Mail Services

Drury University understands that due to the nature of student organizations, many mail-based projects are completed each year.  The Office of Student Involvement in coordination with Carbon Copy and University Communications provides multiple mail-based resources available to all student organizations.

Review the information listed below to assist your student organization with their mail-based needs:

Primary Contact
Student organizations should have a primary contact for all mail-based needs and information. Traditionally the primary contact is the campus advisor because of their stable involvement in the organization.

Mail Services Charges
Student Organizations may charge mail-based requests to their Drury University budget account provided that it is on file with Carbon Copy. If it is not currently on file, the campus advisor should contact the Carbon Copy staff to set up the charge account.

If your student organization does not want members to be able to charge to the student organization budget account, contact Carbon Copy to remove or freeze this option.

Student Organization Mailing Address
Student Organizations should use their campus advisor's office address as their mailing address.

If this option isn't available, Student Organizations may use the Office of Student Involvement's address:

[Group Name]
c/o Office of Student Involvement
900 N. Benton Ave., FSC 120
Springfield, MO 65802
Student Organization Mail Boxes
Student organizations may request to have a mailbox in the Findlay Student Center.  If your group is interested in using mailbox in the FSC mailroom, contact the Office of Student Involvement to set this up.

Student organizations are responsible for checking their own mailbox and distributing their mail.

Mailer Content Review
