Shorter College selling old campus mailboxes
June 10 - Shorter College alumni and members of the local community have a chance to own a small piece of the college’s history.
Starting July 1, Shorter’s Office of Institutional Advancement will be selling old student mailboxes that were left behind with the recent renovation of the college post office. Mailboxes will be sold for $20 and will be available until Oct. 16. The old mailboxes served the college and its students for decades and have now been replaced with a more modern design.
Those interested in buying a mailbox can stop by the college’s Welcome Center, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Boxes can also be purchased online by visiting http://hawkspace.shorter.edu.
