One of the best pick-me-ups for our students is when they receive a care package from their loved ones at home.
St. Ambrose is now working with Basket Bowtique, a privately owned gift shop in downtown Cedar Rapids. All packages are hand-made, individually wrapped and personally delivered to campus.
You can purchase the packages individually, or purchase the "Ambrose Plan" (which includes all five packages) for a discounted price of $99. Order forms will be available at First Year orientations; mailed home the beginning of June; and are also available to download (.docx). You can also order online at the link below. For more information please contact the Residence Life office, 563-333-6258.
The Move-In Pack comes in a re-usable hard-plastic container that is perfect for storing various odds and ends. In addition to energy-inducing snacks and drinks, this pack comes with everything below and some other essentials, like a deck of playing cards!
The Halloween Pack serves as a reminder of the fall season, with favorites such as apple juice and cider. Those traditional items, balanced with a combination of Halloween treats and healthy snacks like pretzels, create a well-rounded approach to get your son or daughter through fall midterms. The package comes in a clear bag, decorated with Halloween tissue paper to give it a spook-tacular appearance!
The Fall Finals Pack is a stress-busting favorite that arrives in a popcorn bucket tied with Ambrose colors. As the tension and anxiety of finals creeps in, students will be able to kick back with some comfort food to relieve that stress - and maybe use the packaging to enjoy a movie or two!
The Valentine's Pack, packaged in a red box with a big Valentine's ribbon as a reminder of your love, shows your student that you're thinking of them when they're away at school. Although the weather outside might be cold, you're going to warm your student up with some cocoa and "red hot" cinnamon candies
The Spring Finals Pack comes in a blue or white canvas bag, to complement SAU's colors. Full of recharging treats and drinks, this pack is sure to keep your student's energy level up for all those late nights of reviewing and cramming!
