Students as School Supplies

Survey Question: If you were a school supply, what would you be and why?

School is right around the corner, so you can bet your pennies on seeing multiple sections of department stores loaded with discount school supplies. You dread to hold those awful papers – most likely empty – that you will have to submit to the teachers once you step foot on campus on the first day of school. Yet your heart pounds with excitement as you hold four-packs of gel pens, notebooks, and pencils and throw them gleefully into your shopping cart. Back-to-school shopping is a splendid way to save oodles of money and to comfort yourself over summer being over. Never fear, you still have a moment to procrastinate productively and ponder which school supply represents you best. Here is what some of our fellow schoolmates have to say.
