Our school uses google calendar, It is easy to personalize and  school events are on a common calendar that can be uploaded. When students make appointments in our office, they immediately are sent a google invite which appears on their calendar. Our office has the attached calendars available by semester. Both formats have their fans.  The booklet is printed on heavy paper and folds to the size of a file folder. The one page version (developed by a science major) is great for shock value because it emphasizes how quickly the semester goes. It is only a 5 day a week calendar though.

Hello Colleagues,

 

I’ll start with my question: Has anyone provided something unique with regard to academic planners?  What about campus-wide access to a time-management app?

 

Background:  We provide academic planners at new student orientation each year.  The planners include info on campus resources and important dates/deadlines, plus weekly/monthly planner pages for the year.  I have found that the design of the planners is not conducive to building good time-management skills.  Also, individuals tend to want to use individualized planners, whether that means a cool paper planner or an app that provides what they need.  Most students who I meet with are already using some kind of planner (keep in mind I’m on a “type A” campus), but I have never seen a student actually use the academic planner we provide.  It seems that the funds we throw towards these planners might be better used in a more innovative manner.
