Take for example our classic satchel bags: we know you need a bag that’s sturdy enough to hold your laptop, notebooks, and whatever else you need to stuff inside, but which is still stylish enough for post-lecture socialising. Our bags do just that (and more).

We love that back-to-school feeling, and know how special those first days of university life are.

For our Founder, Julie Deane, her first memories of Cambridge University (where she studied), stem from her admissions interview even before she arrived as a student.

“When I went for my interview, I was struck by the level of personalisation that went along with being a student at Cambridge. For example, above every student’s room there is a sign that has been hand-painted with their name. When I learnt I was accepted, that was the very first thing to spring to my mind; my name was going to be painted on a sign that would be hanging above a door waiting for me to arrive.

“When I eventually arrived in Cambridge (from South Wales where I grew up), I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by the beauty of the buildings at Cambridge; the grand architecture of the buildings and the decoration of the rooms was something I had never come across before and which has stayed with me ever since.”

The Competition:

We love that back-to-school feeling and those special university memories, so we want to know what makes your university or college experience special to you. Tell us a story via social media that makes us laugh, smile, feel inspired, or wish we were there. We’ll reward one winner and two runners-up with an amazing prize to help you make the best first impression on campus.

To coincide with the competition, we are also offering all students 20% off online and in-store from the 18th September to the 8th October. Don’t forget that once the competition is over, students can still take advantage of a 10% discount year-round. 

To Enter:

Post a picture and caption to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook which encapsulates your university experience. Whether that’s a gorgeous shot of your favourite building or place on campus, strange or funny traditions unique to your college or university, how you’re making your dorm room your own, or a story about your experiences in your first week as a student, we want to know what university life means to you.

The winners will be those who make us laugh, smile, feel inspired, or wish we were there.

Be sure to follow and tag us @CamSatchelCo and use the hashtag #CSCcampus so that we can spot your entry.

The competition is open from the 18th September until midnight (GMT) on the 8th October. Winners will be chosen by our Founder and CEO, Julie Deane, and will be notified within a month of competition ending.
