Throughout the month of February, members of the Gustavus community will be monitoring their energy consumption through a new, state-of-the-art website at gustavus.edu/energy. The website will be updated hourly and accurately monitors energy use in most buildings on campus. Students, staff, and faculty will be able to view a building's energy use in a 24-hour period and the estimated cost of that energy use. For more information, or if you have questions, call Jim Dontje, director of the Johnson Center for Environmental Innovation, at x7206.

When a Saturday delivery is needed, USPS Express Mail is the most economical option. No extra fee is charged for Saturday delivery, as with other carriers. Other specialized mailing options include: certified mail, return receipt, delivery confirmation, signature confirmation, and insurance. Mail must be at the College Post Office by 3:30 p.m. each business day for processing.
