Care Packages for Students
The Office of Development and Alumni Relations, with the Student Alumni Association, offers care packages twice annually. Letters are sent out in the fall and in the spring to all domestic families regarding the content and cost of these packages. Care packages assembled by the Student Alumni Association feature a variety of food and health products along with a specialty item selected each semester.
