The Latest & Greatest Resources Online
Bookmarking useful websites in college is on every student’s to do list. Unfortunately, shuffling through your pages and organizing your online tools can be a hassle for everyone.
When organizing my own weekly bookmarks this morning, I lost track of time and ended up spending 2+ hours picking the right pages, organizing by categories and, for the most part, getting distracted. That’s why I created a list of recent web pages & online tools for HC- saving you time and bringing you online updates you’ll definitely use at some point in your college career.
There are so many useful sites out there today, and this is only a fragment of the lists I have put together in the past. I will make sure to keep it updated and repost any new sites or list changes that I make. If you have any other suggestions, please leave a comment below with the URL in your post! I would love to see what the HackCollege community can contribute and to learn about some new, interesting pages as well.
Anyway, here’s my recent list of the latest and greatest resourceful web pages today. Enjoy!

Another way to manage your money and monthly budgeting.
This is another “don’t judge the title” site. If you want to be updated on the latest trending news, without having to read all the pages in between, stop here and keep yourself in check (mom or not, the news is the news).
