Your Alma-Ready Holiday Wishlist

Editor’s note: This blog post was written by Jerrica M., a student at Alma College who works in the Admissions office.

The holiday season is the perfect time to get in the Scot spirit.

As a third-year student at Alma, I still remember my first move-in day. Starting college is a huge step, so it’s natural to feel both nervous and excited. But Alma is a tight-knit community, so it’s easy to find your feet here. And now is a great time to get a head start on being college-ready!

As you’re writing your holiday list this year or just doing some year-end shopping, consider adding some college essentials to make your new home cozy all year round.

Alma’s residence life team provides a wealth of resources to help you prepare for life as a Scot. Check out their section of the website to find lists on what to pack (and what to leave behind!), transportation guides and details of some of the core resources you’ll have access to on campus, like the Wilcox Health Center.

Looking for something special to show your Scot pride? Ask for some Alma swag for the holidays — or gift some to your family and friends! You can browse hoodies, sweatshirts, blankets, flags and more on the Alma College bookstore website.

If you haven’t made the commitment yet, it’s a great time to move us off your wishlist and into your future by committing to Alma today. We can’t wait to welcome you to campus in 2023!
