Five Fall Campus Essentials for Slippery Rock University

By Kaitlyn Casilli & Alaina Titchen

Slippery Rock University is located in Western Pennsylvania, about forty-five minutes from Pittsburgh. It is known to get very cold here around this time of year, so this blog will provide what we think are the five best campus essentials for this fall season!

1. Parka Winter Jacket

A parka is sure to keep you warm and shield you from any cold winds. We recommend getting a water-resistant one to protect you on rainy days, as well. A parka is longer than most coats, so it will keep a larger portion of your body protected.

This parka is from Target and is currently on sale right now for $64.99!

2. Hunter Chelsea Rain boots

The second item that we recommend is boots. The ones we have linked come in a variety of colors and are sustainably made with natural rubber as well as FSC-certified rubber. These boots are waterproof and are good to wear for all types of weather conditions.

These boots are currently on sale at Nordstrom for $79.97!

3. Lotion

We all know how dry our skin can get during the colder weather months. You need a lotion that will keep your skin moisturized all day long. We have provided a link for a lotion that is clean, does not test on animals, and is sustainable.

When you buy this lotion that we have linked from Lush, the company donates 100% of the profits to small grassroots organizations working in the areas of human rights, animal protection, and environmental justice.

4. Beanie

Another cozy essential is a beanie to keep your ears and head warm. There are so many different beanies you can find at any store but the one we have linked is a sustainable beanie option from Carhartt.

This Carhartt beanie comes in a variety of colors and is a more sustainable option for your wardrobe. This beanie is also listed at $19.99!

5. Chapstick

Along with our hands being dry during the colder months, our lips are another thing to keep moisturized this time of year.

This chapstick that we have linked is from Amazon and is plastic-free, vegan, cruelty-free, and eco-friendly. It is also 20% off right now and is listed for $9.99!
