Check the weather before you come. While the days may be warm, once the sun sets you’ll wish you brought that sweatshirt.

Rain check. Summer is the start of monsoon season so an umbrella and/or rain jacket will definitely come in handy. Trust us, you don’t want to get caught in a downpour.

Shoes

You’ll be walking all over campus so make sure to bring comfortable shoes that can take you from campus walking paths to nearby trails if you so choose.

Did we mention the Flagstaff Urban Trail System (or FUTS as it’s known around here) connects right on campus.

Stay hydrated

We’re at 7,000 feet. Up your H20 intake to avoid altitude sickness. And don’t forget sun screen! Higher elevation = closer to the ☀️.
