Here’s hoping everyone had a wonderful long weekend, with plenty of luge, bobsled, and curling (if that’s your thing)!
As we get back into the swing of things, here are a few reminders:
In case you have missed it, big changes are coming to Office 365! This week’s Friday Coffee Fix will cover a lot of information about the changes, so make sure you stop by L1735 from 10-12 or again from 1-3. If you can’t make the Coffee Fix, you can stop by L1735 to chat with Kathleen Coate during her drop-in hours (with the exception this week of Thursday, when she won’t be holding them).
Please also remember that students will not be able to access their current Office 365 accounts from Friday, Feb. 23 at 6 pm until Monday, Feb. 26. Keep this in mind as you create due dates, etc. Students CAN start using their new Office 365 already, however, and this will be available all weekend. To login, students should visit https://login.microsoftonline.com.
Book orders for summer semester are due today! Tomorrow (Wednesday, Feb. 21), links will be sent out for Fall 2018 orders; these orders are due by Monday, March 12th.
