College Resources

*Updated September 2018


College can be tough, and it can be more time consuming to search the internet for hours trying to find the information that you're looking for. I'm going to share with you the top resources that I have found the most helpful throughout my college career.

Academics

Quizlet - Make your own flashcard sets, or find flashcards that others have made for your class. You can also share yours on the site so other students can find them later on.

Evernote - If you like taking notes online, you can use Evernote to have them sync to your phone and computer

Trello - Struggling to keep due dates in order? Create lists and cards in Trello for your assignments and then see them on the calendar. You can create checklists, give descriptions, and much more for each card! {See how I use Trello for school here}

Dropbox - Save all of your papers/projects in one place so you can access them from anywhere, even on a school computer!

Finances

Mint - Mint is a website where you can track your expenses/income. You can also create budgets, and it will tell you when you have gone over your allotment.

Venmo - Venmo is like a virtual wallet. You can also easily send/receive money to friends and family.
