5 Back To School Supplies For A Fresh Start In College

August 2, 2018

Patricia Cordero

With these back to school supplies you will share more about your personality and also start a new cycle with cool vibes.

One of my favorite moments as a student was going back to school. Yes, it was. Not because I was a nerd that wanted to go back to learn new stuff, but because I loved to get all the supplies that I needed to start a school term. As far as I remember, I always loved pens, pencils, backpacks, and all kinds of stationery, but my favorites have always been notebooks in all sizes, colors and varieties. Even now that I can take notes on my smartphone, I always carry a little notebook in my purse.


School supplies are a way for us to express our personality, and also an incentive for a fresh and positive beginning. Having a nice backpack full of all the things needed to improve the time we spend at school will help us perform better, so here we have some suggestions for you to get before the start of the academic year.







Backpack

A good backpack is the start of it all. It needs to have a design that truly expresses your personality and to be comfy enough in case you need to carry a lot of stuff.


WHAT?

If your style is rather classic, one of your best options would be the always faithful Herschel. They have a selection of neutral colors and your computer will fit in this bag along with your notebooks and other items.

On the other hand, if you have a taste for superheroes and cartoons or you're rather in a tropical mood, Vans has something for you. They offer plenty of colors and prints so you can choose whatever suits you best!

If you are more into tech, we have the miracle backpack: it’s anti theft, water resistant and you can even charge your devices with the USB charging port. It also has a nice amount of pockets, so your computer, keys, lunch, you name it, will properly fit inside of it. You can also plug your earphones in the outside and keep your phone safe while listening to your favorite tunes while commuting to school.


PERFECT FOR?

A backpack is perfect to carry everything you need for school, whether you like bringing your computer or a couple of notebooks plus all those things you might need along the day.


WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE?

From all the backpacks out there, those with USB ports seem to be the most reliable. Its design might not be very attractive to those who like something more colorful, but it is very useful being able to charge your devices while commuting.
