Powerpoint app has SAVED MY LIFE. For one, you can create power points so easily, and two, you can download professors, and friends power point slides to have them wherever you go. You can also edit power points simultaneously with your friends to collab on a project!

5. Microsoft Word.

I recommend Microsoft Word to everyone. Have a meeting with a professor but forgot your laptop? Have no fear! Your Microsoft word app is here! I've used my Word app to consult and get advice on current assignments, It's easy to use, and of course, portable! I'm not worried about setting up meetings with professors about assignments when I can just Open my app and show them after class!

6. Outlook.

Outlook is great for emailing. Most university emails go through Outlook, which makes it a must to have!

7. Google Slides.

So many editing opportunities when using google slides. Slides is the perfect app to create slide shows on the go, or at home, even school! I'm pretty sure I used Google Slides atleast four times a month.

8. Quizlet.

There is nothing more frustrating than forgetting flashcards or study material. Quizlet makes studying on the go a breeze! I love my Quizlet app, especially during Finals week when I want to study where I go.

9. Netflix.

Nothing is better than having a few hours of free time. No studying, no classes, no responsibilities. Netflix is always there to have your back whether you're in bed, or out laying on the Quad!

10. Dictionary.com.

I'm not encouraging you to use your phone in class, BUT, 10/10 times I've had to use the dictionary.com app in class. It's so handy to have, even when you just want to know synonyms or antonyms of a word, no need to carry around a thesaurus!

11. Pandora or Spotify.

Spotify and Pandora are my go to for study stations. I like Pandora's mixture of music, But I love Spotify's student discount! Both are great for on the go listening, and to help you keep your cool while you study!

12. GroupMe.

Groupme is great, You can use it for all of your classes, friend groups, business colleagues, and university clubs or organizations! You can mute the chat so you don't receive notifications, or you can keep them on. You're able to send pictures, create events, make polls and make calls! Perfect for every college student!

13. Snapchat.

Snapchat is the perfect app for complaining to friends about your classes. It's also perfect for showing people how much of a love/hate relationship college is.

14. Cliff Notes.

Great app for when you forget to read your assigned chapters the night before. Cliff Notes is perfect for on the go, before class reading, or even to find more information about the book or characters themselves!

15. EasyBib.

What's the most difficult stage of writing an essay? Citations. Creating citations ( not to mention that you have you know MLA or APA style formats). I know that I am one of these students, but if you're also one of the students that hate citing, EasyBib is your best friend.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
