— September 3, 2015 — Tech
With the start of a new school year fast approaching, these student-friendly apps are the perfect way to prepare for new challenges. For many students, the start of a new school year can be a stressful and chaotic time. These apps help students navigate daily tasks such as getting homework done on time or eating a healthy meal on the go.

For many students, academics are the most stressful aspect of college life. Whether it is a tough subject or simply an unhelpful instructor, it can be difficult to achieve the perfect grade in every class. There are several apps designed to help students balance their academic workload, including crowd-sourced homework apps, exam preparation apps and contextual GPA apps.

Outside of the classroom, many students also struggle with the social aspects of college life. There are a number of student-friendly apps that are specially designed to help students make the transition to living away from home. For example, there are several campus safety apps that help students navigate to and from classes. There are also student-run delivery services that provide an easy way to grab a meal from the campus dining hall.
