Every day, during the school year, we find myself on the edge of a panic attack when we think about all of the things we need to get done. This moment usually hits after we’ve finished scrolling Tumblr or watching Netflix—time spent watching Parks and Rec is not time wasted. As a college student, it’s easy to spend hours scrolling the depths of the Internet while avoiding homework and studying. Here are a few websites specifically for college students and tools to make managing your workload easier.
