Branded USB Flash Drives Communicate to Students

Posted by USB2U on 30th August 2011 | Permalink

As August comes to a close many educational students will be facing the reality of having to return to school and University for another year of learning. For those students starting a new school settling in will be quite easy and hassle free but for those starting new schools it may take a bit more time, and more help for them to settle in and make the most of their experience.  Students starting University will probably find it the biggest change in lifestyle as they move out of home and have their first taster of the big wide world.

promotional usb sticks printed with university logosAlthough some students clearly embrace going to University with open arms it can be a daunting prospect for a lot of students because it is no longer a place that you attend for 5 to 6 hours a day, it’s a whole lifestyle change.  Students will rely on the University and the surrounding area for pass-times, entertainment and fun.  When students move to large University in an unknown city it can be very hard to know what there is to do in the area and what the University offers.

It can also be hard for the University to advertise to the substantial amount of students that join each year the different programmes, activities, sports, clubs, sororities etc. that are available for the students to get involved in.  Compared to schools, Universities have substantially more students enrol each year but have less personal contact with the students making introductions, briefings and communicating information much harder.  If you work for a University, or even a large organisation and have this problem we have just the solution for you.

We supply many promotional USB flash drives to Universities and educational institutes who use them internally, for open days to attract more students and a number of other ways however, one use of custom USB memory sticks could solve the institutions communication problems.

Along with great services, a solid track record and innovative ideas, we also have a great selection of logo USB flash drives which can be customised to suit each University and occasion.  If the University logo and branding is important then the any of the memory sticks from our classic range would be suitable.  If the size and portability of the flash drive is important then we have a range of small and easily transported USB sticks.  If you just want to make sure that students use it throughout their time at University then we’re sure that a USB Bottle opener would get a lot of use.


Schools Educate in Branded USB Flash Drive Uses

It wouldn’t be a surprise if for many teachers it feels like the kids have only just left for school holidays and for many parents it feels like they broke up for summer ages ago.  Whatever the outlook parents will be buying ‘back to school’ clothing and teachers will be preparing classrooms for the start of another school year.

We supply branded USB memory sticks for a range of educational institutions such as red brick universities, colleges and upper schools to name a few.  Our busiest time for supplying educational institutes with logo USB flash drives is towards the end and at the beginning of the school year.  So in terms of the supplying schools with flash drives we are currently in the eye of the storm – we supplied a lot for the end of the educational year and are preparing for the rush for the start of the year.

We recently supplied a job to a school that was giving the flash drives out to pupils who attended the school.  They asked for the promotional USB memory sticks in a range of seven different colours, each year group was given a different colour of flash drive and the teachers were given a separate colour to the students.  This, we’re sure, had quite a few benefits specific to schools.  It could be seen from the colour of the flash drive what year the student was in at the school (this would be particularly handy in a large school), it would prevent flash drives being stolen between years and ‘the dog ate my homework’ was a little less believable now that most of it is done digitally.

In addition to the range of coloured memory sticks we also supplied the flash drives with white stickers on one side for the student to write their name on.  This not only made it more unique for the pupils but also made it much easier to return the flash drive to the student who misplaces it.

As the use of computers and Information Technology grows within schools uses for custom USB flash drives will possibly go from being used for students transferring files from home to school to storing their whole years work on them (with a back-up, obviously) and teachers saving homework on them for students to take home and complete.
