ConnectCare3 Connections – Student Anxiety Rates on the Rise

August 2018

The love-hate relationship with social media has become all too familiar for teens as they struggle with the amount of attention and exposure their online presence brings. Learn more in this month’s Connections newsletter.

On Page 2 of this month’s newsletter, read how Jim Steff didn’t let his prostate cancer diagnosis in January slow him down. Learn how a ConnectCare3 Nurse Navigator assisted him in making it to the top of Black Elk Peak in July!

As always, if you need assistance, remember our team is just a phone call away.

Faculty: Important Classroom Technology Changes

Due to the end of support for Microsoft Windows 7, the IT Department has begun to rollout Windows 10 on all new computer deployments beginning this summer.  That means some classrooms will have the same setup that you are used to while others will now have the new-look of Windows 10.  The Windows 10 computers will be primarily (but not exclusively) installed in the classrooms in Dooling Hall and Campbell.

We encourage all faculty members regardless of changes, to visit and test the classroom technology at least once prior to the beginning of your first class. That way, you can become familiar with the technology in each location that you teach. If you logon to a computer for the first time, a new Profile will be created, so it may be advantageous to complete this ahead of time. [Read more…]

Malware we are encountering

Recently we have noticed an increase in malware infections soliciting or involving tech support requests or warnings. These viruses or trojans can be attached to other software you intend to install on your computer. One notice seemingly from Microsoft, that your computer is having an issue, has been making the rounds recently. It directs you to call a phone number, and the individual on the other end of the line requests payment from you, and remote access to your PC. This is a known scam. If you are targeted, please shutdown your computer and call the Helpdesk at x4357 immediately. A member of the DeSales University I.T. staff will examine your computer as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued vigilance and cooperation in keeping our computer network safe.
