Welcome Back, Students!

Welcome back to Hawk Hill (and for all the Freshmen Hawks, welcome for the first time!).  We hope you had a wonderful, relaxing summer and are geared up for an awesome fall semester.

For those of you who are new to campus, the Technology Service Center (TSC), located in Science Center 129, is your one-stop shop for all things IT related. We have walk-in hours daily where you can have hardware and software issues addressed and repaired, as well as phone and email support.

Look at all those friendly faces!


We spent our summer preparing and getting excited for your arrival.  Here are a few of the more important updates from the IT world:

Student Work Study Portlet – This new portlet in The Nest will allow work study students to view their Work Study earned as well as hours remaining to work.  Work Study students can view the dollar amount they have been authorized to earn, the hours they are allowed to work, and the remaining percentage of each throughout the course of the semester.  The Student Work Study portlet can be found in the Tuition & Aid page of The Nest.

NestFlix – Need a break from studying? Head on over to The Nest to watch movies on NestFlix. NestFlix can be found on the Campus Life page of The Nest.  Choose from 16 different, hand-picked movies from our Student Life department. Casablanca, anyone?



Blackboard Learn Portlet – This new portlet gives students and faculty quick access to Blackboard Learn courses and information.  To access this portlet, visit the Classes & Registration page in The Nest.
