What Should I Bring?

The weather can be unpredictable so we urge you to bring layers! It may be hot, so sunscreen or a hat would be good, or it may be cold so a sweatshirt or coat and scarf could be helpful. Sometimes it rains, so think about an umbrella! If you are a current student, bring your Montclair State ID so you can get into the game for free! We also suggest everyone bring some cash in case they want to give back or get something from the University Bookstore.
