Good morning students,

The campus is busy this morning as the students who are remaining on campus are moving into one of the 3Ms - Moore, Morrow, or Morris Pratt. Our campus operations team is moving boxes and belongings to help everyone get settled.

I hope that all of you are taking time this weekend to get prepared for the start of remote classes next week. I know that there is a lot of uncertainty that still lingers, If you haven't done so, please familiarize yourself with the Student Strategies for Learning Remotely web page. If you are able, please test your zoom and your network. Below is some information about how to test zoom, gaining access to adobe creative club, and thesis support.

Take care of yourselves and, as always, don't hesitate to reach out.

Sincerely,
Liz Agosto
Dean of Students


Zoom Testing

If you are using Zoom in your classes, join a test meeting (https://zoom.us/test) ahead of time! This will walk you through installing the Zoom software and testing your video and sound.

Adobe Creative Cloud Temporary Access Due to COVID-19

As a result of campus closure, student access to Adobe Creative Cloud in labs and classrooms is not available. Adobe has provided temporary at-home access for impacted students, so that they can continue their work remotely. Please follow these instructions access to Creative Cloud Desktop Apps on your computer.

Thesis Support Activities

The Writing Center and Library aim to continue thesis support activities despite the move to online learning. Please let us know if you are interested in joining a Moodle site for thesis students to connect online, hold virtual write-ins, get motivational support from staff and each other, and reduce the isolation of finishing a thesis from a distance. Complete this form to be added to the Moodle site or to share your ideas and suggestions: http://bit.ly/joinmoodle
