Students work on a group project in Lourdes hall.


We recognize families play an important role in the success of their students. The resources on this page will help you to assist your student in their transition to college life.

Support Your Student from Home

There are several ways you can support your student from home. Each year, the Residence Housing Association (RHA) sells support boxes as a fundraiser. Support boxes are a great way for families to let their student know they are loved and supported during various times throughout the year.

Welcome Packages are sponsored through On-Campus Marketing and are delivered to the student on their first day of classes. Finals Support Packages are offered during fall and spring semester finals week, which include items such as:

  • Popcorn
  • Ramen Noodles
  • Granola Bars
  • Hot Chocolate

Parents can also write a short note of encouragement to their student to show their support.

Support boxes cost approximately $10.

Letters are sent to parents during the summer for Welcome Packages and during the fall and spring semesters for Finals Support Packages.

For more information or if you have any questions, contact the Winona State University RHA office (507.457.5584).
