This evening, Friday, February 23rd, IT will again be launching a new version of our antivirus software, Symantec's Endpoint Protection. The new software will be installed on all ESU-owned Windows computers, including all laptops.  Beginning Friday night, and repeating Saturday, and Sunday nights, February 24, and 25, computers will receive the update overnight.

We will need you to reboot your computer and leave it powered on for the weekend.

The software installs automatically, and your computer will re-boot spontaneously.

If the update does not install during any periods designated, IT personnel will contact you to ensure the update gets applied as soon as possible. For those laptops that live off-campus all the time (SLIM Portland, for example) we can assist you remotely with installing the latest software.  You may call the Help Desk any time for assistance.

Thank you for your patience and assistance during this initiative as we work to keep ESU computers and data safe and secure.  Questions may be directed to the IT Help Desk at 341-5555 (toll free 1-877-341-5555).  Or go to myIT from Hornet.emporia.edu​, and click on the Security/AntiVirus topic in the menu for all the details

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

 

The prediction for the next several days for the chance for rain, freezing rain, or snow starting up during tonight and continuing through the weekend. The prediction tonight is from a trace to 0.2" of freezing rain.  There will be crews out when these events start to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Crews will continue to work through the weekend to clear and treat roads, parking lots and walks.  FOOD & LIBRARY PATHWAYS will be addressed first.

                                                                                     

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after each event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event.

Topeka - In accordance with Executive Order 10-12, Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff from sun-up to sun-down beginning immediately and continuing through Monday, February 19 to honor the victims of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL.

"On behalf of Kansans everywhere, our hearts go out to our brothers and sisters impacted by the tragic act of violence in Florida yesterday," said the Governor. "When confronted with such evil, we must come together, turn our eyes towards what is good by serving our communities, our neighbors, and proving that love will always triumph over hate."

The White House on Thursday issued a proclamation directing flags at all public buildings and military installations to be flown at half-staff to show America's support the victims.

​Today the focus is on PHYSICAL WELLNESS.  Given the continuing influenza season we thought it was a good time for a reminder on how to stay well when everyone around you is sick.

1.  Mom was right; you need plenty of sleep, regular exercise, and nutritious meals.  This helps your immune system stay strong to fight off illness.

2.  Wash your hands.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth until you have thoroughly scrubbed.  Handwashing is best but if running water isn't handy, alcohol based hand sanitizers are the next best thing.

3.  Avoid close contact with people who are ill.  Disinfect surfaces that others may have touched.  And, sick people, please stay home.

4.  Contact your healthcare provider with sudden influenza symptoms, there are medications that can shorten the course of illness.

5.  Consider vaccination if you haven't already.  It's not too late; flu season can last until May.

Be Well, Hornets!

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University ( www.emporia.edu ) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction for this weekend is for the chance for snow starting up during the day and continuing through the evening on Saturday and very early morning on Sunday. The prediction is from a trace to possibly 2 inches.  Again, we are on the line.  There will be crews out when this snow event starts to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Crews will continue to work on Sunday to clear and treat of roads, parking lots and walks.  Church lots and the FOOD & LIBRARY PATHWAYS will be addressed first.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf.  Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after the event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event. ​

Whether you are looking for Summer employment, or are a May grad seeking a full-time position, now is the perfect time to begin your job search! Here are a few tips to help you navigate this overwhelming task:

EXPAND YOUR SEARCH
Though Monster.com and Indeed.com are great sites for viewing many global opportunities, you will find yourself in competition with the hundreds or thousands of other people who are viewing these same jobs. Consider searching professional organizations in your field/area of interest, as many of these sites contain job boards. Additionally, individual companies often post positions on their own website, so if there is a specific company of interest to you, do your homework and investigate their site directly.

USE YOUR NETWORK
Did you know that roughly 85% of jobs are obtained through networking? Whether you know it or not, you already have a network of people who can help you in your search. Friends, relatives, classmates, professors, and coworkers are all party of your network. Whether they are writing you a letter of recommendation, serving as a professional reference, putting in a casual "good word" for you, or letting you know about open positions they might hear of, your network can play a major role in landing the job. One way to remain connected with your network is through LinkedIn, which not only allows you to connect with colleagues and search for employment, but also allows employers to search for you!

GOOGLE YOURSELF
You have probably been told to keep your social media accounts "private" so that potential employers can't see your personal photos and posts, but the truth is that no social media presence is almost as bad as finding questionable content. 92% of US companies recruit and screen candidates online, and 34% have dismissed candidates due to online reputation problems. The easiest way to start managing your online reputation is to Google yourself. Do these results support your resume and project the professional image employers want to see?​

​"I don't need a church to tell me I'm wrong where I already know I'm wrong; I need a church to tell me I'm wrong where I think I'm right." 

G.K. Chesterton was one of the great novelists, poets, journalists, and essayists of the 20th century, and his conversion from atheism to Catholicism in his 30s meant he would become one of the most creative and prolific minds the Church ever saw. Dale Ahlquist is a foremost disciple of Chesterton and has introduced thousands to his delightful (and unique) way of seeing the world. 

