EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW

REMINDER: Student Services Fee Committee

Be Safe Online

Most UMD students bring their own computers to campus, and many student computers are targets for malware (viruses, worms, spyware, etc.) and phishing attempts each year.  Here are some helpful approaches to protecting your computer and yourself.
  • Install and use free anti-virus software provided by the University.
  • Be aware that spyware can infect your machine and collect information about you.  Take steps to protect yourself.  And if you do suspect that your computer has been infected, visit our TechCenter for help.
  • Be alert to email phishing attempts, which try to fool you into providing private information such as your Internet password, banking information, or other information that might lead to identity theft.

"Blind Spots" Webinar
Available online after 4 pm on Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Dispelling 2011's biggest myths of career achievement:

This session will offer guidance to graduating students on how to survive and thrive in a post-recessionary business climate that eschews controversy, office politics, and quick promotions and is returning to an emphasis on traditional workplace values like trust and direct communication.

By the end of this webinar, students will have an understanding of how to:
  • Demonstrate a strong work ethic
  • Obtain positive visibility in their jobs
and be strong representatives of their organization’s culture.

This is an important Webinar to help graduates understand what they need to do to become successful employees.
