|4 Incredibly Useful Websites for College Students|
Google has been the internet king for some time now. As the top search engine online, much of the internet is ruled by Google and their dictations. That being said, as internet god, they have certainly provided us with some of the best tools and resources available online. Google Scholar is one such tool. This resource provides users to search for scholarly excerpts, articles, and documents for academic research and study. This is a great tool for writing papers and expanding your academic breadth. Use this tool to supplement your library research for useful and legitimate sources.
Another from the Google God, Google Calendar is by far one of the best organizational tools available for free online. Time management and organization are two traits in college students that are just as important as knowledge and ability. Without the proper organization skills many college students lose track of their busy schedule and mounting work and fall behind. This tool allows you to upload all due dates, class times, text dates, group meetings, and lectures into an online calendar. The calendar will send an email notification when a date and time approaches. Use this tool to stay on top of your work and organize your life.
