We are currently holding all packages that arrive if you are in our system as living on campus for the Fall 2011 semester or if you are currently a “hold at Phillips Hall” summer student. You will receive an email notifying you that a package has arrived and where to pick it up. It is important that you read the body of the email. During this time in the semester we keep small and large packages at the Mail Center. Last year during the first 6 weeks of the semester we received 18,350 packages for students. 

Circles residents: Please notify your correspondents and remember to use the new Circles building numbers.  We will resume sorting mail into the Community Center mail boxes on Wednesday 8/17/2011.

The Working Parents Affinity Group (WPAG) provides different perspectives on integrating work and our families as working professionals. This group is co-facilitated by two moms who work here on campus and who are interested in developing a resourceful place for other working parents to come together and share with one another based on ideas that YOU provide!!
