Care Packages

It's always nice to know that someone is "Thinking of You."

How do you let your college student know that you're thinking of them? A long distance telephone call is nice, and a letter is thoughtful, but Oberlin College offers another alternative that is sure to be appreciated.

Our "Thinking of You" Program lets you surprise your student with a gift that will brighten his or her day and lighten the hungry, late-night study sessions.

The "Thinking of You" Program can meet most everyone's needs, as we provide vegetarian and vegan options. Simply indicate your preference and we will do the rest!
