Plan to attend Community Day on Aug. 28

All employees are encouraged to attend Community Day on Tuesday, Aug. 28 from 9-10:30 a.m. in the Calvin and Janet High Center for Worship and Performing Arts. This annual Messiah tradition serves as the ceremonial launch of the new academic year for employees with opportunities for corporate worship and fellowship, as well as the presentation of the president’s State of the College address. Refreshments will be available after the gathering from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in front of Climenhaga (rain location is Howe Atrium, Boyer Hall). All offices and departments (with the exception of Dispatch and the Early Learning Center) will close from 8:45-11:30 a.m. to allow employees to attend the gathering and reception. If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Cohen, executive assistant to the president, at mcohen@messiah.edu.

Employee choir at Community Day

The employee ‘OK Chorale’ will make a return to this year’s Community Day service, to be held on Tuesday, Aug. 28. We hope to once again share ‘Total Praise’ with the community, and will hold a brief rehearsal the Monday prior to Community Day (time and location TBD). No audition is necessary, and if you love to sing, we’d love to have you join us! To register your interest, ask any pertinent questions, and receive music in advance of the rehearsal, please email Douglas Curry at dcurry1@messiah.edu. Hope you can join us!

Welcoming international and multicultural students

The Intercultural Office will be welcoming incoming new international and multicultural students to campus this year in two overlapping orientations:

• International Student Orientation will begin on Monday, Aug. 27 for incoming international, missionary and third culture students.

• Multicultural Student Orientation will begin on Thursday, Aug. 30 for incoming domestic underrepresented students.

Research and best practice indicate that students thrive when they have a sense of belonging. Recognizing some of the unique challenges our underrepresented and international students face on a majority white campus, these orientations offer the opportunity for these students to begin to build connections with each other and foster a sense of belonging with our broader campus community prior to participating in Welcome Week activities on Friday. If you have questions about these orientations, please contact the Intercultural Office at Intercultural@messiah.edu or ext. 2131.

There are two new wireless networks available NOW that you should begin using before the old ones are turned off. “Messiah Secure” – Employees and students should use this network to ensure access to everything you need using encrypted communications. Most Windows-based computers owned by the College should automatically use this network but some may not be automatic so please check. Mac computers and mobile devices will NOT automatically change. Information on how to connect Windows, Chromebook, MacOS, iOS and Android devices are in the following blog article: http://blogs.messiah.edu/its/question/connecting-to-messiahs-wireless-network. “Messiah Guest” – Intended for guests to campus who only need basic internet access. It will require checking a box to agree to Messiah policies every 24 hours. It cannot be used to access college resources such as Canvas, self-service, Banner, Unimarket, etc. If college services are needed, connect to Messiah Secure instead. The two networks above are replacing MC-WPA and MC-Open which will be no longer be available following this schedule: Monday, Aug. 13.

Windows 10 update required

This is for employees that currently have Windows 10 (Windows 10 has a white flag in the bottom left corner.) Because Microsoft is now doing Windows 10 updates every 12 to 18 months, we need to do what they call a Feature 10 Update, which is a lot bigger than a normal Windows update.

How do you know if you need this update? After determining that you have Windows 10, you will go to the Start button, then select Settings (little gear icon) > System > About. If the version is NOT 1803, you will need to run this update. We will have this Feature update available in Microsoft Software Center for you to install starting today and going through Aug. 6. On Aug. 7, this Feature Update will install on your machine automatically, if you have not done so already. Once it is done installing, it will ask you to restart, or it may restart your machine automatically. During the installation, you may continue to work on your machine. After restarting, you may have a 15 to 30 minute time period that you will be unable to do any work on your machine. You may see your machine restart multiple times and will know when it is done, when it comes back to the login screen. After you login, it will run through several screens saying it is setting up Windows for you. This may take approximately five minutes. After that is done, you should be good to go. We recommend you do this Feature 10 Update while on campus with a wired network connection. If you are unable complete this update while on campus, you may connect to OpenVPN and run the install that way, but it will take considerably longer to do so. For more details on this installation process go to this ITS Blog post: http://blogs.messiah.edu/its/archives/9348 Please remember to check the computers assigned to student employees.
