Update your computers for Daylight-saving time
Daylight-saving time begins Sunday, March 11. The change means computers must have the latest updates. Because daylight-saving time starts three weeks earlier than usual, all computers need to have their software updated before March 11. Windows PC or Mac operating systems that are set for automatic updates may not require anything more. In addition, check and update handheld devices such as Palm, Blackberry and Treo, among others, to verify that the newest software is in the device. Check for the latest software update. For additional assistance or help with questions, call the Help Desk at 368-HELP(4357).
During the transition period following the Branding Task Group's recommendations regarding the university's logo and nomenclature, the members of the campus community should continue with the current branding guidelines and work with University Marketing and Communications for consultation on future publications or creative needs. In writing and editing, on first reference, refer to the university as "Case Western Reserve University." In subsequent references, "Case" -- rather than "CWRU or "Case Western" -- is appropriate. In headlines, refer to the university as "Case Western Reserve University" or "Case" and not "CWRU" or "Case Western." When referring to the engineering school, it is all right to use "Case School of Engineering" because it is a named school.
Tune in to WCPN 90.3-FM at noon on Thursday, March 8 to hear a conversation with author-humorist Richard Lederer, the keynote speaker for the 2007 commencement at the university. Dee Perry hosts Around Noon.
