Welcome to Winter Quarter!

Welcome back! If you haven't heard already, migrating your student email account from "" to "" is super important! If it isn't done by the end of January 12th you will lose your existing print credit, and you'll lose all your files if it isn't done by the end of the quarter! The IT Help Desk in Building 25 is the place to go if you need any help with this process!


If you missed it over break, check out this awesome video of the Dance Club's Holiday Flash Mob!

Checking Grades

We're coming to the end of the quarter (quickly!), and if you're checking your grades in Canvas here's something you need to check. You can show you grade either based on just the assignments you've completed OR on all of the assignments for the class. If you're wondering about your grade, your grade in my classes is based on all assignments for the class, whether you've completed them or not.

To make sure you get an accurate reading of your grade, while viewing the grades for a class select Treat ungraded as 0.


Vote for tacocat!

Good Afternoon Everybody!

Don't forget to log on to Yammer and vote for your favorite palindrome costume, tacocat! All you have to do is like my photo. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners get coffee cards!

Please appreciate my creativity so I don't feel so ridiculous.


Also, I drink way too much coffee and my budget hates me for it.
