Bad Omen for USPS? Lehigh U. Sells Its Mailboxes

I have a lot of memories associated with the campus mail room. As an undergrad, I wrote a lot of letters, and sent them in envelopes with stamps, and got a fair number back. But email and Facebook is so much more efficient — I’m not surprised that campuses are looking at ways to put that unused space to better use.

As a student’s letter mail is deposited in the appropriate folder, a bar-code reader sends the student an e-mail alert. Students swipe their ID cards as they enter the facility, cueing employees to bring the mail to the counter to be picked up.
