The school year has started up once again! For some, this year marks the beginning of their college years – arguably some of the best years of life – while others are ending their collegiate journey.
Whether your student is coming or going it is an emotional and exciting time. In the past, the Alumni office has offered loved ones the opportunity to purchase care packages, or as we call them, Study Buddies, to offer encouragement during finals. Finals week is December 8-12, 2014.
The Study Buddy is a care package complete with delicious treats and study tools that will help your university student relieve stress during late night studying. Sending a Study Buddy to your student(s) lets them know you are thinking of them, and introduces them to the Alumni Association that they will some day be part of. We can’t wait to welcome them!
Study Buddies will be delivered the week before finals and will contain plenty of the following items: ● Chocolates ● Candy ●Cheese and Crackers● Trail Mix ● Popcorn ● Granola Bars● Hot Chocolate ● Apple Cider ● Fresh Baked Brownies● Potato Chips ● Fresh Baked Cookies ● Made in Rockford Items● Fresh Rice Krispie© Treats ● Juice boxes ● RU Pen & Notepad● Sugarless Gum ● Energy Drink ● Post-It Notes
We will be sending a reminder letter to you near the end of the semester, but you may purchase your student a Study Buddy today! Study Buddy’s are only $25.
