Organization Is Key

One important way to stave off anxiety over school work is to stay organized. Many students benefit from a white board calendar where they can see the entire month to plan out lead time for studying and completing assignments. Wallpops.com makes a peel and stick colorblock dry erase calendar that you can just stick on your wall above your desk to always have a clear view of your responsibilities.
