The college experience should be all about working hard and partying hard, and there are lots of gadgets which can help to ensure that yours is the typical college experience only better.
Check out this list of great gadgets every college student needs:
Evernote Moleskine Smart Notebook
What makes this notebook better than the competitors is the fact that it allows you to take notes using paper and pen and then turn them into digital notes in an instant using your smartphone. So, if you prefer to use pen and paper in class, as opposed to your laptop, this is a great solution that will give you the best of both worlds.
A Surge Protector
It’s every college student’s nightmare. You’ve worked all night on that all important paper. You’re ready to print, and then disaster strikes. A sudden surge of power renders your MacBook useless, and your work is gone forever. This could have been so easily avoided if you’d been using a surge protector. Every college student needs one.
An External Hard Drive
The above scenario could also have been easily avoided if only you had backed your paper up on an external hard drive. Because you will be doing a lot of computer work while you’re studying, you should invest in a good 1tb external hard drive and make sure to backup any important documents at least once a week, or after every edit in the case of crucial work.
OtterBox Phone Charging Case
One of the gadgets for college students that will really revolutionize your life is the OtterBox. This amazing phone case will not only protect your phone from accidents, but it will double your battery life so that when you have a long day of classes, followed by a night of partying, you can still access your phone should you need it.
A Wireless Speaker
Wireless speakers make impromptu dorm parties much more fun. Everyone can take turns streaming their favorite sounds throughout the dorm, so you get a much more eclectic and exciting evening’s entertainment.
A Bluetooth Coffee Machine
Sometimes coffee is the only thing that keeps us college students going. Pulling an all-nighter becomes the norm rather than the exception, so what could be better than having a coffee machine that will brew your coffee on demand without you even having to take your eyes off your work? Nothing much, right?
With the Kindle Voyage, you could conceivably carry every textbook you need for your whole course around in your hand. No more bad backs, overfilled backpacks, and missing books – just switch it on, search for what you need and get working.
If you want to avoid the freshman 15, you need to stay active, and what better to motivate you than a cute little activity tracker who sits right there on your wrist and lets you know how good or bad you’ve been?
With a Roku, you can stream music, watch Netflix, rent movies and play games. It’s the perfect piece of kit for quiet nights in with your dorm buddies.
