15 Genius Tech Items You Need For College

Out of all of the things that you are buying for college, tech items are probably pretty low on your list. You have your phone and computer, so what more do you need, really? This was exactly what I thought when I was packing for school… and then I dropped my phone the first week and completely shattered it. So, my first college lesson learned was that you should always have a REAL phone case, not a flimsy Harry Potter-themed one, like what I had. But enough about me, let’s talk about you.

Going off to college is scary, but it’s a little less scary when you are prepared. A good way to be prepared is to think about all of the possible things that can go wrong, and plan ahead. Think you’ll lose your keys? Think you’ll drop your computer? Think your phone will die while you are taking a Snapchat? It happens to all of us. Luckily for you there are some pretty simple tech items that can solve all of these problems and more. If you want to try some tech items that will help your college career, check these out! I promise you won’t regret it.
