Jack Frost is a knocking...Winter is right around the corner which means freezing rain, sleet, and snow are in our future.  And no matter how careful we are, those slippery surfaces seem to pop up out of nowhere.  So what you should do in the event of a slip, trip, or fall?  The first and most important thing you should do is to try and prevent something like this from happening.  If you see a hazardous condition, please report it right away to either Facilities Management or the Environmental Health Safety and Risk Management (EHSRM) Office.  We always need an extra set of eyes helping us out.  Second, since hazards are typically identified after an incident, be sure you take proper medical care of yourself or the injured person.  And finally, please notify the EHSRM Office or University Police as soon as feasibly possible.

Believe in the magic... Parking Services is having their annual Toys for Tickets Drive through the month of November.  Woot Woot.  Anyone who receives a citation of $35 or less during the month of November is invited to bring in a new unwrapped toy, of equal or greater value than the citation fine, to the Parking Services Office no later than 3:00 PM on Friday, December 1, 2017 in order to have their citation fee waived.  Oh wait, you haven't received any citations this year?  That's okay, you are still welcome to bring us toys too.  Let's work together to brighten a child's holiday this year!

Gone Phishing... Have you ever been accused of not sharing enough personal information on social media? No?  Well look no further as over 144 million people can attest to a recent oversharing service provided by a popular consumer credit reporting agency.  If you would rather keep your information to yourself and protect your credit and identity, please take a look at this accompanying article for tips on how to protect yourself.
Poof and then it was gone... Your smart phone has suddenly vanished in your very own pocket or maybe your laptop has decided to play hide-n-seek in your car or its own bag.  Sound familiar?  Before this happens to you, here are a couple of ways to help you locate it (and protect your information) when it does happen. 
First, sign up for a tracking app or service.  For example, Apple has long had a service called Find My iPhone where you can register your iPhone or iPad.  Other manufacturers have similar services or apps that can help such as Lookout for Android.
Second, definitely use a PIN or other lock type on your mobile device.  If you own an iPhone or iPad, this automatically encrypts the data on your deceive as well.
And thirdly, it never hurts to give our Information Technology Department a call at 942-2911 for help, especially if you have used your phone to check your work email.  We have options to assist and guide you through this process.  FMI mosey on over here...
