About The Founders

Campus Arrival was founded by two dads, one a father of a newborn and the other a father of college freshmen who experienced for themselves the difficulty of understanding what to pack for campus move-in day.

Campus Arrival started when one of the founders was helping his student head-off to college. The school provided a recommended list of items and prohibited items. To track everything, they downloaded a supplies checklist app.

Then they searched for recommended items that weren’t included in the ‘official’ list but had to constantly check back with the prohibited list to see if the new recommendations were allowed. There were no recommendations on laptops until orientation – the school recommended searching the IT dept or major-specific sites.

On top of that, once they wanted an item, they had to go to Amazon and search for it. For some stuff, the quality didn’t matter (like pens, pencils, notebooks) but for other stuff, they took time to make sure it was a good product (like laptops, alarm clocks, mini-fridge). We thought ‘There has to be a better way’.
