Health and Wellness
10.) Let’s Talk Lunch / Health & Lifestyle Series
Noon Feb. 20 Cultural Center, Belknap Campus
Free
You’re designed to move: Overcoming barriers to regular exercise. Need an emotional lift? Or need to blow off some steam after a stressful day? A workout at the gym or a brisk 30-minute walk can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. Our bodies are designed to move! But with homework, a job, family, extracurricular activities, and not to mention studying, fitting in exercise seems impossible!
Additional Information: Jeremy Johnson, Dana Carpenter

Information Technology
11.) Do you use PeopleSoft? Menus changing March 2
PeopleSoft users will notice changes to menu location and functionality beginning March 2. The major change is the location of the main menu, which will shift from its left-hand location to a horizontal location along the top of your screen. The new menu tab structure will feature drop-down menus, and a “breadcrumb” trail at the top to help you track your location within the application. See changes (opens as PDF).
Additional Information: Video demonstration

Miscellaneous
12.) Green Tip: A simple way to cut paper use in half
The best way to reduce our environmental impact and save money isn’t by changing what we consume, but reducing how much we waste. If you must print, remember that a blank side of paper is a waste. Cut paper use in half by printing or copying on both sides. This option is available on many campus machines and can be set up as the default or selected for individual print jobs. A manual option is printing odd-numbered pages and then using the bypass feeder for even-numbered pages (or for single-sided scrap paper).
