Care Packages for Students


Due to the campus COVID-19 closure, winter final exam care packages will be held and delivered to students once campus reopens. If you have any questions, please reach out to OCM at

Parents entrust their students to the university in hopes their student will feel a part of the campus. We want you to know we are just as invested in providing your student with a strong sense of support.

Students at the Residence Hall

To welcome first-year students, the Student Alumni Association (SAA) hosts an annual “Welcome to Campus” event in which each incoming freshman, living in the residence halls receives a care package, absolutely free!

To ensure your student receives their “Off to College Care Package” complete and return a reply form and personalized message card to the address below.

Once students are settled, we encourage families to stay connected. Let your student know you are thinking of them on their birthday, during the holidays, or while they prepare for exams. Show your support with a care package; options include baked goods, snacks, stuffed animals, and healthier choices as well.

The care package program assists SAA in raising funds for our educational, social, and recreational activities we sponsor on campus.
