Proofreading is an ongoing challenge for most writers, especially when reviewing our own work. Because we know what we mean to say, our brains often autocorrect for typos. And a spellcheck won’t catch some of the most common typos: a missing word, a wrong word that’s spelled correctly or the right word that’s in the wrong place.

Our brand is very robust, and we understand that it’s a lot to take in. For some, simply having a print-out to refer to is helpful, and as a result we’ve made two printable PDFs for quick reference.

Photos, templates and icons are added all the time to the university’s brand downloads. While notifications can’t be sent out whenever something gets updated, it is possible to see the latest additions to the downloads.

For example, we’ve added some new icons this past month. Go into one of the subject folders and arrange them by date by selecting ‘Updated’ above the list. Now you can see the most recent files we’ve added.

We’ll send out monthly updates on what’s been added to the downloads, but it never hurts to check often. Thank you and good luck.

 

If you find you’re stuggling with too many folders in your ‘All Files’ in Box, there is a quick solution to make favorites and only use the folders most relevant to you.

 

First, click the ‘More Options’ icon next to any folder, and select ‘Favorite’ on the drop-down. Your favorites can be found off to the left-hand sidebar to view your favorites. For even quicker access, you can create a bookmark in your browser for your Favorites folder, so you can bypass ‘All Files’ completely.
