Gadgets & Gizmo's for College Students

Updated on February 16, 2015

College Gadgets your Favorite Student will LOVE!

Lets face it, Gadgets are what make life COOL!

College Students are the most tech-savvy group out there. This group easily leads the way in tech and gadget usage. Now, some gadgets out there render themselves totally obsolete, while others are totally indispensable. So what does a College Student need in their arsenal of college gear?

A laptop is indispensable and no college student should be without one.

Flash drives are a must to back up all those diligently taken notes, or better yet a portable hard drive. How about a Voice Recorder, to catch some ramblings of the Professor, which may have been missed. Don't forget stress relievers are important for College Students, winding down with a Roku 2 Player to stream Netflix and other media or maybe just playing some Call of Duty on an Xbox 360.

Read on for Best Techy Gadgets your favorite student.

      Probably the video camera. I attend the Art Institute right now and they have an equipment cage where we can "check out" gadgets like at a library!
