Amazon Lockers keep your deliveries safe

A package is delivered: you are home, but the delivery person did not knock or ring the bell, so you don’t realize it is sitting outside your front door. Or worse, you receive a text that your package was delivered, open your front door, and find nothing.

As an academic and career advisor, I have been working with students that are preparing for college this fall.
