Fun Curated Surprise for College Students

Co-Ed Supply

For parents whose sons or daughters are away from home, it’s hard not to constantly wonder if they’re keeping warm, eating healthy, or keeping up with their hygiene. What’s even more difficult is not being able to be there for them when they need you the most.

With Co-Ed Supply, a care package shows up at their door every month (starting at less than $20 per month), filled to the brim with awesome college essentials that span from entertainment products to new healthy snacks and everyday necessities. It’s the gift that keeps on giving and the perfect surprise each month to help them get through the rough college years.

Curated Surprise for College Students

Founded by Andy Fortson and Marissa Hu, Co-Ed Supply is as an alternative and coveted care package that is inexpensive and filled with practical items and health-conscious brands. Co-Ed Supply curates items that are in touch with the students’ needs and wants -- not products dictated by a superficial market study that approximates them by demographics.

Co-Ed Supply was founded when Andy was looking for care package options to send to his cousin who was heading off to college and his little brother who joined the Marines. Having been appalled by the options available, Andy and co-founder Marissa Hu set out to create college care packages that make the lives of college students easier and happier by delivering essentials from leading brands. In the four months since launch, Co-Ed Supply is already shipping to various universities in all 50 states and has partnered with Nature’s Bakery, Procter & Gamble, Dollar Shave Club, Hello Products, Cover Girl and Epic Records.
