Put a Face to that Name!

Congratulations on finishing the third full week of classes this semester!  I’m sure many of you are beginning to form groups for your various courses or are trying to remember the names and faces of those you met at orientation.  To help with this process and to assist the faculty in connecting with each of you, we encourage everyone to upload their photo via My Places on Blackboard.   If you require assistance, review the instructions to edit personal information on My Places in Blackboard.
