Send your student a care package

Whether your student is away from home for the first time or they returned to Mason for another year, it is always a welcome surprise to receive a gift from home. There are multiple ways to stay connected to your student, including sending them a care package!

We are excited to partner with Campus Survival Kits¬†again this year to offer you top-quality, Mason-themed care packages delivered directly to your student. You may choose from multiple kits that include a hand-packed selection of snacks, a personalized, handwritten note to your student, and topped with green and gold packing material. Kits are delivered to your student’s on-campus mailbox or off-campus housing in 24-48 hours (Monday-Friday).

Additionally, Campus Survival Kits is offers subscription plans to ensure that your student is set for the entire year. Care packages are sent out on pre-determined dates and arrive directly to your student. To view the pricing and delivery options offered by Campus Survival Kits, visit their website at
