OCM Helps Your College Student Adjust to Dorm Life

by Nicole Etolen


Adjusting to life as a college student can be quite a challenge, especially for kids who are moving away from home for the first time. There are just so many new changes to take in! From learning to live with a stranger to setting up a dorm room so it’s comfortable; from fending for yourself for meals to washing your own laundry, college can definitely be overwhelming at first. That doesn’t even take into account all the classes! OCM helps make it easier for college students to adjust to their new life by providing the tools for everything from choosing the right dorm bedding before arriving to proudly displaying that degree after graduation!

OCM Helps Your Child Adjust to College Life

Who is OCM?

That’s a tough question to answer, because OCM is really so many things! While the acronym “OCM” technically stands for Our Campus Market, OCM as a company stands for supporting college students through their entire journey, from the very first days through that proud moment when the stand on the state to receive their degree.

OCM started with one great idea at Trenton University in New Jersey and one small company in Maryland. In 1981 in New Jersey, members of the residence hall staff came up with the brilliant idea to give parents a way to provide care packages to their students during final exams. Many students spend this time cramming for those major tests and tend to neglect their health! The care packages were the perfect way for parents to remind their kids how much they care about them and believe in their ability to succeed. The idea took off like wildfire! That small company was named Campus Fund Raisers.

In Maryland, also during the 1980s, On Campus Marketing came up with a great solution to help parents provide all the basic necessities to get their college student set up in a new dorm room. This included rugs, bedding, curtains and more. The two companies helped each other out, as each was targeting a different time of the year. In 2000, they merged into OCM! Now, they are able to help college students all year round!
