Being a commuter student, we don't often have the luxury of our home being close by. So instead we pack for our backpack for the day rather than the class. We often have things that those who live on campus wouldn't need! Here are twelve essentials for commuter students!
1. A good backpack
Although they may not be the most stylish, they are going to save your back in the long run!
2. A water bottle/travel mug
This is something that is common with all college students. Save money and bring your water and coffee!
3. Lunch bag
Eating on campus everyday can be pricey, packing your lunch is the most cost friendly approach. If you know your going to be on campus all day, pack extra snacks as well!
4. Phone charger/laptop charger
Buy a spare to phone charger and keep it your backpack. If your going to be on campus for a long period of time, it's always a good idea to bring your laptop charger.
5. A bin to keep your books in
Having a small bin in your car to keep your books will keep you organized. It will also help your back a bit as well, it always you to alternate books if you need it.
These are must, especially if you like to listen to music while you study!
7. A planner
This goes for all college students! This will help keep you organized and help you plan your weeks!
8. Pencil pouch
This will help keep all your writing utensils in one place, while still having everything you need!
9. A sweater
The fall especially is a weird time for weather! Keep a sweater or sweatshirt in your car in case you get chilly.
10. Gym clothes
Keep gym clothes in your car in case you want to work out after class. Just remember to take them out so your car doesn't smell!
This will save you from having to find a computer lab and allow you to work on homework in between classes
12. Your student ID
Keep this on you at all times! You never know when you might need it!
