Travel Checklist for Summer Campus Tours

dog with sunglasses and hatPacking for a summer campus tour?¬†What’s on your travel checklist?

Don’t forget to bring:

  • Sun Glasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Water Bottle
  • Hat

Wait! I know what you’re thinking…same as your “take to the beach” list, right? Exactly. Campus tours are usually scheduled between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and they last for at least an hour which means you’ll be walking around campus during the heat of the day.

Come prepared. Protect yourself from the sun with a hat and sunscreen. Stay hydrated and keep as cool as you can, especially once the dog days of summer roll around. Oh, and don’t forget the camera or smart phone–you’ll want it when you run across one of the campus focal points.
