“CSS was very helpful and was an amazing service for an out of state student. It made it really easy to pack, move and store my stuff for the next year at CU. I really don't think CU should monopolize packing companies. CSS doesn't even come into your dorm. They wait outside with their truck and load your stuff for storage. If you did not allow CSS to reach out to CU students, it would be doing CU a great disservice.” — Lori Olson
