    1. An LED gooseneck desk lamp that'll help you read the ridiculously small font in your textbook during late-night sessions. The neck is flexible, which means you can angle it directly over whatever you need, and you can choose between either a warm light or a white light depending on what kind of illumination you need.

    2. Some sticky note dividers that'll help you organize your notes, so studying for your midterms and exams will be a little less painful. Just stick a divider in your notes when a new idea or an important theme is being explained and write what it is on the tab — it'll make finding what you actually need so much easier when you just need a quick reference.

    18. A mesh container to organize all your bits and pieces instead of having them strewn about your desk. It has six compartments and one drawer that'll keep your pens, pencils, highlighters, and Sharpies separated instead of in one mug that low-key looks like a stressed-out mess.

    19. An expanding file folder for hard copies of your notes, essays, and tests, because it's always a good idea to have those safely stored somewhere. Notes on your laptop are great until you spill a giant iced coffee on it and have no way to study for your final exam.

    22. A door stop to mount on the inside of your door to prevent unwanted but well-meaning visitors (*cough* MOM *cough*) from disturbing you when you're in the middle of a one-on-one with your prof, or just under a time crunch. It'll give you extra peace of mind for those days when you just need to make sure no one will walk in on you while you're trying to work.
