For many students, the Fall 2013 term has begun. They’re getting situated in their new classes, making new friends and gearing up for new academic challenges. In the month of July, Victorinox Travel Gear gave one backpack for each backpack sold on swissarmy.com to a student for the upcoming school year. We are very excited to share photos and short bios of some of the students who will be sporting Victorinox Backpacks during the upcoming school year!
One of the organizations we partnered with is Boys Hope Girls Hope. Their mission: Boys Hope Girls Hope helps academically capable and motivated children-in-need to meet their full potential and become men and women for others by providing value-centered, family-like homes, opportunities and education through college.

Meet Arecia: Arecia is a Freshman at the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff. She is studying Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. Arecia says she is going to miss her small high school. She graduated with a class of 38 students and developed some good friendships. However, she is looking forward to meeting new people, and knows she will not have any problems with that because the freshman class at UK-Pine Bluff is 500 students and is also planning to pledge a sorority.
