Shovel – a real-time college planner app!
Shovel is a new, real-time college planner app that Purdue is offering free to all students; it can help you to schedule your time effectively with less stress. Ever have the sinking feeling that you don't have enough time for an assignment? Or when three midterms in a week catch you completely off guard? With Shovel you can enter your course requirements, co-curricular commitments, and/or employment hours--and be able to balance your time so that you also schedule downtime and breaks.  Shovel is a tool that can assist you in creating structure to your days, and avoid the risk of sitting in front of your computer for long stretches of time. You can access your free Shovel account by following this link and using your email to sign-up.  Give it a try and let your advisor know how it’s working for you!
