The massive landslide has interrupted mail service in Zhouqu, but now service has resumed, and the delivery of college entrance admission notices tops the postmen's daily job.

This tent is a very special post office. It's been set up just for college admission notices.

And it gets busier by the moment.

Fang Kaiping, Deputy Head of Zhouqu Post Office, said, "We're now short of staff. We have to borrow some postmen from neighboring counties. We hope to deliver the notices to the candidates soon."

Liu Chunjuan is taking notes in the tent. She's been doing this job for six years.

But this time it's different. Though she lost her mother and brother in the mudslide, she won't take time off.

Liu Chunjuan, staff of Zhouqu No.1 Middle School, said, "This is my job. Other people aren't familiar with it. I can handle it."

Student Chen Xianhong said, "I got my admissions notice! I'm really excited!"

300 college places have been allocated in Zhouqu. Most notices have been personally delivered to schools and students. Though some students moved away after the mudslide, the postal service is determined to find them.
