The New Freshman 15 Also Doubles As A Student Planner
This Is NOT Your Average Planner.
The traditional student planner simply has the date and some lines. It doesn’t give students enough structure to succeed. We give your students structure to schedule their unstructured time.  The Guide To Graduation is a proven time management system which is helping first-year students maximize their time in college. We teach your students how to prioritize their whole life so they can plan for success.
