How to Get Better Organized For College
  • Opening Intro -

    You'll be heading off to college this fall for the first time or you may be continuing with your studies.

    As you advance through college, you'll notice that the academic requirements seem tougher with increased demand on your time and resources.

Get organized before leaving for college this fall.

Successful college students have found out what it takes to make the grade and one important essential is personal organization. Before you start classes this fall, developing or improving your system for tracking things must begin now.

Keep It Simple, Sam — Employ the K.I.S.S. principle when getting organized. This means creating a plan that is simple to implement and easy to follow. Make things too complicated and you’ll be at the service of the plan instead of the plan serving you.

Color Code Your Subjects — You’ll be carrying around multiple files for your classes so why not simply color-code each one? Choose a green folder for your environmental sciences class, brown for your foundations of business class and other colors such as yellow, blue, red and black. Stick your notes in the respective file to keep good track of everything.

Binders, Three-Ring — Besides a file system you can make good use of a traditional three-ring binder to organize your information according. Choose a 1-inch or wider binder to ensure that everything can fit inside. You’ll be working with college-ruled notebook paper and section dividers. Tip: Match the colors of your file folders with your binder dividers. If you use a two-system plan, then completed work can be taken from the binder and placed in the appropriate file.

Write It, Track It — In this electronic age, it may be just as important to write it down on paper as it is to record this information on a handheld device. In many cases your professor may simply frown on you turning on your iPhone to text yourself a message, therefore make use of index cards or scrap paper to jot down assignments, to track term paper deadlines and whatever else you have coming due. Transfer this information to your handheld device later and toss the paper.

Concluding Thoughts

This digital age means you’re more likely to work with an electronic calendar than with a hard copy. However, using both can ensure that you never miss a deadline and stay organized regardless of what pressures are coming your way.
