As a college student, it goes without saying you’re busy, don’t have a lot of free time, and if you’re anything like myself, rips my hair out and curls into a ball every mention of a research paper.

Don’t worry, UMSL Accelerate understands the struggle. That’s why we put together these 7 time management apps that will surely make your life as a college entrepreneur easier.
