What's the best way to stay organized?

How do you guys keep on top of all your deadlines, assignments, etc. in university? Do you use day planners or does another method work better for you?

I'm still in high school, but I find the best way is to write stuff down. EVERYWHERE.

On lists, on my hand, on a planner, on sticky notes.

It's how I roll.

I'm a big fan of using my planner. I also have a 4 month calender on my wall - so i can see what i'm doing for the entire semester, it gives you a feel of when you'll be more busy (aka when you need to start things earlier, and work harder).
I also make lists of things i have to do within a __ day timespan, and I have a list of all the due dates for everything for the whole semester.

I use my cellphone calendar, find it very useful for more than just homework. You can also set up a routine with other people (so you won't give up on it as easily) to do homework together or whatever. :D

My agenda/planner is so useful.
I may not be in university yet, but I think that's one thing I'm going to continue using next year in university.
I write down EVERYTHING in there, not just homework.. but any events/meetings or anything like that.. keeps everything in order.
Colour coding things always makes it easier to see and recognize too.

[size=6] A planner really helps. Keep referring to it. Whenever something new comes up, add it to your planner. If you think you might not be able to do something on your planner, reschedule it for some other time. [/size]
