Mail Handling Tips...
light of recent events, all are urged to be careful when handling and opening
mail. President Axel Steuer provides the following information to the campus
community: "The discovery of anthrax-tainted letters mailed to highly visible
people has generated a good deal of concern and anxiety across the country...
Consistent with advisories from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and
the U.S. Postal Service, therefore, we have provided campus mail handlers
with special guidelines and training. In addition, all of us are encouraged
to do the following both here at Gustavus and elsewhere.
Be on the alert for
letters or packages:
Anyone who receives a
letter or package that seems suspicious according to the criteria listed
with no return address
that bear restrictive
markings such as "Confidential" or "Personal"
that contain misspelled
that have any powdery
substance on the outside
that are unexpected or
from someone unfamiliar to you
addressed to the title
only or to an incorrect title
with hand-written or poorly
that have excessive postage
that show a city or state
postmark that doesn't match the return address
that are lopsided or uneven
that have a strange odor,
stains, discoloration, or crystallization on the wrapper, or
that have excessive tape
As we have done since
Sept. 11, let's continue to respond as a caring community to events that
are intended to disturb and to provoke fear; let's continue to take care
of ourselves and one another; let's recommit ourselves to working toward
a more just and peaceful world."

As one of the major world religions, Islam has had an important effect
on the development of the modern world. But, for most people in the West,
Islam is known only through press reports and sound bites on the evening
news. In this conversation, Granquist and Paul hope to present the world
of Islam to broaden the understanding of this often misunderstood religion
and to give new insights into a movement that is much in the news these
days. The campus community is invited to attend. Refreshments will be available.
