I got a plant as a gift from my son from school. I want it to thrive but I don't know what it is to gather information on it. If you could help I'd greatly appreciate it.

Sincerely,
A Momma

Vinca (Catharanthus roseus Coraยฎ White)

a vinca, may be red, white, or pink, maybe a lavender color
common annual, easily grows from seed.

@islander: I think the leaves are different and Frillylily's answer seems closest.
@Frillylily: Thank you, I was worried about over-watering it and for good measure since it tends to rot.
Thank you both for a response and I will care for it as a Vinca.
Have a great day! Hurray!

I doubt that's the proper ID. Get back to us when it blooms.