Come join us in listening to him speak at Radius TONIGHT at 7:30pm. Cash bar, free appetizers, and a full Radius menu available!​

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University (www.emporia.edu) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  There will be a notification sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  There will be no notification if the University is to remain open.

The prediction for tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018) is for the chance for snow starting up during the day and continuing through the evening and very early morning. The prediction is from a trace to possibly 4 inches.  We are on the line.  There will be crews out when this snow event starts to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Crews will continue to work as needed through the evening and early Wednesday morning to clear and treat of roads, parking lots and walks.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331). You can view Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf

Even with cleared walks and entrances, everyone should take extreme care due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after the event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or arrange with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event. ​

Influenza continues to be a significant issue in the community and on campus.  These reminders may help you/others stay well:

1. Avoid close contact.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

2. Stay home when you are sick.

If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others.

3. Cover your mouth and nose.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.

4. Clean your hands.

Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

6. Practice other good health habits.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.

 

The Centers for Disease Control is encouraging use of anti-viral medication, especially in those who are at high risk for complications.  If you have sudden onset of fever, body aches, and cough and suspect it may be influenza, please contact your healthcare provider right away as anti-viral medications need to be started early.  Students with these symptoms may call for an appointment with Health Services or utilize the walk-in clinic from 2 to 4 pm Monday through Friday.

 

Also, remember it is not too late to get vaccinated!  Health Services has a limited number of doses left; you can make an appointment by calling 620-341-5222.

​This influenza season is shaping up to be a more severe one than we've had in the past several years.  The Emporia community is following state and national trends with increases in the numbers of people ill with influenza, and it is affecting our campus community as well.  With class back in session, please keep these prevention tips in mind:

1. Avoid close contact.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

2. Stay home when you are sick.

If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others.

3. Cover your mouth and nose.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.

4. Clean your hands.

Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

6. Practice other good health habits.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.

The Centers for Disease Control is encouraging use of anti-viral medication, especially in those who are at high risk for complications.  If you have sudden onset of fever, body aches, and cough and suspect it may be influenza, please contact your healthcare provider right away as anti-viral medications need to be started early.  Students with these symptoms may call for an appointment with Health Services or utilize the walk-in clinic from 2 to 4 pm Monday through Friday.​

Also, remember it is not too late to get vaccinated!  Health Services has a limited number of doses left; you can make an appointment by calling 620-341-5222.

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University (www.emporia.edu) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  A notification will be sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  No notification will be given if the University is to remain open.

A reminder that during inclement weather conditions the campus community should either listen to KVOE AM radio station (1400) or  Kansas Public Radio; or  watch KWCH , WIBW, KSNT or KTKA television stations; or access the home page for the University (www.emporia.edu) for a possible closing of the University due to inclement weather.  A notification will be sent only if there is a closing to be announced and the University's Text/Email Emergency Notification System will be activated (for those who have this service).  No notification will be given if the University is to remain open.

The prediction for this storm is from a trace to 2 inches of snow with the possibility of freezing drizzle or rain over the next 24 to 36 hours. There will be crews out when this ice/snow event starts to keep roads and sidewalks cleared.  Other crews will be coming in at 4:00 a.m. on Friday to start the clearing and treatment of roads, parking lots and walks.

During the weather event, also be aware that crews from the Academic, Residential and Memorial Union facilities will be working and treating around their respective buildings and entrances. Please report any trouble areas to the University Facilities Office (5331). Snow Removal Maps indicating the priority and stages of work can be viewed at http://www.emporia.edu/alerts/documents/campus_snow_removal_map.pdf

Even with cleared walks and entrances, extreme care should be taken due to continual thawing and freezing cycles occurring during and after the event.  Persons with mobility restrictions should take extreme precautions and request assistance (call Facilities @ 341-5331) if needed or make arrangements with their departments to remain at home.  Everyone should take extra time and be extra careful during and after the weather event. ​

Come and see what’s going on at Albert Taylor Hall this week!

Wednesday, January 10th

Event: Dinosaurs Live

Details: Presented by the Emporia Arts Center the Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE guides your family on a breathtaking tour through pre-historic Australia.  You’ll observe, meet and interact with an eye-popping collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures presented in a theatrical performance that will thrill and entertain kids while stimulating their imaginations in ways that will forever connect them to their world.  Brought to life by a team of skilled performers and puppeteers, and designed with the help of professional paleontologists, Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE’s puppets are so extraordinarily realistic you may feel the urge to run and hide – but don’t!  Because you won’t want to miss a minute of this fun, unique, entertaining and educational live show created by Erth Visual & Physical of Sydney, Australia.  While it may indeed have been 65 million years in the making, we think you’ll agree, it’s well worth the wait.

Congratulations to the Art Department, winners of the 2017 Stingers Up Award! The department will receive prize of $1,500 sponsored by Voya.

The Art Department was nominated for embodying the Emporia State's values of respect and service.

