Organize your semester from the start!
You may have your paper planner from your school, fill your Google calendar on your computer and phone with important dates Yet, there is one more strategy you can use for the free-flowing nature of a semester: the white board! Get the right sized board for your space, cool dry erase markers, and an eraser. The white board can be changed daily, is in front of your face in the morning. When dates of work/recreation change, erase and put the new dates on your white board. Try it--let me know how it works for you.
