In my work with college students specifically and when I was a graduate student myself, I found 8 week grids very helpful to look at the semester as a whole. These grids can work for life outside of the university schedule–it’s just that 2 pages of 8 week grids usually covers the semester as a whole. We always found it helpful to record all major deadlines, events, and breaks so we could see how it would all fit together.
In case these tools are helpful to you, I am sharing a blank PDF of an 8 week grid where you can write in the dates of your choice.
