The college schedule maker you need.

Whether you’re kicking off college as a freshman or it’s the beginning of a new semester in your senior year, the daily schedule of any college student can be a lot to keep track of. With lectures at different times on different days and online courses or labs that need unique login info, this isn’t the straightforward back-to-back class schedule of a high school student. It’s a complex balance of classes, commutes, studying, homework, projects, essay writing, and (if you’re lucky) time to eat lunch. To make sure you don’t miss a start time or study session, use Adobe InDesign as a class schedule maker and stay on top of every obligation, all week long.

Details to consider for any new schedule.

A good schedule doesn’t just cover the where and when of your courses. It factors in travel time, helps you prioritize your responsibilities, and takes into consideration group projects and study groups. Here are some important details to include before jumping into schedule-builder mode.

 

  • Professor and class names for each course
 
  • Class, lecture, and lab start and end times
 
  • Class locations or links and login info for online learning courses
 
  • Travel time between class locations or how much time is needed to prep before an online course
 
  • Contact information for students in your study groups
 
  • How much work or study time is needed for projects or exams, and where that fits into your schedule
 
  • Free class time that’s open for scheduling meetings, studying, or group project work
 
  • Project deadlines and exam dates
