On Campus Marketing at KSU
Housing and Residence Life partners with On Campus Marketing (OCM) to bring parents a unique way to support their student while living on campus. When parents purchase with OCM, they are not only supporting their student but all residential students, since proceeds from all OCM purchases go toward enhancing the on-campus student experience. There are two ways parents can support their student with OCM:
Purchase Linens Before Move-In
Parents can order their student's bed and bath set directly from the OCM website. They have a broad selection of bedding options, including sizes that fit KSU's bed and colors to match your student's preferences. Plus, they ship them right to your door before Move-In. Visit kennesaw.ocm.com to learn more.
Send Care Packages Throughout the Year
OCM provides several care packages options which allow parents to surprise and support their student while they live on campus. When your student has a big test coming up, or a fun holiday is around the corner like Halloween or Valentine's Day, send your student a care package through OCM. You can even include a personalized note of support and encouragement. Care packages are mailed directly through Campus Postal Services, and your student will be notified via their student email when their package has arrived. This is a GREAT way to support your student all year long.
Shop online for linens and care packages options at kennesaw.ocm.com.
If you have any questions or concerns about your student’s care packages, please contact OCM directly by calling them at 866-847-7365, emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org, or chatting with a customer service representative Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 5:30 PM (EST) on their homepage, kennesaw.ocm.com.
