Back To School Essentials For College

It is back to school season which means it is time to get the essentials for all of your classes. As a senior in college, I feel like I have a lot of wisdom to offer. For the incoming freshman, I hope this list can help you with all that you need.




You will use your planner more than you use your phone. I am not kidding. As soon as one of my professors hands me my syllabus, I write all the important dates down in my planner. I have always had a Lilly Pulitzer planner and it has never failed me. You can buy a Lilly planner here.

Sweater or Cardigan


I go to The University of Alabama where it is maybe cold for an hour in February. I ALWAYS have a sweater or cardigan with me. My professors keep their rooms freezing cold. Sometimes I think I go to school in Antartica and not Alabama.



In between classes, I like to listen to music or an online lecture. Headphones are a must for college!

Water Bottle


I drink so much water throughout my day. I use a S’well insulated water bottle, because it keeps my water cold for twelve hours. They come in so many different colors and patterns! You can purchase a S’well bottle here.




You will do so much walking all over campus. Do not try and wear cute shoes or flip flops if you have classes all over the place. Comfort is key people!!

These are just a few of my essentials for college. I hope these help! What are some essentials you use in college?
