I prefer to study in the library, so I don't anticipate bringing books home except maybe on the weekends. I'm planning on taking yoga classes and swimming a few times a week on campus, so I need something that can house a laptop, workout clothes, and shower stuff/quick dry towel that isn't going to kill my shoulder by the end of the day if it's a shoulder bag instead of a backpack. I'll have a good 20 minute walk both ways each day.
Thanks. Any and all suggestions are much appreciated!
Try searching on Amazon for computer backpacks. They have a pretty nice selection of structured and more 'professional' looking backpacks than you see typically in stores. I would suggest sticking to a backpack versus a tote for you, since you seem to be planning on having a lot of stuff to carry. I wanted a tote originally, because I haven't used a backpack since middle school, but just didn't find any to be as useful or easy to carry as the backpacks I saw.
The only tote that came close was perhaps the Lo and Sons OMG, but that's too pricey even for me haha.
