It’s rare to walk across campus and not see a sea of students with their heads in their smartphones.
We’ve become accustomed to using technology to make our lives easier, cheaper, safer, more entertaining, and more productive – and nowadays, there’s an app for pretty much everything!
Here are 5 useful apps for students:
