Although this year has been somewhat different with many starting college in an online format, many others are starting to check into dorms and campus life again.

Here are some ways to make your college student feel like home is always there:

Care Box

At one time, you couldn’t get your teenager to go get the mail. But, now, they most likely check each day for something from home. Send them a care box with some items they love, including some sweet treats and munchies for their dorm room.

Flowers and Plants

Flowers and plants make a nice gift that will brighten their dorm room or apartment. Your favorite Tucson flower shop can help with petite-sized options that fit smaller quarters like a dorm desk or bookcase. A plant is also nice to send because it lasts a long time with little maintenance and makes the dorm room a little bit healthier! Screen Shot 2020-05-17 at 11.23.56 AM


Schedule regular calls or check-in with your college student via FaceTime or video conference service like Zoom. Of course, you can also send them a text, too, but seeing each other on camera sometimes helps with the home sickness.

Weekend Visit

Plan a weekend at your student’s university. Many feature Parent Weekends. Or, you can plan your own to spend time with your student and let them know they are missed. Bring some homemade food that they can reheat or some other goodies.
