I think a dude or dudette returning to school must have

1) A small notebook. 
Purpose:  To serve as a 'planning' book of sorts to help prepare for the new semester. Things to include should be 'do's and don'ts'. For example, "Listen to the key terms" could be a 'do'. 
The book could also serve as a reminder of sorts for assignments, projects and of course the big one. SCHOLARSHIPS.

2) Highlighter or different colored pens or pencils.
Purpose: For intensive studying of those chemical reactions, social/history terms and even the biology processes and words some fear. Just color code it all. It helps with organisation. 
And glancing at your notes you can easily know what the most important topic is by looking at the color assigned to importance. Or you could just highlight. Both ways work. But I prefer this method to using flashcards.

3) A laptop.
Purpose: Even if you are the hand-writer like I am, you will definitely need a laptop. Assignments, projects or even writing a lengthy response to a Yconic question, they all have just one thing in common. You guessed it. A laptop. Especially for the lengthy part... You don't have to wait for your siblings to be done using the family laptop. So many advantages, so little fault. A laptop it is.
