Finals Week Survival Kits

The gift of a Finals Week Survival Kit will help your AU student finish strong!

During the 2021-22 school year, the Augustana University Council for Exceptional Children (AU CEC) offered the opportunity to purchase Finals Week Survival Kits, as they have done for more than 20 years.

Finals Week Survival Kit(s) were available for pickup on the last day of class. Recipients were notified of when and where to pick up their Finals Week Survival Kits. The kits included a personal note from the purchaser.

HEALTH CONCERNS? If your student has a health concern (diabetes, allergies, etc.), Survival Kits will be adapted to meet the student’s needs. Modifications should be noted when you place your order.

PARENTS, semester finals can be tough—give your student encouragement for the week. Consider purchasing Survival Kits for your child, as well as your child’s roommate or friend!  If you would like to treat an International Student that we select for you, you may indicate this on the online form. You can add your personal note.

AU STUDENTS, help your roomies and friends survive! Order a Survival Kit to let them know you’re thinking of them! Survival Kit prices start at $15.

While supporting your AU student, you are also supporting AU CEC, an organization that develops awareness and understanding of children and adults with disabilities. Funds raised go toward serving local individuals with disabilities (one example is a spring dance at Augustana for teens with disabilities) and supporting AU CEC members to attend national conferences in special education.
