I'm about to start classes and was just wondering what the most productive school supplies are in college, since it isn't like high school where you can run back to your locker when you need something.
I was originally planning on using binders for all my classes, but then I realized that on days when I have 3 classes back to back, carrying around three binders might be too hard. Also, the desks in lectures are so small...will I even have room?
The reason I like binders is because they make staying organized easier, because you can just punch holes in anything as you go and move the pages around.
Notebooks take up less room, but in my opinion, they get messy SO easily, and then there is nowhere to put old tests and handouts.
About laptops...should I carry it around all the time in case I want to type something up without going back to my dorm? That seems really annoying, but since studying in your dorm seems pointless (too many distractions, too noisy, etc), what should I plan on doing here?!
