A student who discovered a mysterious white box on a woman’s couch was stunned and saddened to find out the box contained a gift, university officials said Thursday.
According to the university, the package was delivered to the woman’s residence hall by the owner of a business in the area.
The box was delivered as a gift from the University of Mary-land and was sent to the residence hall on Nov. 29.
According the university’s release, the box was opened and inside was a box of books, including one titled “How to Survive a Plague.”
It is unclear what happened to the box, which was delivered in a white box with the University logo in the middle.
The woman who discovered the box said she is unsure if the box contains a gift or if it was simply left in the mailbox, according to the release.
University officials have not provided further details about the mystery box or whether it contains a book.
