College is a lot of responsibility coming at you really fast. So, how do you keep it all organized?

Today, staying on top of your assignments, commitments, and due dates can be as easy as installing the right app. If you’re having issues staying organized in college, these are some great apps to integrate into your daily life.

Accomplish

This simple app syncs your to-do list with your calendar. You add your tasks to your to-do list and assign due dates, and it automatically adds them into your schedule, so you remember to get it done. 

This app is easy to use and makes scheduling time to work on specific assignments a breeze. If you’re a big to-do list person, this is the app you want on your phone. 

Cozi

Working in groups? Trying to keep track of a lot of responsibilities at once? Cozi could be your answer. It helps you to coordinate and communicate schedules and activities. Not only can you keep track of your schedule, but you can manage to-do lists, create shopping lists, and plan ahead for events in the future. 

In fact, you can even input recipes that you want to plan for the week and keep track of the ingredients you’ll need to buy. For students that are still at home, live with roommates, or working around the schedules of their family members, Cozi can be a big help. 

Wunderlist

Just need a simple to-do reminder? Wunderlist might be exactly what you need. Put in your to-do’s, assign them dates, and you can see an at-a-glance look at your day every morning. It will allow you to focus on the most important things and work through your tasks on a day to day basis. 

The best part? You can create to-do lists for multiple projects. So, if you want one for every class, you can create a separate list, but it will all filter into your daily glimpse. 

Evernote

College students are always taking notes, but sometimes keeping track of them can seem impossible. Evernote is an app you can use via phone or laptop, making it easy for you to take classes. You can take notes, create to-do lists, and use keyword functions so you can search your notes for relevant information later. 

You can even use Evernote to capture snippets of websites or information while you’re studying, so you can refer back to it later. 

Pomodoro

This app can help you stay on track while working on assignments that take up a lot of time — like essays, for example. It splits your work time into 25-minute blocks, giving you a short break in between. 

It’s meant to help students prevent burn out while they’re working on big projects that take a lot of mental energy. It even allows you to mark areas where you start to lose focus so you can learn when and where you get distracted the most. 

If getting organized is a struggle for you or you’re just really into having things planned out, these apps can be a big help. Especially for students who have a lot on their plates.
