As someone who lost both a hat and a cell phone in the past two days and miraculously recovered them through various means, I feel like it might help to recap the official Lost and Found policy at this place in case you find a stray item or need to recover one:
WesIDs – should be returned to the WesCard Office in North College.
Keys (Dorm, Building/Office, Car) – should all be returned to the Office of Residential Life. ResLife will receive all keys and forward them to their appropriate office(s).
Valuables ($25 or more), (e.g. cell phones, iPods, bicycles, etc.) – should be forwarded to Public Safety. If items are not claimed in a timely manner, they will be donated to various charities and organizations in need.
Textbooks – should be returned to the department of the subject matter.
Clothing and miscellaneous items – offices can hold onto clothing and miscellaneous items for a period of time. If they are not claimed in a timely fashion, they can be donated or disposed of at the office’s discretion. Offices are asked to use their judgment when holding items.
The designated Lost and Found is in the Public Safety office, open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, and there are also Lost and Found boxes in the Info Desk at Usdan and the front desk at Olin. Hope this wasn’t too redundant.
