Is your college life going to start soon? If yes, you should have an idea about the back-to-school supplies for college. With technological advancements, the back-to-school supplies list needs to be updated. The way of teaching and learning both have been reshaped now. Different gadgets are involved in education more than ever. Learning demands you to invest your time and money. But make sure you invest your money in the right products. The products that are most needed at the college. Buy the products that meet all your academic needs and let you excel.

To ensure you don’t miss out on any of the necessary items, here is a list of back-to-school supplies for college. This list features 10 items that are necessary for every college student. So make sure to buy them all before going back to college.  


The backpack is a necessary item that must be on the back-to-school supplies list for college. For every level, of course, the size of the backpack varies. But it’s a must-have for every college student.

For the college, be careful about the size of the backpack you are buying. Invest in the right size to be useful throughout your academic year. The bag should be large enough to fit your laptop and charger. Go with a spacious design to carry all your essentials in it.

What about buying the city backpack? It comes with brass fittings. The robust zippers make it durable. It has enough capacity for a laptop. And the side pocket lets you put your water bottle in it.

USB/ Flash Drive

At college, the way of doing assignments changes. You have a lot of material in the soft form, from books to assignments. And leaving all the material on your computer is not safe.

You need a flash drive to store all your material in soft form. Callie’s custom USB flash drive memory stick is an amazing flash drive for students. These USB sticks provide a fun way to work. Keep this adorable stick with you and say bye to data losses.

Laptop with charger

When it comes to college supplies, you can never overlook the importance of a laptop. And of course, make sure to carry the charger along with the laptop. You will have to spend all day working on it. So there is a probability that its battery will die.

The type of laptop you should buy depends on your usage requirements. MacBook is a great choice for many people. But MacBook will not work for you if you have to work on graphic designing. It’s a big decision. So make sure to investigate your needs and specifications before buying a laptop. 

If you already have a laptop in school, it may be enough for your college life. It all depends on what you own and which field you will enter.


No matter how old you are, the need for a notebook never dies. Whether a college student, a housewife, or a working man; everybody needs to pen down something in daily life. And for students, it’s one of the essentials. You can’t imagine a student without a pen and notebook, right? So here you go with Callie’s personalized blank cocktail notebook.

Usually, the colleges have printers installed in computer labs. Every student is allowed to print a specific number of pages. But if you have a lot of stuff to print, investing in a printer is not a bad choice. It will save you from standing in long queues waiting for your turn to take a printout.
