Does anyone have any good ideas for a freshman EDC. I am going to be a freshman this fall and am going to do some research myself but any good suggestions would help.

How about a really good backpack?

You are going to have plenty of heavy books and start now with a good backpack will save you a lot of back troubles later in life. 

And wear it on both shoulders.

No smoking - don't start just to fit in, more money for EDC items if you don't spend it on smokes.

 

Sorry about the adult advice, couldn't help myself. LOL

I second the good bag idea. Specially if it is one that you can take on interviews after school is over. A bag with a nice patina on it makes a good statement. I would steer clear of any pocket knives, multi-tools, or key chain tools, at least for Mon.-Fri. EDC. Last thing you need is to get investigated or expelled from school for carrying something the school doesn't allow, or something the school believes to be dangerous or inappropriate. A durable pen, such as a Space Pen, and flashlight would be good to add.

do you mean things like back packs and binders or are you talking about the more tactical yet acceptable things for school?

 

If thats what you mean I would recommend a good (bladeless) multitool, check out SOG's line of back packs, hell these days you can even get ballistic vest inserts for you backpack.

I assume you mean apart from the school supplies and textbooks you will expect to carry.

 

1. A micro USB for the keychain. Use it to backup important papers. I forgot my homework more than once and my little USB and the computer lab saved me.

 

2. Always carry a pen and small notebook in your pocket (too many uses to mention but you will need it).

 

3. A deck of cards

 

I also carried a folder in my messenger bag specifically for papers I knew I would have to get out and either use or hand in for that day. It was also good for papers I was handed that I needed to put away quickly and keep decent looking.