 At ESU, the value of Respect means welcoming diversity, as well as the encouraging freedom of thought and expression. Throughout the nominations, the Art Department was described as fostering personal growth in students, as well as faculty, by providing a safe and inclusive environment for self-expression. Students in the department feel comfortable to express their feelings through their art, without fear of being judged. One nominator stated, "Art is all about freedom of expression and thought, and this department exemplifies that to the fullest degree."

The university values service, defined by engagement in leadership and community that positively impacts our global society. One nomination described how the faculty in the Art Department "promote in-depth thinking among the students when considering the impact their art can have on the community and the world around them." However, the department does more than just think about it; they turn those thoughts into action by engaging in multiple community events. A few examples include the students in ceramics classes who donate bowls to the Empty Bowls Project of Wichita (a grassroots movement to end hunger), and hosting visiting artists and other events designed to teach arts to the community.

The Art Department is a great example of what it means to be a part of Hornet Nation, and we are proud to present them with the 2017 Stingers Up Award.

Stingers Up!

​Good afternoon,

IT will be rolling out the latest version of Symantec antivirus software tomorrow, Wednesday, December 20, 2017.  In order to remain compliant with our Symantec licensing, we are providing this update to all university computers.  Beginning at 7:00 am, computers will begin to receive the update.  Not all computers will receive the update at the same time.  If you are on campus, and have your computer turned on, you should get the update installer.  Here is what will happen:

  • You may get a prompt asking to allow the app to make changes to your computer.

If you get this prompt (although not everyone will-it's OK if you don't), be sure to click "Yes"

  • Then you will see an installer (everyone will see this) with a green progress bar.
  • Once the installer box disappears you will need to re-boot your computer. 

If you do not reboot at the end of the day after the installer has run, YOU WILL NOT HAVE ANTI-VIRUS PROTECTION.   The installer completes after the re-booting your computer.   If you are away from your desk and your computer is in sleep or screen-saver mode, the installer will still run.  To determine if the installer ran, check the icons in the system tray, lower right corner of your computer.  If you see the yellow Symantec shield, the installer has not run.  If the shield is missing, the installer has finished, and you need to re-boot to complete the installation on your computer.

If you are away from campus, and do not have your computer turned on, the update will run when it is powered on the next day you are on campus.

Note:  MAC users will not receive the update during this process – this installer is for PC computers.  We will be sending information about the MAC version after the winter break.

The main thing to remember is to re-boot your computer at the end of the day on Wednesday.  If you have any questions, please contact the Help Desk at 341-5555.​

Thanks!

​Students — news releases about scholarship awards will be sent to your local media this week. You will receive an email when your news has been shared.

Every year, there is confusion, so I'm hopeful this will clear it up. The awards being publicized are for the CURRENT school year — 2017-18. You already have been notified of these awards through Financial Aid. You should have written thank-you notes for them during the fall semester.

Just a gentle reminder — the winter break is a great time to get your information together to apply for scholarships for the NEXT year, 2018-19. Some scholarships have application deadlines in February and March, so you could work on them now before classes begin again. For more information about scholarship opportunities, go to http://www.emporia.edu/finaid/scholarships/

If you have questions about your news releases, please contact Gwen Larson at glarson1@emporia.edu or 620-341-5528.

Calling all Faculty and Graduate Teaching Assistants who want to improve their course design skills and/or Canvas knowledge. The Online Readiness Course (ORC) begins January 8th.  This course rigorously explores all the Canvas tools necessary to take a course you have already taught in a face-to-face environment and redesign it with the online learner in mind.

As a student in ORC, you will progress through the following Modules:

  1. Module 1: Orientation. Checking your tech prerequisites; getting to know each other; introducing the Principles of Online Pedagogy (POP) framework.
  2. Module 2: Designing Your Environment. Your classroom is a place, not a filing cabinet! Careful user experience (UX) design helps your online space actively encourage student engagement.
  3. Module 3: Designing Your Content. From pedagogical considerations like active learning and universal design, to tech considerations like choosing appropriate media types, this module focuses on creating course content that fits the online environments you're using.
  4. Module 4: Interacting. Instructor presence and community-building are important, and work differently online than in a physical space. Developing your presence and baseline habits is crucial to success.
  5. Module 5: Revising, Iterating, and Troubleshooting. Responding quickly and effectively to the unexpected is a critical skill for any online instructor.

There are no texts to purchase. All readings, media and all other required materials will be provided within the course!

Each Assignment contains the materials required for you to complete it successfully. In addition, every Module contains further readings to deepen your understanding of the principles and practices you've encountered. At the end of the course, you will be awarded a Digital Badge through our Hornet Badges portal.

Please email Dr. Anna Catterson acatters@emporia.edu if interested in enrolling!

The mission of FEA is to increase access to international education and, as such, it gives scholarship preference to minority amd first-generation college students. 

Application Requirements. FEA scholarships require applicants to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident students who are currently enrolled as an undergraduate at a college or university in the U.S.; graduate students are not eligible. The study abroad program must be eligible for credit at the student's educational institution, and it must include at least four weeks in-country. The application deadline is 11:59 pm EST January 10, 2018.
