According to various news sources, the post office in the EMU will be shut down effective December 31st. This is going to be a large problem for international students, freshmen, students with disabilities for whom travel is no small task, students with no wheeled transport, and busy people in general.
Will there be a protest? Will there be an outcry? Unlikely, as no one at UO enjoys protesting things that have an actual impact on student’s day-to-day lives. Did the Phil Knight just gift the University a 41.7 million dollar moated glass brick in order for athletes to more effectively copy their homework? Yes. But, lets be real, no one really gives a shit about anything but sports at this school, so why would they spend on anything else?
A map with directions to the University’s new post office location will be posted whenever we can figure out where exactly the “Southside Station” is.
