Laminator Repaired

The roll-top laminator is once again working. Issues with machine temperature and film type have resulted in examining and ultimately using a different film.

New film will not change the pricing already in place for the laminator.

Message from Campus IT

From the Help Desk & IT Staff:

Going forward, the Office of Information Technologies will NEVER ask for your password or other confidential information via email.

Many universities are being targeted by e-mails masquerading as the IT help desk requesting users' passwords. These scams are referred to as phishing attacks. A phishing attack is when you receive an official-looking e-mail from a financial institution, employer, or service provider. The e-mail states that you should click a link and confirms your login and password to this particular institution. These e-mails often link to pages that look official, but do not have the correct web address.

Never trust an e-mail that asks for your user name or password. You should never send passwords or other confidential information via e-mail.

If you have any questions or doubts, do not respond to a suspect email. Contact our Help Desk via phone (419) 289-5045 or visit us in-person at 100 Patterson Hall.
