Every student has things that they can't go to school without. College essentials are necessary to accomplish things. There are five things that I carry to college every day that I think other people should carry with them. They are:
1) A planner-
My planner is my life. I carry it everywhere. It has all of my important dates and meetings in it. I also write due dates and just important information in it. I would be lost without my planner. And there are some really cute planners out. I normally use a different color pen for each class or event.
I have a notebook for every class. The notebooks allow me to take notes in class and not have to use notebook paper. Some of my classes have loose-leaf books so the notebooks allow me to only have one binder to carry.
3) A water bottle
I carry a water bottle around with me all day. I can just refill it during the day at a water fountain and I am saving money. I bought a cute one to use. I normally add a water packet or fresh fruit to my water to make it taste better.
4) A snack
I always have a snack with me on campus. I don't have enough time between my two classes to eat a full on lunch so I always have a granola bar in my purse to tie me over until my class is over. If I don't have a granola bar, I have something quick and simple. This also prevents me from hitting up the vending machine and getting unhealthy food.
5) A journal
I always have a journal on me in case I get blog post ideas or I need to jot something down really quick.
6) An umbrella
I live in south Alabama so the weather is normally unpredictable. It could be sunny one second and it's raining the next. I always have a mini umbrella in either my purse or bookbag so I don't get caught all the way across campus in the rain and ready to leave. There have been quite a few times that I haven't had the umbrella and I wished I had it.
These may not work for you but these are some of the essentials that are always on me and they come in handy a lot.
