College can be fun or grueling, depending on how you look at it. When it comes to exams and classwork, the experience is not so great. However, when it comes to having fun, being social, and enjoying life, college is a blast.


Unfortunately, the latter is the dominant part of college life, which makes it imperative for students to try to make life easier. 


Editable pdf and other document readers

Finding a document reader online is easy. However, finding a reader that also allows you to make notes in the document, highlight parts, and make comments, and such things are not easy. Some readers will crash out once you try to edit a document. Foxit and Adobe Reader work fine. The former is lighter.



Successful careers start at college. However, one must be ready to join the industry elite, know what they are doing, and keep in touch. LinkedIn helps you create a professional profile. You can list down your academic and life achievements there. You can connect with the professionals in the industry that you will be joining. Even better, you can connect with peers, compare notes, and stay on top of the game. When it comes to finding a job, LinkedIn’s networks will come in handy.



Twitter is a great app when you know how to use it. Just like LinkedIn, it gives you a chance to follow the passions and industry trends. It keeps you involved with the current events. If you are a medical student, you want to stay on top of medical technology stuff, medical pandemics and outbreaks, the emergence of research-based medical procedures, and many other things. These topics hit Twitter trends first before they can get out. You can filter the topics that you see on your twitter feed.

You can alert your circle with your location and message of choice, such as "come get me."



A scientific calculator comes in handy, especially when your studies involve maths and numbers. Business, engineering, technology, engineering, and such courses demand that you have reliable calculators. If you are also trying to do business maths, you can use online calculators. Doing calculations by simply inputting the variables in a formula can make college much easier. Online calculators already know the formula. All you need is to use the variables that you are given to get the answer.



If you are looking for synergy in your documents and media, Dropbox is your best vet. It allows you to store almost everything from documents to the media. With its extensive and secure database, you can also sort everything into folders. There is even a search function just in case you forget which folder has what you are looking for.

With Dropbox, your projects are safe, notes are accessible at all times, and the media remains private. It helps you declutter your smartphone so that the phone can give you excellent performance.



On this one, many apps that you can choose are available in the marketplace. They are designed to make your revision work seamless. Cram, Goconqr, and Studyblue are good and are available for android and iOS.
