The Juice (Students) - Aug. 28

Aug. 28, 2017
Information about your Wartburg mailbox

As a new service this year, you can access your mailbox number and combination anytime by logging into my.wartburg. Under “Residence Info” in the “Campus Life” tab, you will find your box number and combination along with your other housing information. Your box and combination will stay the same for your entire stay at Wartburg College, even if your residence changes.
Any items arriving with a tracking number will be stored in the Mail Center until you retrieve them at our service window. Please have your ID ready when picking up packages. Email notification will be sent from mailroom@wartburg.edu when we have your package on campus. Campus mail and regular mail (letters, magazines, flyers) will be delivered to your campus mail box. We advise checking your box at least weekly.

Bremer Avenue construction to affect campus entrance
The college has been informed that starting Monday, Aug. 28, the normal route to Wartburg's south entrance will change due to ongoing construction along Bremer Avenue in Waverly. The only places along this stretch where vehicles can cross Bremer Avenue will be at First Street (near the river) or at 10th Street (Joe's Knight Hawk and First National Bank). Traffic will NOT be allowed to cross or take left turns at Eighth Street/Wartburg Boulevard to get onto campus. This will affect mainly those traveling from the south and west. Click here for details about the construction project. The next phase of work is expected to last until late November.
Parking tag pick up
Parking tags will be available for pickup at the Mail Center window until Sept. 8. You must sign for your tag; it will not be in your mailbox. After Sept. 8, tags can be picked up in the Security Office.
