Early alert program helps students manage personal, academic challenges

The Thrive Priority Support Network, a program based on an Early Alert model, helps students resolve problems early, before academic success is affected. Thrive helped 100 undergrads in the fall 2016 semester get the help they needed much earlier. If you receive a confidential Thrive email, we hope you choose to answer it. Learn more about Thrive by watching this short video.

IT service rolling outages

As IT continues to enhance and protect the university’s computer environment, an outage is required during night time hours (10:30 p.m. – 7 a.m.) in specific buildings across campus. During this time there will be rolling outages, meaning you may be able to access services, but it will be intermittent as work is being done. Wireless access will remain available. These rolling outages will remain until March 10 Learn more.
