College students will need to be prepared for a major life change. During their transition from high school to college, a student will find that their academics will become more stressful and that they will be required to take on a much heavier workload. With the right resources, a college student will be well on their way to acing every test and having fun in the process. In fact, the following going away gift ideas are perfect for the new college student that is going away.

Scanner Pen

C-Pen offers a revolutionary way for students to take notes directly from their texts. When reading an important fact, all the student has to do is scan the text with their C-Pen and it will insert the text into any application that the student chooses. This is a great way to take notes while reading and to highlight the most important subject matter without the use of a highlighter.

SolidTek DigiMemo 692 Digital Notepad with Memory

Digital notepads are the wave of the future and will be able to condense a student’s many notebooks into one. These pads have their own built-in memory just like a computer and can hold up to 1,000 pages of notes at a time. Notes are easily organized, viewed, deleted and even prompted into their own windows so that a student always has their notes available in a concise manner.

Voice Recorder

With some classes stretching over three hours in length, a student can easily miss important notes while in the process of writing other information down. Lectures are essential to record so that if subject matter is missed or needs to be reviewed, a person will be able to play it back at any time that they wish. Voice recorders are permitted in most classrooms and will be dependent on the professor’s rules. However, there will be a plethora of professors that allow their lectures to be recorded by their students. For an inexpensive cost, a student can have a boost in their academics with a voice recorder.

Tablet with Webcam

Tablets are not only great for checking sports scores, they are also great for group study sessions via webcam and chatting with family members back home. There are tablets in every price range with some lower-end models costing under $100. While they may not have the memory of an iPad, they are more than enough to do quick research, chat with friends or use for studying via apps.

Gift Cards

Not all going away gift ideas will be able to cover everything a college student needs. With a Visa or MasterCard gift card, a student will be able to pick up all of the essentials that they need as they arise. If they need a new backpack for school or they need a new set of pens, they will be able to use a gift card at virtually any retail outlet. While this may not be the most unique gift, it is one that can be used for virtually anything a student needs while they are readjusting to college life.
