University life is not the easiest. Especially not when you’re running broke, running behind all your assignments and have barely revised for the upcoming tests, or running out of time to do everything that you should be doing, or you want to do. Running from class to class, keeping up with social life and getting little time to yourself has a way of taking a toll on you.
University, however, is not supposed to be a time when you’re pushed to the wall by all the things you’re required to do as a student. It’s a time that you should also have fun and explore a lot of experiences that excite you. This is the time to make friends from all over the world, a time to pursue your interests and hobbies. All you need to do is make the time to be doing stuff in a pace that’s not a death or life kind of pace.
Thanks to technology, a lot of things have gotten easier. There are all kinds of gadgets to make all kinds of activities much easier and faster. With the right gadgets, a student’s life will be less stressful, more fun and with lots and lots of time to spend away from worrying about tests and assignments. Below we’ll look at some of the gadgets that will make university life easier.
Almost everyone has one, and if you don’t you’d better get one for yourself, especially if you’re a student in university. Other than the obvious things that young people use their smartphones for – namely taking thousands of photos, surfing social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube – they can be really useful when it comes to being productive as student. They can be used for keeping reminders of due dates for assignments and exam schedules instead of having notes stuck all over your desk. There are also a lot of other apps that not only put a lot of information on your fingertips as a student, but also help you wind down and have fun.
USB flash drive
There are very few things in university experience that can be worse than losing all your hard work on your assignments and projects thanks to your computer crashing. Having a flash drive to back up all your work with will give you peace of mind, and you can take your work with you wherever.
Bluetooth coffee maker
Most college students live on caffeine. It’s absolutely necessary for those early morning lectures and late night studying for tests, not to mention transnighting for finals. Having a coffee maker with you makes sure you can have your life saving beverage whenever you need it, and you don’t have to spend money – that you probably don’t have – on coffee shops. A Bluetooth one will even make your coffee while you grab a few more minutes of sleep in the morning.
There’s nothing more annoying than a dead phone when you really need it. It gets worse when you have to rush to class and have no time to charge it, and worst when you’re nowhere near a charging port and it dies. A portable back up charger is the ultimate solution for this nightmare. Charge it overnight and you’ll have back up power for your phone in your bag throughout the next day and you’ll never have to deal with an empty battery.
University life definitely gets a lot more hassle-free with these few gadgets in hand.
