Top 6 UM Beach Essentials

Beach Day

The University of Mobile is only an hour away from world-famous beaches. Many students take advantage of UM’s 4-day academic week to spend time with friends in the waves and sand. There are a few essential items each person needs when heading to the beach, though. Luckily, The University of Mobile Store, The U, has whatever you might need to represent your favorite school while spending time at your favorite place.

  1. Legacy UM Cap 

Having a hat on the beach is a must. Having something to cover your face can be a lifesaver when the sun is beating down. You can block the sun and represent your school at the same time with this cap. 

  1. UM Beach Towel 

One of the most essential items for the beach is a towel. It gives you a way to get away from the sand and dry off after spending some time in the waves. This UM beach towel is the perfect tool for both jobs.

  1. UM Tank Top 

Blue skies and good vibes are all you’re looking for by the ocean. This tank top is the perfect way to show off your school spirit while you work on your tan. 

  1. UM Tumbler 

Everyone has made the mistake of going to the beach without anything to drink. You get really hot from the sun or get salt water in your mouth from the ocean, and all you want is a cold drink. Keep things cold for 10+ hours in this tumbler so you can stay on the beach as long as you want.

  1. UM Summer Tee 

Nothing says the beach like a van with surfboards on the roof. Show your island spirit and your school spirit at the same time with this UM t-shirt.

  1. Rockaway Canvas Beach Tote 

You can’t take all your beach essentials with you unless you have a bag to carry them. This UM bag with the Mobile skyline is the perfect bag for that. Show off your school pride with a much-needed tote for all you’re carrying to the beach.

 It’s hard to beat a fun, sunny day at the beach. Whether you’re working on your tan, catching some waves or building a sandcastle, these six items are the perfect fit for your perfect beach day.
