LSU is officially switching to Ricoh USA to privatize mailing services on campus starting next fall, the university decided this week.
The move will cost students more and require students living on campus to purchase mailboxes, but also should solve long-term mailing services problems on campus, said Jason Tolliver, LSU director of auxiliary services.
The expedited privatization process is the result of ongoing state budget cuts to colleges and LSU being placed on the planned list of U.S. Postal Service closures nationally amid federal budget problems, he said.
The end result should be better quality in a consolidated, one-stop shop for mailing, copying, binding and graphic design services on the bottom floor of the LSU Student Union, he said.
