20 years ago today, I was starting my first day as a college freshman! My parents dropped me off in Santa Cruz, California at my college where I didn’t know ANYONE. I will never forget that first weekend — Labor Day –most of the kids at my school went back home for the extended weekend, but since my home was a 12 hour drive away, I stayed alone in the dorms.

When I went to college, the internet was just becoming a thing. I visited my first official webpage in the fall of 1995! I used a daily email to keep in touch with my mom and let her know what I was up to.

The email lifeline became very important to me, with my family living so far away! Of course, I made friends at college, but I always looked forward to hearing from family, whether via email or traditional mail.

One of the things I remember most fondly from my time at college was receiving care packages from home! My parents sent me some essentials (and treats), each adorned with a post-it note of encouragement. Never underestimate the power of a care package!

The best care packages strike a balance of much-needed supplies (like razors, soap, etc.) and treats (like candy and a little extra spending money).

With that in mind, I’m here to help you create the perfect college care package. You can find goodies at your local dollar store (like Dollar General) and drug store (like Rite Aid).

What to include in a college care package:

  • Schick Quattro Razor
  • Schick Quattro Refills
  • Student’s favorite candy bars
  • A box of tea or instant coffee
  • Extra bar of soap
  • Toothpaste and a new toothbrush
  • A $20 bill
  • And of course, a heartfelt note from you!

There are a lot of different razors in the Schick family to choose from — make sure your college student can get a good shave!
