Apps Every College Student Needs

As a college student, I am always trying to find new fun apps to help improve and organize my life. Here are a few of my must-have applications for college!


Evernote (Free)

This is by far my favorite note-taking app to date. It’s user-friendly and easy to share notes with classmates. I also enjoy how easy it is to organize and categorize your notes into individual notebooks for each subject. And the elephant logo just makes it all the cuter!


Quizlet (Free)

Any student knows that Quizlet is an essential study tool. You can create your own flashcards or search hundreds of pre-made study sets for a multitude of different subjects. My favorite feature is the learn feature wherein Quizlet will help you study through a series of matching and fill in the blank exercises that makes learning a breeze!


Moment (Free)

If you struggle from the distractions of your phone and social media while studying, this is the perfect app for you! You can track your daily app usage and set time limits on how much you use them as well. The app also lets you set goals on how often you use certain apps!


Mint (Free)

This is the perfect budgeting app for college students. It’s a personalized way to help you track your bills and budget your money. And it provides free advice on things like credit and budgeting too.


Venmo (Free)

Venmo is absolutely essential for every college student. It’s an easy way to pay your friends back when you don’t have cash on you. All you have to do is connect your bank account and you’re ready to go!


Survival Kit Coupons (Free)

As a college student, we are all bound to a quite small budget. This application helps find you coupons to use in your area. All you have to do is verify your school email and you can start saving!


Circle of 6 (Free)

As a woman in college, safety is one of my top priorities. Circle of 6 lets you choose 6 of your closest friends to add to your “circle.” If you ever find yourself in a risky or unsafe situation, you can use the app to send a text to your circle with your exact location. It’s a great app to have especially if you live alone or ever find yourself walking home alone at night!


My Fitness Pal (Free)

This app is a great way to track your health and eating. It can be difficult to stay on top of your nutrition and health whilst in college, but this app easily allows you to manage it all. You can log the foods you eat, track your workouts, and set future health goals for yourself.
