What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

It’s hard to believe that we’ve finally entered March -- which means that final exams are about one and a half months away. This may seem like a decently long time, but the reality is finals will approach in seconds. Then before you know it -- another academic year is finished, a new set of graduates enters the next chapter of their lives, and the remaining students move one step closer to graduation. 

Spring final exams are often more difficult than winter for a number of reasons. The nice weather makes it significantly more difficult to concentrate on studying -- the willpower students have to not ditch their work and embrace the coming summer is extremely tough to achieve. The promise of summer also makes it hard not to drop everything and make plans for the coming months. But overall, spring finals are painstaking because students are ready for a break after a long academic year and the only thing standing in the way of their summer freedom is a remaining few exams, papers, and presentations. 

Because of this, they might need a little extra motivation to make it through the end of the semester. It might seem hard to imagine -- but during finals week, breaking your focus to go to the dining hall for a meal or sometimes even showering isn’t an option for some students. Finals week does require almost all of the focus and attention students have to offer, and they will study for multiple hours straight at any given time. 

This is why it’s necessary to have snacks and other food items on hand at their dorm rooms and in their backpacks. Student’s start to survive on these snacks while sometimes only having time for one major meal each day. Brain food is the sustenance of life! Student’s are more than thrilled when they receive a care package during these trying times. It boosts their mood, provides extra motivation, and of course eating all the snacks is a bonus. 

For this finals season, we have created a list of everything you need to include in their spring final exam care package and the ways to make this possible!

  • Ready to Order Care Packages 
  • Create Your Own Care Package 

Ready to Order Care Packages 

There’s nothing better than having your favorite snacks within arms reach -- a care package comes with everything they could want!

Yes -- you read that right, ready to order care packages with no work involved, simply select the one you think they would love the most! There is a wide variety to choose from that covers nearly every price range and comes with different amounts of goodies inside. You can choose between care packages with just snacks, ones with stress buster solutions, and even healthy options. There are care packages designed for certain dietary restrictions such as gluten free, nut free, vegan, and kosher. To break this down even further, there are options to fit your student’s favorite type of snacks -- breakfast, spicy, sweet, nuts, chocolate, cheesy, and even salty. 

The options are endless and almost completely guaranteed to fit your student’s individual needs. Let’s browse a few options: 

Energy Kit 

This ‘Energy Kit’ comes fully loaded with essentials to keep them focused and concentrated. 

Rounding out the top of our list is the economical ‘Energy Kit.’ Priced at a modest $20, this care package includes all of the snacking essentials to keep their brains energized and focused on the task at hand. We love this option because it comes with a great balance of snacks and sweets and there is a time and a place when each is necessary. 

Included in this care package is microwavable popcorn, kettle corn, trail mix and chex mix, veggie chips, pistachios, and Cheez Its. On the sweet side we have cinnamon teddy grahams, rice krispy treats, chocolate chip cookies, M&M’s, Skittles, Twizlers, Airheads, and more! This is more than enough to last them through finals week and will be sure to come in handy during those moments when the dining hall is closed or they don’t have time to walk there!

Power Up Spring Care Package 

Snacks and sweets, PPE, and stress busters -- what more could you want from a finals care package?

In the middle of our list, we have the all encompassing ‘Power Up Spring Care Package,’ which includes everything you could want for final’s week. On the snacks and sweets side -- this package includes Ramen noodle soup, peanut butter crackers, plantain chips, kettle corn, oreos, rice krispy treats, pretzels, poptarts, wheat thins, granola bars, Skittles, Twizlers, Airheads, M&M’s and more! These are more than enough snacks to keep their brains buzzing and active during finals week! 

But let’s talk about the stress buster kit! Eliminating stress during finals week can be a serious challenge. Getting away from the pressure of papers, exams, and presentations can be difficult, but with a commitment to ensuring a good night’s rest, exercise, and time management -- stress can be reduced. The stress buster kit in the care package comes with two stretchy squeeze balls, a bead ball, puzzle cube, fidget spinner and fidget cube, and other items to keep them busy during study breaks. 

Last but not least, if your student needs restocked on PPE (personal protection equipment), this care package has everything they need to stay safe while taking finals. It comes with an extra face mask, alcohol wipes, and hand sanitizer. 

Healthy Spring Survival Pack

‘Healthy Spring Survival Pack’ for students who want a healthy dose of brain motivation.

Our last ready made featured care package is this ‘Healthy Spring Survival Pack.’ It comes complete with all of your student’s favorite healthy snacks that will keep them energized and motivated all finals week. If your student’s idea of self care is healthy eating -- then they will love this care package. 

Self care during finals week is crucial. Like we said earlier, college students are known for cutting out everyday tasks around the time of finals -- things like showering and getting adequate meals. One important bit of information for students in the midst of finals is that taking breaks are necessary and even encouraged. Burnout is a real thing, so don’t become a victim of your own hard work. Other tips for practicing self care during finals week can be found here. 

Back to our healthy care package. This one includes mac and cheese, kettle popped corn chips, fruit snacks, plantain chips, wheat thins, ChickPea puffs, bunny grahams and more! This care package comes complete with healthy energy -- snacks that won’t weigh them down but will leave them feeling motivated and ready to go! 

Did we mention each care package comes with the option to send a personalized greeting card? At checkout, you can write a 50-75 word message to fill them with encouragement, support, and that necessary motivation boost that will push them through to the end!

Create Your Own Care Package

Create a care package specifically for them to love and enjoy filled with their most favorite snacks and treats. 

If the ready made care packages don’t suit your fancy, or you would rather individually select the items in your student’s package -- you’re in luck! There is an option to customize and create your own care package. This three step process is incredibly simple and will only take a matter of minutes. 

With three box sizes to choose from, you can pick the box that’s perfect for your budget. During the item selection process, you can upgrade or downgrade the size of the box at any time. Once your box is full, a pop up will notify you! 

Since this is finals week -- we recommend browsing the school supplies section. They might need a small restock of these items, you can choose between blue and black pens, a highlighter, pencils, and flashcards. During finals week, these just might come in handy! However, there are unlimited snack and candy options to choose from -- and if they have an unmatched love for fruit snacks, you can add as many to the box as you want! 

Once the box is full, the second step is filling out the personalized note card. All you have to do is select the occasion for sending the box, select the greeting card image, and type your message! If you’re wondering, finals is an option for the card occasion and there are a variety of sweet and funny images pertaining to finals! 

After the greeting card is looking adorable and filled out with sweet words of encouragement, all that’s left is to end the package. This process follows standard online checkout procedures for all retailers. Keep in mind that you’ll need their school address because the care package will be delivered right to campus. Then after a few days, once the care package arrives they will be grinning from ear to ear and appreciate the effort that went into creating it! 
Finals is an extremely intense and stressful time. Anything you can do to make this more bearable for them will be greatly appreciated -- and when they are wishing for an extra snack in the middle of studying, the care package will be there to help them out! Keep reminding them to stay positive, remain concentrated, and do everything they can to make time management a priority. Once finals are over, they will finally be able to relax and begin the summer fun!
