The transition to college is not only a new experience for the student going away, but can often times be challenging for the entire family.  Sending a student to college can be both exciting and stressful for all involved. Your student will need family support in order to make their transition into the WSU residential life experience a successful one.

Welcome to Campus Care Package Program
The Wichita State Residence Life Department is sponsoring and distributing Welcome to Campus Care Packages for our incoming students. Students will receive their packages approximately 10 days after arriving on campus, just when the “newness” of campus living has worn off a bit, and perhaps some homesickness has set in. Order one of these delicious and sustaining packages at https://www.swaku.com/wichita.

Deadline to order is August 15th, but order today as the more popular packages may run out!
On our store you can also order one of our multi-package plans like our Grand Slam and set them up with great care packages for the entire school year.  Our Grand Slam plan includes packages for Welcome, Halloween, Fall Finals and Spring Finals.

*If a package is visible on the website at the time of ordering, the package is still available to be ordered.*
*Your purchase supports many of our Department’s initiatives, which in turn positively impact our on campus populations, we thank you.*
