Care Packages

If your son or daughter lives in one of the four dorm communities (College Park, Northwestern Park, Racers Village, or Sherwood Park), you can send a little love from home through our Care Package program offered at the University of Northwestern Ohio!

One of the ways to provide positive reinforcement from home is through the "Welcome Care Package" event which is offered each year to parents of students who are residing on campus. Your personal handwritten note comes with each Care Package, so you can send messages of optimism and support.

If your son or daughter is scheduled to live in on-campus housing you will receive a mailing about the care packages at least one month prior to the start of classes each Fall. The letter will contain a list of all the packages available, an order form, and a card to write a personal message on.

Some examples of packages are:

The Welcome Package- arrives just after school begins, loaded with energy boosting snacks and easy meal substitutions for late wake-ups or working through lunch or dinner. Whit over 30 munchies from Kraft Easy Mac & Cheese and Kellogg’s Pop Tarts, to ACT II Microwave Popcorn and Nabisco Chips Ahoy, your student will be prepared for almost any stomach-grumbling emergency.

The Trick or Treater- arrives for Halloween loaded with popular Halloween candy like Snickers, Hershey’s Kit Kat Bar, Doritos Nacho Cheese and more. This is also near midterms, so this package will be doubly appreciated.

The Valentine Surprise- will boost your student with a heart-shaped box of chocolates, Welch’s Fruit Snacks, Frito Cheetos Crunch, a fun box of those tiny Conversation Hearts and lots more; it’s a fun reminder of your love.

The Out of the Blue Care Package- arrives when its least expected. With more than two dozen student favorites like Quaker Chewy Granola Bar, M&M’s, Nabisco Keebler Gripz Cinnamon, Golden Oreo Cookies and more, this surprise package practically guarantees a thank you call. Out of the Blue Packs show up for no special reason except to show your love. Yours will arrive during the first two terms, not near other deliveries!

The Fall Finals Survival Package- offers your student over 30 study snacks like Nutella Hazelnut Spread, Ritz Bits Sandwiches, and Chex Mix, plus a comforting assortment of gourmet teas and Swiss Miss hot cocoas plus Maxwell House coffees, all with reusable thermal mug. Enough to last all through finals.

The Move-in Mug- includes a generous mixture of Maxwell House coffees, teas, Swiss Miss hot cocoas and cold drinks designed to keep students alert during long nights with the books. With its bowl-sized mug, it’s a tasty companion to the Welcome Package.
