    There is a total of 4,140 colleges in the US, and every year more than 17 million enrolled to study.

    The college students had to go through some tough times with their curriculum's.

    Most of it's considered as a learning experience in real world scenarios.


But time and time again, there’s some software that’s introduced to help ease the life of the college students. Here are 5 useful software/applications for college students:

1. Grammarly

It’s easily one of the best proofreading software’s available on the market right now.

Essays and thesis’ are inevitable in our college life. We often lose marks because of plagiarism and grammatical errors. Grammarly will help you spot errors on the dissertation and the essays you write right away on the platform you use. The word add-on is a valuable addition.

2. Wolfram Alpha
