We strongly recommend that every student has a fan — box fans or oscillating fans are best. • Linens are not provided unless requested via the EXPLO student application ahead of the summer. Students are responsible for laundering their own linens. Phones and Computers: Mobile/Cell Phones — If you choose to bring a mobile phone to the program, please be advised that you may not use it during courses, activities, check-ins, meals, or other scheduled program events, unless specifically invited to do so by EXPLO staff. Personal Computers — Students are encouraged to bring a personal computer, though it is not a requirement. Most students find a computer helpful for class and projects, and EXPLO has a limited number of computers available for student use. Students bringing laptops or tablets to the program are strongly encouraged to keep electronics on their person or in their locked dorm rooms. Any student using a personal computer to access the internet while enrolled in the program is trusted to use this resource wisely and will be held responsible for connection to objectionable sites and all other online conduct. EXPLO is not responsible for lost or stolen laptops, tablets, mobile phones, smart watches/personal devices, or other expensive electronics. Additional Notes: •
