What College Students Really Want In Care Packages

There is nothing better than checking your phone and receiving that unexpected text message from your campus mail room, saying you have received a package. Our parents, siblings, and relatives usually try their hardest to put together the best care package, but sometimes stray from what we actually want. Here are 8 things college students really want in care packages:

1. Comfort food

When you're up until all hours studying or stressing, all any college student wants is their favorite snack.

2. Healthy food

As much as I love junk food, it gets old after constantly eating it. It's hard to eat healthy in college and I would much rather bring a granola bar to class than a bag of chips.

3. Tea/hot chocolate

A hot drink before bed is enough to remind you of home!

4. Gift cards

Gift cards keep you from spending money on things you don't need and give you a reason to treat yourself.

5. Socks

After doing a couple loads of laundry at college, you will probably have half of the socks you started with. Bonus points if you send your college student fuzzy socks during winter.

6. Cold medicine

Stress and sleep deprivation have a way of impairing your immune system, making most college students get sick.

7. Fuzzy blanket

Sleeping in a dorm room during a snowstorm is almost equivalent to sleeping outside. Any college student would love another blanket, especially if it smells like home.

8. ChapStick

Because who can actually keep track of their ChapStick until it runs out?

No matter what you send, you really can't go wrong with a care package.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
