I would take a look at the Mac Book Air
It has up to 12 hours of battery life so it is very good with power management. You should be able to go all day on a single charge for taking notes and working in various places around campus.
8 GB of memory is suitable actually for most everything your going to do.
The 256 GB SSD is going to be fast and good on power management. As well as being able to store all your eText books and assignments.
With this computer you won't be gaming or storing a lot of music, but that's what Spotify is for. But it will be perfect for research, writing papers, social media, watching YouTube (streaming video does use more power BTW).
With proper care of your device there is no reason why it should not last you through college
