Babcock Ice Cream on Campus

Freshman gifts that will make them feel at home

Send your student some love ❤️ via Babcock Dairy Store

Whether college means moving to a new city or attending school right in one’s backyard, it is a giant leap and can be challenging. Give your freshman a little extra comfort by sending them some classic campus goodies from Babcock Dairy Story, a UW–Madison staple. 

Ice Cream Pies 🥧

Dorm rooms can be low on space, but the perfect item to toss in a mini fridge is a delicious ice cream pie. A late-night slice of one of our housemade pies is the perfect medicine for a long day at school. Bonus points if you share a slice with your floor—after all, with flavors from Snickers to Chocolate Raspberry and everything in between, there is something for everyone. 


Making friends can be kinda scary as a freshman. We’ve learned that the best way to break the ice is with ice cream. With a box of single-serve scoops, there is enough for all of your freshman’s new friends to share. 


Memorial Union and Union South are the best spots on campus to gather with friends, meet new ones, or enjoy the magic of Madison solo. With a Babcock Dairy gift card, your freshman can grab a sweet treat any time. Call us to order a gift card today!

A little taste of home can go a long way when it comes to making a new college experience feel just a bit more comfortable. Whether you choose an ice cream pie, a box of single-serve scoops, or gift card, we know they’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness. Shop now and send some love to your new Badger.
