I agree with the idea of him opening a bank account. If possible, I would find a bank that has a branch close to campus for him and another branch close to were you live. It's very easy to deposit money into someone else's bank account. You just give them the check and account number. Since your only putting money in, the bank doesn't really care who you are.
