Life Hacks: College Approved

Chances are, you’ve seen your fair share of life hacks. They’re shared all over Twitter, Pinterest, and other social media platforms – and they float around on popular image sharing sites like Reddit and Imgur.  Life hacks are simple tips and tricks we can use to make everyday tasks a whole lot easier. Who wouldn’t want that? Anything that can make our lives a little more simple is a winner in our book, but when it comes to simplifying college – life hacks are the ultimate champion. College is a super busy time – we’re learning rapidly, we’re meeting tons of new people, and we don’t have all that much money.

Taking all that into mind, we compiled some life hacks that are perfect for all kinds of things college students encounter on the regular. Take a look!


1. Networking

When meeting someone important, repeating their name out loud after they introduce themselves will help you remember it.


2. Studying

If you can’t stay focused on studying, Cold Turkey allows you to temporarily block distracting websites.


3. Group Projects

Working on a project with a large group? Doodle helps you find a meeting time that fits into everyone’s schedule.

4. Dorm Food

Tired of your same old microwaved meals? Save some extra veggies next time you visit the dining hall and spice up your ramen.

5. Stuffy Dorm Room

Want to keep your stuffy dorm room smelling nice? Keep a dryer sheet on top of your fan or heater for instant freshness.

6. Organization

Need more closet space? Use soda tabs to layer hangers instead of keeping them side-by-side.


7. Easy Cooking

Don’t feel like going grocery shopping? Supercook lets you select the ingredients you already have, then gives you recipes you can make.

8. Presentations & Speeches

Have a big presentation or taking a public speaking course? Highlight sections of your speech in different colors so it’ll be harder to lose your spot.
