Incoming Mail and Packages
All incoming mail must be properly addressed to assure prompt and accurate delivery. All full-time Elizabethtown College students are assigned their own individual Student Mailbox number, and their incoming mail must be addressed accordingly.
Mail addressed to a Student must be addressed as follows:
Student’s Full Name
(Student Mailbox number) Baugher Avenue*
Elizabethtown, PA 17022
*For example, 123 Baugher AvenuePLEASE NOTE ….
- Although your Mailbox number will be part of your address, DO NOT use the word “box” in your address, since this will cause your mail to be confused at the local Elizabethtown Post Office with actual PO boxes at the post office.
- Baugher Avenue is the street mailing address dedicated to Elizabethtown College full-time students. Please DO NOT use the “One Alpha Drive” address, since this may cause significant delays in getting the mail to the appropriate mailbox.
