Do not upgrade to Mac OS X El Capitan or you could break printing and access to the DePauw network. #AnnounceIT

September 17th, 2015 by Lynda S. LaRoche

We do not recommend you upgrade to Mac OS X El Capitan when it is released on September 30th because Information Services has not had time to thoroughly test it with all our systems. Do not take the chance of breaking your ability to print or access the DePauw network.

Welcome back as we begin this new academic year.

I wanted to take a moment to provide some quick tips from the Information Services team, offer updates about IT projects that are underway, and summarize highlights of some other more-detailed emails that you will also receive over the next few days.

  3. Wireless Network Updates – DePauwSecure and DePauwGuest
  4. Technology Classrooms Updates – Overhead Transparency Projectors & VCRs have been removed

Reminder: e-Services accounts for upperclass students will have a new look beginning 4/29. #AnnounceIT

April 27th, 2015 by Lynda S. LaRoche

2-days until new e-Services look for upperclass students

Beginning Wednesday, April 29th, e-Services accounts for upperclass students will have a new look, as shown below. This is the same look that first-year students have been using all year. It’s important to note that faculty and staff accounts will not change as part of this update.

The top section of student’s home page (labeled “A” in the image below) is for messages related to course registration and other timely academic events throughout the year. The messages section (“B” below) that is just below the messages section lists the student’s faculty advisor(s).

All of the familiar links and information that student’s use today will still be available through the e-Services menu, just by expanding the appropriate section (Academics, for example):
