    I've decided to go to college next year (I'm asking way in advance, I know), and I was wondering what I should bring on the first day. I'm taking Psychology, Sociology, Business studies and Biology.

    - Should I take a pencil case, or will that looks to keen and childish? If I should, what should be in there?
    - Do I need to take ring binders or will I be able to get away with just writing all of my notes in a notebook and sorting it all out at home?
    - Will a Vans backpack be big enough or too big?
    - What other things should I take?

    I feel you! I was like this when I first went to college and I hadn't a clue. Yes, bring a pencil case. You'll need a pen or a highlighter at least, so best to bring it. Don't bring all your folders on the first day, just bring one little plastic folder to put any paper in. You probably won't learn anything first day, you'll just get intro packs and meet teachers so you won't need all your equipment. I'm an AS that takes 4 subjects and my vans backpack fits everything perfectly, I had a kanken but it was too small. My backpack now fits 2 a4 files, a refill pad and a few plastic folders so it's quite a good a choice. Hope this helped !
