2. Post-It Flags: Coming in six colors, these are the perfect organizational tool to help mark pages or lines or even to arrange in colorful patterns on notebooks.

3. Oxford Ruled Index Cards: As many of us know, index cards are the go-to for everything from names, to dates, to definitions—a staple of the American classroom and a must have for all Penn students. 

4. Inspirational Classroom Posters: It’s 2 a.m. and you’ve just finished a five-hour-long study grind. Your eyes are droopy and your hand aches—you need some artsy inspiration. These posters are for just that.

8. Insertable Plastic Dividers: Binders can quickly get out of hand—rings get bent out of shape, and what were once organized bundles of papers become one ripped mess. With these dividers, you can keep your binders in check.
