8. Better Security for Public Access and Smart Classroom PCs
As part of an effort led by IT Services and the Instructional Media Center, specific PCs on campus will be managed via the network. This will allow for faster repair, more frequent updates and better security. Areas under central management can be found at online.
These computers are located in Smart Classrooms throughout campus, as well as in public spaces including: Brew Cudahy; Cudahy 108; the Brew Bayou; the Marquette Place in the AMU; and outside the Human Resources office in Straz Tower.
Please be aware of the following important notes regarding these computer:
1. You will need to log in with your eMarq username and password.
2. You should log off the PC when you have finished using it. (The computer will automatically log off after 30 minutes of inactivity in Smart Classrooms and 20 minutes of inactivity in public spaces.)
If you have questions or concerns throughout the fall term, please contact the IT Services Help Desk (8-7799).
9. Take advantage of services available at Student Health Service
As a Marquette student, you have access to a variety of health care services right here on campus. Some of the services available at the Student Health Service include: primary/acute care services, women’s health services, immunizations, TB testing, nutritional evaluation, STD testing and treatment, and allergy injections. Check out the Web site for a complete list of services.
The clinic is located in the lower level of the Schroeder Complex. Hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:30a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call 8-7184 to make an appointment.
10. Now there’s an easier way to track your degree progress
Don’t know how many credits you have – or how many more you need in your major in order to graduate? Don’t know if you are meeting all the requirements to earn your degree? Unsure of which courses you need to take for your major? Do you want to know what will happen if you switch majors?
For students who entered Marquette as new freshmen in fall of 2005 or later, there will soon be an easy way to track degree progress online. Degree Navigator is an interactive, online system that allows advisers and students to see what courses students have already taken, or are taking and what courses they still need to fulfill. This includes both core requirements and the requirements for a particular degree, major or minor. In addition, the program allows users to determine the impact on academic progress of various “what if” scenarios, such as changing majors or adding a minor.
Students will be able to log in through the CheckMarq home page. A number of reports will be available, including a student’s course history, a short progress report and a program status report with the number of courses and credits completed and a listing of courses and credits still required. Degree Navigator will offer visual, tabular and narrative explanations of program and degree requirements and student progress in meeting those requirements.
Degree Navigator was piloted last year, and all data for the 2005-06 and 2006-07 new freshmen has been entered. In coordination with the Committee on Academic Procedures (CAPS), training sessions for all advisers will be scheduled this fall so that Degree Navigator may be used as a tool for spring 2007 advising in November.
Degree Navigator is intended to complement, not replace, adviser-student meetings and college/school degree requirements. Students must still meet with their advisers as per their college policy and schedule. Graduation requirements are determined by the academic bulletin and conferences with advisers and clearance for graduation will continue to be determined by the college office, although Degree Navigator should reflect those requirements throughout your time at Marquette.
Go online more information about Degree Navigator.
11. University Ministry offers programs for graduate/professional students
University Ministry is offering several programs specifically for Marquette graduate and professional students this fall. Grad students are invited to Mass every Friday afternoon at 4:15 p.m. at the Joan of Arc Chapel, followed by TGIF. Two Saturday mornings of reflection at the AMU Chapel of the Holy Family will also be offered from 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 7 and Nov. 4. Information on how to sign up for the retreats will appear in future editions of News Briefs.
Graduate and professional students are also invited to be a part of faith-sharing groups: small Christian living, ecumenical Bible study, Ignatian spirituality and overall group spiritual direction. Group meetings begin after Sept. 5. University Ministry will also sponsor a Graduate/Professional Student MAP service trip to the Gulf Coast region over spring break.

Summer programs are also available in more than eight different countries.

14. Campus Kitchen seeks intern
