Nothing like unwrapping a shiny new multi-meter on Christmas day.

Specifically, this is a Mastech model MS8268. It is relatively inexpensive (about $30) and fairly accurate, although it is a bit slow. (The usual speed / accuracy tradeoff in lower-cost tools.) And I like the green color. It will replace a recently deceased meter. It would be a good choice for a student, if you are looking to pump up your "tech cred". You can carry it around in your backpack, and people will know not to mess with you. (The sharp probes make good weapons!)
