As the holiday season approaches, this is a reminder that Ithaca College Policy 2.12.3 number 10 states that “only items pertaining to College business, events and activities may be sent through the campus mail system.”

Personal packages should be sent to your home address. The Mail Service department should not be expected to handle, sort and send notifications for personal packages. Some examples of this include cell phones and/or accessories, personal book orders, wine orders, and other miscellaneous packages that are not business related. 
This does not apply to Resident Directors.
