There are some things you will find at every desk at ID, so put your name on it, make it distinct, or bring a lot to ensure you always have your favorite things on hand.
A little context…
Yes, obviously, you’ll want to write things down, but students seem be quite particular about the pens they use. Everyone has his or her implement of choice.
Here are some of our favorites:
Staedtler Lumograph Pencils
Good Old Sharpies
Lined, Grid, Large, Pocket-sized, Cheap, Not-so-Cheap; You’ll probably own one of every sketchbook type while at ID. Some students separate them by class, others have one to rule them all. From Moleskine to Generic Brand as long as you have something to capture your ideas you’ll be covered.
Bring your favorite mug from home to enjoy while getting that caffeine fix. You’ll need it.
Our sustainability committee is dedicated to cutting down on on the waste produced at ID, but that’s no reason to not stay hydrated.
Projects with your teamates always go better when no one is feeling hunger pangs. Snacks of all sorts are stashed in desks at ID.
As of March 5, 2014, Chicago has had 73.4 inches of snow, making it the third snowiest winter season we have ever had. Keep your feet warm and dry on your trek to class with some solid winter boots.
