Google Apps for OSU – changes to ONID email

All student email accounts have been migrated to Google email.  You will need to login to http://oregonstate.edu/google to access your ONID email. You may also set up access to your  ONID email on their mobile devices using Google’s mobile apps.  You will not be  “new” email addresses as a result of this move, and you will still receive email sent to your @onid.orst.edu address. The email you send from Google Apps for OSU will use  your @onid.oregonstate.edu address.

This change gives you the benefits that Google Apps provide: a 30 GB mailbox, advanced tools and functionality, and anytime, anywhere access through Google’s mobile apps and web interface.

The OSU Computer Helpdesk will continue to support ONID email and they also support all of Google Apps for OSU. If you or the students you work with have questions, you may contact the Helpdesk at http://oregonstate.edu/is/tss/och.

More information may be obtain about Google Apps for OSU here:  http://oregonstate.edu/main/online-services/google-apps-for-osu/opt-in  and http://oregonstate.edu/main/online-services/google-apps-for-osu

Note that there have been some issues with students not getting emails; hopefully this will be fixed soon.  Remember that registration advising for Spring term will begin soon!  If you haven’t seen an email from your advisor please call them or stop by their office.

If you are a Renewable Materials student:
Spring term advising for Renewable Material majors will begin February 10.  David Smith will distribute his availability to all RM majors and post a sign-up sheet outside his office (RH 236).  First year students, and those with any special questions or issues, are encouraged to sign-up for 1-hour appointments.  All other RMs should plan for 30 minutes to go over winter term progress, assemble a spring term schedule, talk about summer internship plans, and pick up registration PINs.

If you are a Natural Resources or Recreation Resource Management student or in the OLD Forest Management program:
Laurie’s Spring term 2014 advising appointments for the original Forest Management, Natural Resources, and Recreation Resource Management students will start on Monday, Feb. 10th.     Please look for her email in your ONID accounts late-Jan/early-Feb; this will explain how to set up an appointment.  Or stop by Peavy Hall 211 early February and you’ll see advising sign-up sheets on the bulletin board outside her office.

If you are a FE, FE/CE, or Forestry student:
Sandy will start advising for Spring term next week, Jan. 21 – Jan. 24 for Pre- Forestry, Pro-Forestry, FOM, Pre and Pro FE, and Pre and Pro FE/CE students.  She will be away from the office from Feb. 19 to Mar. 17, so it is imperative to make your appointment early.   Sign-up sheets are now available, however PIN’s won’t be available for awhile.  Sandy will email the PIN’s to those students that come in for advising before they are available and they will also be available in the notes on MyDegrees.  Prior to your appointment please check your MyDegrees to verify that everything is up-to-date.

Google Apps for OSU

If you have not yet moved your ONID email over to Google Apps for OSU, please read below!

Students have been encouraged to opt in to Google since the start of Fall term, and the opt in period ends December 26th. At that point, any student who has not opted in will have their ONID mailbox moved automatically to Google between December 26th and 31st.

 

Following the change, students will need to login to http://oregonstate.edu/google to access their ONID email. Students may also set up access to their ONID email on their mobile devices using Google’s mobile apps.

 

Students are not getting “new” email addresses as a result of this move, and they will still receive email sent to their @onid.orst.edu address. The email they send from Google Apps for OSU will use their @onid.oregonstate.edu address. The bottom line is that you do not have to change the way you contact students via email.

 

This change gives students all the benefits that Google Apps provide: a 30 GB mailbox, advanced tools and functionality, and anytime, anywhere access through Google’s mobile apps and web interface.

 

The OSU Computer Helpdesk will continue to support ONID email and they also support all of Google Apps for OSU. If you or the students you work with have questions, you may contact the Helpdesk at http://oregonstate.edu/is/tss/och.

 

Regards,

The Google Implementation Team

Upcoming Employer Visits

As we make our way through Fall term and with winter slowly approaching, now is the time to visit Career Services in the basement of the Kerr Admin Building to get your resume and cover letters ready.  “Why now?” you may be asking.  Well, because in October Weyerhaeuser will be visiting campus for an information session and because Summit Forest Products and NW Hardwoods will be holding interviews in Peavy!  If you have an interest in learning more about these companies or perhaps even interviewing with them, you want to be sure your resume is updated and impressive.

Keep an eye on this blog and your ONID email for more information about visiting employers later in Fall term.  Generally we see many companies visiting us in November and January.  And before you know it it will be February and time for the SAF Student Chapter Job Fair were over 30 companies and agencies descend on Richardson Hall looking to hire our outstanding students.

Welcome! And Welcome Back!

Hello CoF students,

We hope you had a restful but fun and exciting summer.   Are you ready for Fall term?  Maybe not…  Well, if not, here are a few helpful hints to get you started.

Be sure to know the academic calendar and associated deadlines.  We do post these deadlines on the white board in Peavy Courtyard and in the SLC, but it’s great if you know where you can access the information any time of day or night.

The deadline to add and drop classes for Fall term is, as always, the end of the 2nd week of the term.  That’s October 11th this year.  But note that you do need departmental permission if you are going to add a class in the 2nd week of the term and not many programs/departments allow that so be sure to visit our office or your advisor if you have questions.

The SAF Student Chapter Job Fair is planned for early February.  Get a jump on things and visit the Career Services Center in the basement of the Kerr Admin Building during Fall term!  Practice your interview skills, brush up your resume, and check out their new program called The Career Trail.

The big news for us this summer is that we’ve moved!  Yes, the Student Services Office has relocated from Peavy 140 to Peavy 248.  You’ll find us right next to the SLC.  Stop by to say hi and meet our new staff.   Remember that Clay will have drop in hours each Monday from 10-12 and again on Thursday from 3-5 but that most, if not all, of your questions can be answered by the staff in the Student Services Office.

Our other big news is that a new advisor for the FE, FE/CE, FOM, and new Forestry (both options) programs has been hired!  Welcome, Sandy Jameson!  Sandy can be found in Peavy 204 and is ready and able to help you with your academic advising.   Sandy can also be reached at 541-737-8691 or sandy.jameson@oregonstate.edu.

Have a great term and please do check this blog each week for new information – and of course, don’t forget to read your Fernhopper Newsletter coming to your ONID email each week!
