Send Some Love

Your student may or may not admit it, but they are probably missing home in some way. Whether you carefully craft your own letter or care package or take advantage of one of our on-campus services, they will appreciate the gesture and will be happy to know you are thinking of them! An encouraging note from loved ones can go a long way, and you will gain bonus points for sending snacks or treats that can be shared with hallmates and friends.
