About the Pack

The idea for our original “Exam Stressbuster”/Summer Pack, which was first rolled out in 2004, was inspired by students’ unions suggesting that it would be a great boost to morale to receive a student-friendly goody bag at exam time. Contents typically include a sugar-fix, soft drinks, pens, post-its, notepads, and a variety of student-friendly seasonal offers. Previous sponsors have included O2, Wrangler, Lucozade Alert, Spar, the Irish Times, Vodafone, PC World and JD Sports. Because the exam system is semesterised on so many leading campuses, the students' unions responsible for the December semester exams at the Royal Dublin Society expressed huge interest in a Winter version of the Pack. The Winter Pack is ideal for advertisers who are specifically interested in targeting Dublin students, who may have a more targeted Autumn/Winter campaign, or who may have missed our earlier third level projects. As the Packs are split 50/50 by gender, the option for targeting men only or women only (5,000 Packs) is also available.
