Must Have Supplies For College Students

Hello wonderful people, I hope that the month of March is treating you all well. In this post, I thought I share with all of you a post dedicated to all things that you need to survive college. Whether you are online or in-person, this post will surely help you get through college.

UV Blue Light Glasses

  • Wear these anytime you are working on a screen.

  • Helps you to not strain your eyes.

Erasable Pens

  • Highly recommend these! I use these all the time.

  • They write very smoothly, erase great, and come in many different colors.

  • They are great for taking fast paced lecture notes.


  • One of the most useful tools for college.

  • This will help you keep all your assignments, deadlines, appointments, etc. organized.

  • This will also help you stay ahead and know what needs to be done.

Sticky Notes

  • Write anything you want on these.

  • Super helpful for reminders and deadlines

  • Use these for note taking, pointing out important information, etc.

Portable Laptop Lap Desk

  • Now that classes are online, this is super helpful to put your computer on and work.

  • This keeps the computer elevated and reduces body aches.

Multiple Subject Notebooks

  • A great way to organize your notes all in one notebook.

  • If you have a one subject notebook, that perfectly fine; use whatever works for you.

  • Also, for math, I recommend using a graph paper notebook. It is very helpful when creating graphs.


  • An easy way to emphasize important words and definitions.

  • Super cheap and you can buy them anywhere.


  • With working from home and taking online classes, you will need a laptop/computer.

  • Yes, they are quite pricey, but this a very helpful and useful investment.

File Folders

  • A convenient and easy way to keep all important papers and syllabi together.

  • Use color coded folders for different classes and subjects.

  • Not only does this keep everything organized, but you know where everything is.

Mechanical Pencils

  • Honestly, any type of pencil is fine.

  • I personally prefer mechanical pencils because you do not have to sharpen them and you can reuse them over an dover again.

  • I think that they are more convenient for note taking and working on math problems.

Extra Things To Have


  • Something to motivate yourself to complete homework.

  • A must have! Stay away from sugary bars and focus more on natural ingredients.

Reusable Water Bottle

  • Instead of wasting money on bottled water, you can use a reusable water bottle and use it again and again.

  • Also, you can put tea, coffee, smoothies, and much more in it!
