Forgot your lunch?  Left your cleats at home?  Need your homework?  Maybe someone knows you need/want this item and brought it to school for you, but how will you know?
Check the “Message Board” by the Dean’s Office.  If you have an item, there will be a note with your name on it directing you to where your item can be picked up.
Even if you are not expecting something, take a look at the board.  See a friend’s name on the board?......let them know.
