Getting ready for your first day back on campus can be daunting, but packing your bag ahead of time might alleviate some of that stress. Consider these 7 backpack essentials when you start to gear up for a new semester!

1. Backpack

Get your hands on a durable backpack to hold all of your essentials. Not only will it carry all of your books, laptop, and supplies, but it will also protect your valuable items from damage. It’s important to choose a backpack with multiple compartments and pockets for easy organization and accessibility. Investing in a high-quality backpack will ensure that it will last for many school years to come.

2. Stationary items

You’ll want to have plenty of pens and pencils, as well as highlighters to be able to take notes. Sticky notes and index cards are also great to have for making quick reminders or flashcards.

3. Binder

Having a sturdy binder available for your loose documents on the first day is a MUST. There will likely be a lot of handouts and syllabuses that you will need to keep track of by the end of the day. You can even add tabbed dividers to keep your classes organized.

4. Spiral

A Spiral organizer is a great tool to keep track of assignments and deadlines. The spiral binding makes it easy to flip through the pages and the plastic tabbed dividers have pockets on the front and back to hold any homework or notes.

5. Folders

Our fashion assorted poly folders are handy for storing graded papers or to separate any extracurricular paperwork from your class work. These folders are made with a durable, lightweight material that is waterproof and works great for year-round use.

6. Laptop

These days, a lot of textbooks are accessible online so don’t forget to pack your laptop, charger and any other accessories you may need for your digital material.
