Taking a step into the unknown always brings a certain level of unrest and anxiety. Preparing to start your college education is not an exception. There is really no good reason to stress about it. But sometimes you just can’t help it.
So instead of giving in to baseless concerns and worries – your best bet would be to spend your time productively. If you prepare yourself for what is to come the fear of the unknown won’t bother you that much.
One of the most effective ways to do so is to look into tools that will help you through the challenges of college life. Luckily, there is no shortage of such tools out on the internet. To the point where the abundance of options makes it difficult to choose the best ones.
Here is the list of the most commonly used and most efficient platforms that will cover all your basic needs while you get through college.
There are many platforms to help with every student problem imaginable out there. Some of them compile multiple services to offer them all in one place. This can help you save plenty of time you would otherwise spend trying to find sites that suit your needs.
Studyfy is one of such platforms. It offers all the basic academic services you can think of. Their selection of services covers the basics of virtually every major.
It offers editing and proofreading for your written assignments, essay examples to help you write your own academic papers, as well as loads of helpful articles and guides to improve your academic performance.
It also offers online tutoring on a multitude of subjects, so you can get professional assistance in case you find yourself falling behind the curve in the classroom.
All in all, it’s an extremely helpful platform with a wide range of services. And while you are likely to have to look for other websites to solve some of the more specific academic problems, Studyfy will easily cover all the basic tasks you will ever run into in college.
It will quickly become your saving grace. And you will find it an invaluable tool that will help you out up until the very day of your graduation.
College students get way more independence than their high school colleagues. Most of the time once you start your first year – you will be expected to make your own calls and bear responsibility for your own decisions.
This is a very nice perk of your new life. But this freedom can be (and is) easily misused. Especially when it comes to balancing work and downtime.
If you are one of those people who find it hard to maintain discipline on their own – don’t be shy to admit it. Plenty of young students experience trouble when they first get the taste of independent life.
And there is nothing wrong with needing a little help as you are trying to focus on studying. Fortunately, there are plenty of platforms that can assist you with that task.
Cold Turkey is a service that will allow you to block out all unnecessary distractions. Ones that may make it difficult for you to concentrate on studying. It can block websites, applications, or even your entire computer if you feel like doing some manual studying. It also has a version for almost any device so you can use it on your phone as effectively as on your computer.
Keep in mind that it’s rather difficult to cheat the system. So plan your studying sessions carefully and time the blocking accordingly. Otherwise, you might end up locked out of social media for far longer than you’d want to.
You should also make sure you have everything you need with you before you lock a website or an app. You wouldn’t want to end up without your studying playlist.
Regardless of if you are studying in a classroom or online – you will find yourself overwhelmed with information. Not only are you expected to process it, but you will also need to store it for future reference.
Not so long ago you would end up with ceiling-high piles of paper in your room. But today you can store gigabytes of information online for easy management and reference.
Dropbox is one of the cloud storage platforms that allows you to do just that. It is basically a huge online drawer where you can store all the materials you need:
- Writing assignments;
- Scans, etc.
It’s universal storage that you can access from virtually anywhere. All you need is an internet connection – and you can stop worrying about whether or not you took the paper you needed when you left home today.
You can dump all your files into your Dropbox account. But the lack of any sort of organization will make quick access very difficult. It may be tempting to just upload materials and forget about them until you actually need them. But you should definitely take some time to organize your account from time to time.
Create different categories for different subjects and time frames. Clear up files that you no longer need. The time and effort you invest into organizing your Dropbox account are very much worth it.
It will help you navigate through your files much easier. And considering you will likely have to share access to your account with your colleagues – it’s a routine you absolutely have to go through from time to time.
It is important that you don’t shy away from help. Don’t make it a matter of principle to do everything on your own. This sort of attitude will only needlessly complicate your academic life. Everyone needs a hand from time to time. There is nothing wrong with reaching out occasionally.
And using online platforms isn’t the only source of assistance out there. Connect with your fellow students and professors. Ask questions, look for answers.
Don’t be passive when it comes to the education process. Assuming an active position will help better understand the subject of your studies. It will also show your educators that you are interested in what you do.
