U.S. producers made 3.4% more cardboard in 2020 than the previous year due to higher demand for shipping boxes.

A statue of him at a parish church adjacent to the campus, depicts him carrying a man diminished by disease, head resting on the saint’s shoulder, commemorating Gonzaga’s time in plague-swept Rome in the late 16th century, when he would seek sufferers in the streets, carry them to the hospitals, wash their wounds and nourish their souls.
