Cakes & Goodies

An easy way to send a care package!

The Advancement Office and Student Alumni Association offer an easy way to send balloons, birthday cakes or large cookies to your student to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion. 

Cakes and Cookies

Our cakes and cookies are made here on campus by our bakers at Sodexo, the campus food service provider. 

When ordering a cake you are able to choose a chocolate or yellow cake and either chocolate or white frosting. 

A cookie order consists of a giant chocolate chip cookie with maroon and cream colored decorative icing. 

You are able to request a message be placed on the cake or cookie (e.g. Happy Birthday) and an additional printed message to accompany the cake, cookie, or balloons so your student knows who the gift is from. 

Balloons

You can also elect to send a balloon bouquet either separately or in addition to a cake/cookie. The balloon bouquet can be tailored to suit the occasion by adding a special message mylar balloon (e.g. happy birthday, congratulations, etc.). 

Placing an Order

Simply complete the online order form at least three full business days prior to the desired delivery date and the gifts will be personally delivered to your student!

Sample FormThe first screen on the online order form will look like the image to the left.  The “Payment Type” drop down menu is the only one you need to select from.
