Here at HC Lasell, we are preparing for our first week of classes. Join us for Back-to-Class week, for articles on how you to can prepare for a successful school year.
Stationery is the most exciting part of a new school year. I have tested out a bunch of stationary to give you the best stationery for the 2021-2022 school year.
Zebra Pen Midliners Highlighter– $15.99
If you are a fan of pastel highlighters I highly suggest this brand. These highlighters do not dry out, I have had them for two years and they are of great value. They also have a wider tip and thin tip to give you more than one way to use them.
I can never go back to other black pens after buying these. These pens last forever and they are so smooth to write with. I had to adust my handwriting to these pens and noticed that it looked so much better.
Bic Gel-ocity Pen– $7.99
The Gel-ocity pens sre some of the smoothest pens I have ever written with I don’t have an issue with the color ending. The colors are so beautiful and vibrant. The only downside is that you need to be careful of smudging.
I do not suggest using traditional pencils in college, they are such a hassle. Bic mechanical pencils are classic for a reason and give you a bang for your buck. You can even choose to get a smaller pack and buy refills to reduce your plastic waste.
Post-It Flags– $2.59
This is the best post-it notes to use if you have psychical textbooks, this is a great way to mark important text without using high lighters. I like to designate a color to a certain task and it makes going back and referencing books so easy.
