The Best App For College Students Who Just Can't Use Agendas

This app is a guaranteed life saver when it comes to all things college.

Every single college student should have this app and I am telling you because it is a total lifesaver. It's called the iStudiez Pro App and it basically is an agenda and grade saver, all in one.

As college students, we are constantly bombarded with a million things to do and not enough time to do them. When you're sitting in class thinking "I totally forgot about that...," this app will never let you forget, as it literally reminds you when class even is, when a test is, and what is due.

For me, personally, I utilized this app on a daily basis as it was so easy since it is right in my phone and kept me on track throughout the week of what assignments needed finishing right away, compared to the other ones that I could start at a later date over the weekend.

Breaking it down, you input your schedule for over the semester; that way it knows when your classes are. And I'm sure there are the college students who have their highlighters and post-its all over their agenda with color coordinated assignments. Then there are the rest of us, like me, who write it in their agenda, but don't keep a too watchful eye on it and half the time is just following along with the syllabus.

iStudiez Pro App helps in this case because it lets you mark something as "high priority," "normal," and "low priority." So if you had a major project you could mark it as high, whereas maybe there were a couple of discussion questions which you can mark as low. This helps in the organization.

On top of it, once you receive a grade back, you can put it in where you marked the assignment as completed and it helps keep track of all of your grades for the semester so when it comes down to knowing your final grade, you at least have an idea of what you'll be receiving. You can put it all your exam dates with the location/time in as well, which, during midterms and finals, was a complete lifesaver.

This is an app to be taken advantage of since it is so helpful. You're also able to put in calendar dates, like if you don't have school for a week for spring break or if you don't have school for the month of January, so it helps to know when you're on vacation or if your teacher canceled class one day for some reason.

Another awesome feature this app has is that it lets you put in all the courses, professors, and contact information that you may need for them and you can e-mail right off the app to them. This comes in handy when TAs, who may not have been included on the syllabus, give their information.

If you want to better your organization and have something that you can put everything school-related to in, I definitely recommend using the iStudiez Pro App. This was my first semester at Stony Brook and I basically had a time frame of when everything was due just by looking at the calendar, which is incredibly helpful.

If you're bad at staying on top of your life just like I am, download it!

50 Things to Do When You're Bored and Completely Alone


For people like me, spring break is a time where you come home and have absolutely nothing to do. You're parents work all day and you're either sibling-less or your siblings have already moved out. Most of your friends are on the semester system, so your breaks don't line up. You're bored and completely alone.

Although while being alone sounds boring, sometimes it's nice to just hang out with yourself. There is a plethora of unique and creative things you can do. Netflix marathon? That's overdone. Doing something productive or worthwhile? You do enough of that in school anyway. Whatever the reason is for you being alone, I have assembled a list of unique things to do to cure your boredom.

High School Seniors Should Be Excited For College, Not Scared

Even though it seems stressful and it is a big new place, it will be some of the best memories you will have for life.


Going into the summer after my high school graduation, all I could think about was college, and how I was going to prepare to go to a new school and move away from home. Just know, it is not as stressful as you prepare yourself for it to be. You don't need to worry about not having any friends or not knowing how to get to all the different buildings because you have to remember everyone else on campus has been in the exact same position you are in, and there are tons of people on campus to help you.

One of the things I was most worried about was classes and how to know which classes to take. My advice is to go to counseling and plan out your classes before you register. Planning out classes will drastically help you stay on track and the counselors will help you make a balanced schedule that you can actually handle.

Another piece of advice would be to not bring as much stuff for your dorm as you think you will need. By all means, bring the essential things that you will need, but remember a dorm room is very small and you share it with another person. You won't have a ton of space for extra stuff and you want to have space to move around and actually live in your dorm.

Finally, if you are concerned about meeting people and making friends, just try and be as outgoing and open as possible. Everyone else in the dorms is just as nervous as you are too meet people, it really helps to try to branch out. Joining clubs or greek life also helps you meet people around campus with common interests as you.

College is not something to be scared of. Even though it seems stressful and it is a big new place, it will be some of the best memories you will have for life.
