All successful students are organized. One of the most important organizational tools you have at your disposal is a calendar. Not just any calendar, but an academic calendar. In fact, academic calendars are not just for students, professors also use them to manage their time. Whats unique about an academic calendar? Well, its a calendar, but its specialized for academics because it follows the school year, from August to August, rather than the calendar year.
Its not uncommon, especially in school, to mark important days and make appointments a semester in advance, which might take you from one calendar year into another. This tiny difference allows students to use the same calendar throughout the school year rather than use one during the Fall semester and another during the Spring semester. An academic calendar keeps you current.
