Notepads for each subject youl be taking
folders to keep notes and handoouts of each subject
painkillers that you always keep in your backpack because if you really dont want a headache ruining your classes.
a diary to write down important test dates and assignments due dates (or a calender you hand on your wall)
a calculator; this kinda depends on the subjects your taking. but having one around is always useful.
a backpack, seems obvious, but trust me, carrying around books the whole day is no fun!
an ipad to access any online materials during class, but this one is really optional. i find it handy to have one anyway.
ruler (probably a short one)
i dont know what their called but their those page markers that come in different colors. or alternatively, posti notes.
A USB STICK! this is a lifesaver, keep it on your keychain at all times with your student ID
a very reliable computer that includes the full microsoft office suite on it, wifi access and probably bluetooth
thats all i can think of now. the rest you have i think.

You've got to start writing day-to-day journals, write and write. Don't worry about how bad it is, but try to write a lot. If you do this, when the professor asks you something like "Why are you in this class?" (that's a typical question), you'll be able to articulate an answer. Oh and fyi, I defeated my professor when we had a bout of argument regarding that same question. =)
