With classes under way, here's a look at some of the highlights of the past few days as the University of Northern Colorado started its 125th year with a combination of traditional and not-so-traditional events on campus.
Fall classes begin Aug. 25.
UNC's 2014 Homecoming is Oct. 4, and the Student Alumni Association invites students, faculty and staff to nominate UNC seniors for Homecoming Royalty by 11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5. Self-nominations are acceptable. Eligibility requirements, other details and a nomination form are available on the Homecoming Royalty website. For more info or if you have questions, contact the SAA.
The campus community is reminded to take precautions such as wearing insect repellent during the West Nile Virus season. Recommended precautions against West Nile virus include the "five Ds":
For more information on West Nile virus and mosquito repellents, visit the Centers for Disease Control website.
The university often sees an increase in phishing attempts at the beginning of the semester. A phishing attempt will arrive as an email with some sort of "bait" content to entice users into clicking on a link or giving out personal details.
Some phishing emails can be identified by suspicious links, incorrect grammar, poor spelling or a request for personal information that weren't expecting.
If you suspect that you've received such an email, please report by forwarding it to the Technical Support Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information about phishing is available here.
With the start of the new semester and an increased number of pedestrians, dogs, skateboarders, bicyclists, in-line skaters and other forms of transportation on campus, please remember to travel courteously and safely along walkways, streets and parking lots.
This is especially important when traveling near individuals with disabilities, including those who use guide/service dogs, wheelchairs or other adaptive measures for whom well-meaning but over-exuberant dogs, rapidly approaching/overtaking bikes and boards, and other sudden changes in the flow of traffic can be hazardous.
Dog owners are also reminded to pick up after their pets to help make campus a cleaner and safer place.
UNC annual parking permits for the 2014-15 academic year are now available with no price increase from last year. Permits must be purchased in Ursa. Student permits cost $255 ($275 for K-Lot). Complete information, including detailed instructions for purchasing permits in Ursa, is available on Parking Services' website.
