German Wikipedia states that "student food" (Studentenfutter; it is "food" - "Futter" - like in animals, not "food" - "Essen" or "food" - "Speise") in the form of a mixture of almonds with raisins has been known since the 17th century. (Then other unsalted nuts and dried fruits were used.) It was a luxury that was not available to the majority of the population because of the high price tag. And then there were many students from rich families and they allowed themselves such food. Moreover, almonds were considered a hangover remedy.

Studentenfutter ... ist eine seit dem 17. Jahrhundert bekannte Bezeichnung für eine Mischung, die ursprünglich aus Rosinen und Mandeln bestand (amygdala cum uvis passis mixta [1]). Später wurde auch anderes Trockenobst und andere ungesalzene Nüsse zugefügt, darunter Cashewkerne, Erdnüsse, Paranüsse, Walnüsse oder Haselnüsse.

Diese „Schleckerey deutscher Gymnasiasten und Burschen“ [2] war durch die Verwendung der damals verhältnismäßig teuren Mandeln eher für finanziell gutgestellte Personenkreise zugänglich, woher die Bezeichnung Studenenten- oderut In Studentenkreisen nahm man an, dass insbesondere die Mandeln gegen einen Alkoholrausch oder Kater wirksam seien. ... https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Studentenfutter

Probably because such a mixture, due to several types of nuts and dried fruits, is rich in natural sources of vitamins and microelements. Plus the glucose from dried fruits is energy for the brain. All this is necessary for an active student body.
