From my very first day as a college student, it seemed like everyone had a tablet or iPad. At the time, I had no idea what they did or why they were necessary but after getting a tab of my own for my nineteenth birthday it’s impossible for me to imagine life without it. Here are a few reasons why you definitely NEED a tablet of some sort in college.
1) It’s tiny- I like to think of tablets as small laptops. They’re also faster. Carrying a tablet instead of a laptop is less of a hassle on your shoulders as well as being more convenient.
2) You can load books on them- this is my favorite part of my tablet. I am able to store both my assigned readings and my novels on one device. Granted this presents problems as I can sometimes be easily distracted but it’s great that I can work and relax with one item.
3) It increases your productivity- the
endless variety of Android apps ensure that I am as productive as I can be. If my to-do lists demand I’m able to read, draft essays and conduct research if I need to.
4) You can watch movies and TV shows- I’ve yet to meet a college student who isn’t obsessed with a show or three. Having a tablet allows you to keep up with your shows whenever you can. Needless to say, I divide my time between college and my Friends.
