The UofSC Postal Sevice would like to thank all of our student workers for their hard
work and perseverance during this 20-21 school year. They showed great resiliency
and flexibility as we had to make many changes to the entire Student Mail Center operations,
and a large part of our success goes to all of our student workers.
