A pen and paper The day will be packed with lots of information; you may find it helpful to take notes.
A copy of your Dog Days Confirmation email This is not necessary to bring, but may come in handy during the check-in process in the morning.
Immunization Records

The CSU system requires students to show proof of the immunizations for Hepatitis B, and Measles & Rubella. Proof of immunizations can be given to the Health Center during orientation or sent over before the end of your first year.

If you cannot locate your immunization record students can take a free test at the Student Health and Counseling Center to determine what immunizations they have received. 

A sweater or sweatshirt It may be 100 degrees outside, but some of our classrooms and buildings tend to be on the colder side.
Any other correspondence from the university that may aid in answering questions If you have any other business to take care of with other offices on campus, you may want to bring the materials necessary to have those questions answered. You will have time throughout the day to visit other offices and get questions answered.
