  • Loose-leaf notebook paper (wide-ruled)
  • Two boxes of pencils
  • Ink pens
  • Two or three large erasers
  • A package of pencil-cap erasers

  • A box of small safety pins
  • Stapler and staples
  • A box of facial tissues
  • Permanent markers
  • A K-State cup or something to hold pencils on your desk
  • A box of sandwich-sized plastic bags that seal
  • A package of disposable wipes
