    My best recommendation for weight lifting equipment would be to get a pair of
    Flat-soled shoes with no heel lift - try the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star (~$40)
    The reason being that they improve your performance and prevent injury because they are stable and keep your body in better alignment throughout the lifts. To reiterate, this is my strongest recommendation for a worthwhile investment for weight lifting equipment.

    Other items I could think of (that are actually helpful)
    1. Lifting Chalk (~$8) - Chalk might be a bit too "hardcore" when just starting out, but it's definitely very helpful for grip when you get stronger, especially on deadlifts or heavy shrugs. They help building grip strength, whereas weight lifting gloves (see below) tend to impede on that. Look into "liquid" chalk, which is less messy and almost as effective.
    2. Weight Lifting Gloves (~$15) - Personally I recommend skipping these when you're first starting out, because you'll get used to it better; but get a pair if you really don't want to develop any callouses.
    3. Athletic Shorts & T-Shirts ($cheap) - This is probably obvious to you, but you'll need a pair of cheap athletic shorts and some t-shirts that you can move around in easily. Have like 3+ pair each so you don't have to do laundry every day.
    4. Sweat Bands ($3) - If you tend to sweat like a pig, you might want to get some sweat bands to prevent sweat from dripping into your eyes. You could also use a do-rag or a hat; although hats will make you a lot warmer.
    5. Shaker or Water Bottle (~$5) - You might want to invest in a shaker bottle. Shaker bottles can be used for mixing post-workout shakes (protein and carbs), as well as simply for holding water.

    That about wraps up my list of ideas. Obviously the your weight lifting class provides the bare essentials equipment (bars, dumbbells, weights, racks, etc). And I'll assume that it has the other equipment like weight belts, pull-up/dipping belts (if not you might want to look into these two pieces of equipment if you're serious about getting into weight lifting).
    Hopefully that helps you out. Good luck in you class this semester
    P.S. I'm pretty sure that you weren't talking about supplements when using the term "items," but if you were feel free to visit the supplement section on my new-ish weight lifting website, [link] - It's hype-free info IF you indeed were inquiring about supplements (unfortunately though, I don't have a section on my site for weight lifting equipment yet).
