5 Websites I Could Not Have Survived College Without

Updated on July 20, 2016

Quizlet

I lived on Quizlet when it came time to study for tests, especially finals. If you are not familiar, Quizlet is a website where you can make your own flashcards and even find flashcards your classmates have already made. This saved my life those weeks when I had three tests in a row and didn't have time to spend hours making my own flashcards and then studying them. Instead, I would just search for my class or the topic I was studying at the time and viola there were pre-made flashcards I could study anytime anywhere!

For the record, StudyBlue is also a great resource for this. I was an avid StudyBlue user for my first two years of college until they made a lot of the features paid. So if you're willing to shell out some money then I would recommend checking out StudyBlue as well!

Pandora

If you haven't heard of Pandora you have probably been living in a cave most of your life. BUT, I had to add it to the list because no pre-game or study sesh was complete without it. Itunes is great but I didn't have the time nor money to find all the songs I liked. Pandora was free, easily accessible, and I found so many new songs that are now my all time favorites!

Channel Suggestions:

-Today's Hits

-2000's Hip Hop (my favorite for parties)

-Lana Del Ray (my favorite for studying)

-Bob Marley

-Three Days Grace

-The Weeknd

Rate My Professors

If you've never heard of this website you need to check it out before you make your schedule next semester. I like to think my college experience and the classes I took were so great partially because I took the time to research professors before signing up for classes every semester. This site helped me avoid getting into classes I would dread all semester. Instead, (for the most part) all of my classes were enjoyable experiences.

Grammarly

This is a site I wish I would have found out about sooner in my college career. Grammarly is a great resource to use when writing papers, doing homework, and even sending emails. You can copy and past your work onto the site to get a thorough edit of your work or you can add the extension to your browser and it will work along side of you looking for all of your spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes. I would highly recommend it to anyone in or out of college!

Glassdoor

Glassdoor is a resource every student should take advantage of when looking for jobs. There are reviews of almost every company you can think of, salaries of jobs you may be looking into, information about how many companies interview, and its a great resource for job listings. Before applying for a job, even a job I have found outside of the site, I search for reviews and find any information I can on the interview process so I am sure this is a job I want and a job I am prepared to apply for.

Which one of these sites is your most used resource?

      Also in my country there is a service similar to "Rate My Professor" and it helped me many times. I could know what were the most frequent questions at exams for example, in order to study more topics than other ones.

      Very handy. I'm passing these on to my nephews in high school. I'm sure the profs love the RMP site...:) Sharing everywhere.
