Amazon deliveries to campus are experiencing delays further up the shipping chain, and delays are expected to continue the rest of the month. The Mail Center advises the campus community to take these delays into account when placing orders to be delivered to campus. Most Amazon packages cannot be forwarded and will need to be reshipped at further cost to the individual if they need to be sent to a different address. Please email kory.figura@wartburg.edu with questions.
