1. Smart Writing Set

That’s why we’re so excited about the Moleskine Smart Writing Set, because it’s truly revolutionary. Complete with the Moleskine Paper Tablet, Pen+ and companion app, you can transfer your notes on a page to the digital screen. Say goodbye to long nights spent retyping your notes on your computer, because this set transcribes handwritten pages right into a Word doc. It can also record sound with the pen in case you just want to write notes later. What are you waiting for? Girl, get on this!

2. 18-Month Planner

Instead of picking something drab from the university store, consider a Moleskine Coloured Notebook instead. Honestly, this class essential is at the top of our shopping list, and we love all the colorful options too.

4. Classic Backpack

Long days on campus call for backpack that’s comfy, with tons of pockets and laptop storage space. Not to mention, it would be great to find one that dresses your outfit up instead of down. Our pick for your campus companion is the Moleskine Classic Backpack. Plus, how stylish are these color options?!

5. Limited Edition Denim Notebook 

Besides having the basics in your school supply arsenal, try adding something a bit more high-fashion to your collection. Whether you’re a freshman or a senior, one of the limited-edition notebooks by Moleskine will be the cherry on top of this school year. We love this notebook decked out in denim, and are so ready to start filling the pages! However, if denim isn’t for you, Moleskine has a huge variety online Limited Editions too, so you can definitely find the notebook that screams “you.”

6. Journey Hard Pouch 

Since you’re always involved and seeking a new adventure, why not have a pouch that represents that side of your personality?  This Journey Hard Pouch is available in multiple sizes, and depending on which you choose it can hold your tablet, iPhone or even just some credit cards. We think it’s perfect for every type of adventure you’ll encounter in college. Talk about some serious wanderlust vibes!

7. Travel Light 

A busy social and academic life guarantees you’ll definitely be spending some weekends away or staying up to late to complete your homework. That’s why a travel light like this one from Moleskine is a must for the times you’re working late or are not in your dorm. Throw it in your backpack or overnight bag, and it will be so handy to have on hand for late-night study sessions, or turn this on instead of your overhead lamp so you don’t disturb your roomie.

8. Tool Belt 

Saying goodbye to summer and heading back to college means it’s time to give your school supplies a major efficiency update. We recommend upgrading your notebook game and finding something that functions beyond just notetaking and journaling. Something like this Moleskine Tool Belt is perfect for wrapping around the front of your notebook, and helping you carry your classroom essentials. Stick your pens, phone and some cash right in the pockets, and you automatically have a revamped notebook that can keep up with your on the go lifestyle.
