Preparing for class usually means breaking out your laptop and heading straight to a search engine. With hundreds of websites, it is difficult to distinguish reliable sources. Make sure your Wi-Fi is up and running because here are 5 websites GMU students need!

1. Blackboard

This site is crucial for completing course work. Blackboard contains the grade book for your classes and professors can even post announcements. I have major FOMO if I don’t check Blackboard at least twice a day.

2. Patriot Web

What’s college without classes? This website allows Patriots to register for courses. You can also view your midterm and final grades, that is if you like being scared.

3. Get Connected

Not only can students browse several clubs and organizations, but there are also over five-hundred ways to get involved. Instead of online shopping for your size, surf this website for your perfect group.

4. Maintenance/Service Work Request

Living on campus occasionally requires upkeep. If there’s ever a maintenance problem in my room, I’ll head go to Researching information for my dorm is serious adulting.

5. OneClass

Of course, I saved the best for last. OneClass is a tremendous resource for all college students! I’ve become an Elite Note Taker, which has helped me earn better grades and cool eGift cards. Students can also download class notes and study guides to claim their A’s in each course!
