Staying Organized

In order to keep track of all your school and personal events it is important to use a calendar. Google calendar or Outlook are two user-friendly options. Use the calendar to record all assignments, tests, presentations and classes. Break down large assignments into more manageable tasks by adding mini-deadlines to your calendar. Include personal events, such as grocery shopping and online socializing, to make sure you attend to both your physical and emotional well-being. Finally, use your calendar to create a daily schedule to ensure all projects get completed.
