Leave messages for your roomie, work out a tough physics problem or plan out your semester with this 3-in-1 chalkboard shelf calendar from Urban Outfitters. Made from reclaimed wood and recycled metal, it’ll help you practice your French too since that’s the language the names of the months are printed in.
