Busy? Sort of.

Penn Mail Service Carriers Karen Lilley (foreground), Granville Bracy (left) and Rick Ramos (background) are hard at work sorting mail in the University mail room. The Mail Service staff sorts roughly 1.5 million pieces of intramural mail and 13 million pieces of incoming domestic mail each year. It also handles 52 tons of international mail and applies $2.5 million in postage to outgoing domestic mail. The Mail Service will also offer tax certification and folding and inserting when it moves to new, larger facilities in the Left Bank complex March 16.
