A little context…

Pens
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:
Micron Pens
Blackwing Pencils
Staedtler Lumograph Pencils
Good Old Sharpies
PaperMate Flair
Erasers

Sketchbooks

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.
Basic Black
Moleskine
Rhodia
MUJI

Other Supplies

A Good Knife
Don’t forget the Blades
A Three Button Mouse

Mugs

Bring your favorite mug from home to enjoy while getting that caffeine fix. You’ll need it.

Water Bottles
Our sustainability committee is dedicated to cutting down on on the waste produced at ID, but that’s no reason to not stay hydrated.

Snacks
Projects with your teamates always go better when no one is feeling hunger pangs. Snacks of all sorts are stashed in desks at ID.

Snow Boots
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.
