  1. Anyone have any advice on sending a care package to their student living in an off-campus apartment? Every time the Post Office attempted delivery (signature required), my son wasn’t at home. Not to mention that the box wouldn’t fit in his mailbox. He doesn’t have a car to go pick the package up at the Post Office. The Post Office ended up returning the package to me (that I spent $25 to mail!).

    1. Hi Martha,

      Have you tried either UPS or Fedex. I personally have used UPS many times. I believe with UPS your son can schedule a delivery. Also, with some packages, your son can sign the back of the slip and they will leave the package at the door.

      Good luck!
