The Mail Center reminds you to please check your mailbox before you leave campus for the summer – whether that’s after finals, after Tour Week, or at the end of May Term. Mail forwarding will start May 29 unless you have contacted us to ask to start earlier, but not all mail can be forwarded. Items unable to be forwarded may be assumed abandoned and disposed of. If you are permanently leaving campus, we advise that you take a moment and remove your Wartburg address from your online shipping accounts – it will save you headaches later!
|Keep your mailbox open during summer
|Are you staying on campus or in Waverly this summer? Your campus mailbox can stay open, but you do need to notify the Mail Center that you wish to keep receiving mail at your campus box. Students who do not request to keep their box open for the summer will have their mail forwarded. Email email@example.com with requests to keep your campus mailbox open for the summer.
|Campus landscaping and tree removal
|The Landscape and Natural Resource Committee would like to let the campus community know about upcoming work. To prepare the area in the center of Afton Manors for a more natural, sustainable, low-maintenance prairie planting, we must kill all the vegetation. The grounds crew will conduct a controlled spraying of this area, as weather allows. The seed will be planted shortly after. Waverly Utilities needs to remove the four trees east of the Operations & Maintenance Office building that are reaching the electrical lines above. The utility is providing certificates for replacement trees, which will be used to develop a learning area for biology faculty. Direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Camps Policy changes
|The Business Office has recently reviewed and revised its Camps Policy. If your department or organization will be hosting a camp, we strongly encourage you to review the policy in depth. The policy is posted on the Business Office website here. Changes to the policy include procedures for processing:
• Student Employee Wages
• Faculty and Staff Wages
• Vendor and Contracted Labor Payments
Also, as a reminder, the policy outlines the responsibility of the department or organization hosting the camp to work with the vice president for administration to ensure that the camp is insured appropriately. Direct questions about the policy to Tracy Rucker, controller, 352-8238.
