ITS Announces New System, Campus Pipeline, for Student E-mail, Information
ITS Announces New System, Campus Pipeline, for Student E-mail, InformationCampus Pipeline is now available for Truman students, faculty and staff. The site provides students with Web-based e-mail and the University community can access campus announcements and news. As the SCT Banner implementation project continues, Campus Pipeline will provide students, faculty, advisers and staff access to many online functionalities. For example, students will be able to register for classes using Campus Pipeline in mid spring 2004 for the summer and fall 2004 semesters. Faculty will be able to view their class rosters as well as their teaching schedules online beginning in late fall 2003. Logon to Campus Pipeline and click on “School Services” to see the detailed list of functionalities.
Students should access their e-mail through the Campus Pipeline portal. Prior access to student e-mail accounts were available through Eudora and Webmail, a Web-based e-mail.
All incoming students have been taught the new method of e-mail. Campus Pipeline is accessible by directing your Internet browser to http://pipeline.truman.edu. Student usernames will remain the same, but their password will be reset to their social security number without spaces and dashes.
However, students will be able to log in to their old e-mail account at http://webmail.truman.edu with their old password throughout the fall semester in order to read or copy their e-mail messages or retrieve contact information. In order to keep old messages from their old account after this semester they will need to copy them to Campus Pipeline. Instructions for this can be found at http://its.truman.edu/pipeline/.
Students who currently have their Truman e-mail forwarded will have to re-forward their e-mail using Campus Pipeline.
For additional help or problems accessing the new account, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 785.4544 or e-mail them at email@example.com. Please send any comments, suggestions or concerns about Campus Pipeline to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Activities Fair Offers Organization InformationThe annual Student Activities Fair will kick off at noon, Aug. 28, on the Quadrangle. Students, new and returning, will be able to gather information and get a brief overview of what type of organizations exist at the University. Approximately 75 organizations and community vendors are expected to participate in the fair.
The Center for Student Involvement sponsors the Student Activities Fair yearly to provide an opportunity to gather information to develop a clearer picture of what activities match their individual interests. The fair will last until 4 p.m., enabling students to come and go as they please between classes. The Center for Student Involvement said organizations were able to sign up to be a part of activities day last spring, but they will still take applications and place organizations on a first come, first serve basis.
Sodexho food services and the Student Union Building will also hold events during the activities fair. Sodexho will be sponsoring the annual pingpong drop on the Quadrangle with free prizes and coupons to be won from the University, fast food restaurants and other vendors in the Kirksville community. The SUB will have an open house to get students acquainted with what services the Student Union Building offers for students.

The SERVE Center provides information about organizations that are looking for volunteers. It also assists volunteers in contacting someone involved in a particular project. Students can fill out an information sheet at the SERVE Center that allows the Center to notify a volunteer of an opportunity that appeals to their interests.
Upcoming opportunities available through the SERVE Center are tutoring at area schools and the Special Olympics Bowl-4-Gold on Oct. 26. This is the second year the SERVE Center has coordinated this event. Teams of five are needed to raise $25 per participant which will go to the success of the Special Olympics.
Another opportunity is to volunteer at the Family Advocacy Center. The Family Advocacy Center needs volunteers to assist with the after school program as well as one-time projects.

and KBIA, members of the Kirksville community are now receiving a stronger

ERP) that had been used in the past. This endeavor also gives Adair County
