On August 14th the College's Website will take on a new look. This fresh design will appear on most pages right away - if your department has customization that requires additional work to mirror this style, you can call the Web Office at 436-3031 and talk to Jennifer Knapp.
This new design features a cleaner style, using more of the available screen space, with updated graphics and reorganization of some of the higher-level subsites.
Since the Spring is such a busy time at the College, it appears that many offices have put off spring cleaning until the summer. As you walk through the halls of campus buildings, you’re bound to see large quantities of paper that has been culled and is headed for the garbage or recycling.
If you are cleaning, moving or rearranging your office this summer be on the lookout for any sensitive information that might be among the papers or equipment (computers, disks, CDs, etc.) you are disposing of. All documents containing personally identifiable information must be shredded or electronically destroyed (in the case of disks or other digital media).
You may not even remember that you have such information in your files. Be sure to check everything before it goes in the trash or recycling. Does the material contain personal information such as Social Security numbers or credit card numbers? Grades? Evaluations? Think carefully about the material. What damage could result from it being grabbed by an unscrupulous person?
Even information twenty years out of date is still considered
sensitive and must be shredded. If you see sensitive information being
disposed of improperly please bring it to the attention of your
supervisor so that it can be properly handled.

After several months of intensive testing and preparation, we are ready to begin deploying Microsoft Office 2007 Professional.
Unlike the previous three versions of Microsoft Office, the release
of Office 2007 has a dramatically different user interface. Menus have
been reorganized and replaced by a contextual “Ribbon”, and this version
offers a number of new features and enhancements. To help support this
change, the Technology Training Program has scheduled a number of “New
Features” sessions for the Office 2007 applications, and Level 1 and
Level 2 training sessions for those who want more in-depth instruction.
In addition, we will continue to offer individual training sessions to
those who are unable to set time aside during our regularly scheduled
As always, please feel free to contact us or the Information Technology Help Desk with any questions about this transition.
