Columbia Mail Delivered Nearly 9,000 Packages to Student Rooms During Pre-Delivery

Columbia Mail’s pre-delivery program allows students to send packages to campus beginning in early August. The Mail team delivers any packages received before the mid-August cutoff date directly to the student’s room so that it’s there when the student arrives for Check-In. This eliminates the need for students to haul large or numerous packages from the Mail Center and greatly improves efficiency during Check-In.
