"Mom, Dad, I Don't Want to Go Back"Deborah Porter
Campuses across the country are starting to bustle with eager students anticipating what the semester ahead will bring. It may include running for student government, starting a new club, or choosing the perfect major.
Our daughters and sons have a lot of decisions to make this year, and learning how to navigate this new life phase isn’t always easy.
With what can seem like the weight of the world on their shoulders, they need our encouragement more than ever. How do we show our love and support long distance? Care packages are a great way, and students love them, but we all know it can be challenging to find the time to shop (or bake) for a truly good one. That's why we were so happy to discover Freshman Fun Box.
Every Freshman Fun Box overflows with unique and delicious college survival essentials. What’s inside? Part of the fun is that you never know exactly what you're going to get. Freshman Fun Box selects top-shelf brands and niche items — useful things your student may not even realize they want and need. Boxes are tailored to the season and include food, something to wear, school supplies, personal care items, life skill training tools, and other goodies guaranteed to brighten your student's day.
The Freshman Fun Box Mission: To help students survive and thrive, one box at a time.
One more thing to love about the Boxes: You get to choose a color to correlate with a mood-based theme. Pink is playful and charming, while dark blue represents confidence and intelligence, or you can pick green for energy. Which Fun Box fits your kid the best?
College can be stressful. The gift of a Freshman Fun Box is a wonderful surprise that reminds your child that you're still there rooting for them.
Shipments are available for a one-time order, month-to-month, or all year round, including the summer. There's a Birthday Box, too. Simply sign up and Freshman Fun Box will take care of the rest.
Freshman Fun Box gives back: A portion of the proceeds from every box purchased is donated to students in need.
College move-in is approaching! Help your student prepare by making sure they have everything they need for a successful freshman year.
