Special Occasions Agency

Every day is a special occasion. Celebrate with us.


Founded in 1929, the Special Occasions Agency has been delighting students with gifts and goodies from home for over 80 years. A member of Princeton Student Agencies within the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students, we are a student-operated business that provides student leaders with a unique opportunity to gain business and entrepreneurial experience, while also giving them a chance to earn money during the academic year.

Throughout the year, we offer a selection of care packages, baked goods, flowers, and balloons that are delivered to the dorms by our student workers. Whether it is flowers for their dance performance, a cake for their birthday, or a care package to get them through exams or a tough week, we are always here to help surprise your student.
