If you have ever been here before you know how much I swear by using planners.
They keep your week under control and help you from getting overwhelmed. Which is a very common feeling as a college student!
I discovered while in school that the only way I could ensure that I could balance everything was to STAY ORGANIZED. And the best way to stay organized is a planner. Planners help you visualize your day and your week and keep you on top of deadlines and due dates.
Everyone has personal preferences for what they like (and don’t like) in a planner so I did some research and found a variety of academically oriented planners that have different layouts, month counts, and designs so there is something for everyone.

This is my personal favorite planner when I was in college. I personally prefer the horizontal square layout and I still use MAMBI Happy Planners for my personal life and work now that I have graduated college! Highly recommend checking out the MAMBI Happy Planners.
This is a much more simple and sleek option that is great if you are looking for a no-frills planner. It’s also great if you prefer lined dates for more details.
First, how cute?! Let’s be honest – cutest is always a bit of a factor! But this planner also has a great layout where there is a lined date section but also the color blocked square to help divide up the days.
If you’re looking to keep a running planner during college then here’s a great option. This 5 year planner is especially awesome if you have multi-year projects you’re working on during school.
This is for all my college students out there looking for a fun and less traditional planner. Not only is the layout unique but there’s cool features like habit trackers and funny quotes all throughout the planner.
Not necessarily “for students” but the Erin Condren life planners can easily work great for students. They are great quality and will hold up fantastically when you’re bringing your planner all over campus. This planner has an hourly layout which is great for anyone who wants a very detailed planner.
