UNC Sustainable Bears: Tip of the Week

Cooling savings is hot! Raise the cooling set point on the thermostat in your room/office by 4 degrees, 4 hours a day throughout the month. If every member of campus did this, it would result in $3,850 of utility savings this week. Remember to visit UNC's People.Power.Planet site to learn more ways to save.

Save the Date: Bear Pantry Pizza Palooza

To celebrate the success of its April campuswide donation drive to benefit the Bear Pantry, PASC will host a pizza party 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, June 7, at Roma Restaurant's campus location at 728 16th St. The event is free and open to all.

The drive generated seven 65-gallon bins of donated food and toiletries, plus $250 in cash that will be used to buy additional items for students in need. The competition between Central Campus and West Campus to collect the most donations ended in a tie.

PASC thanks everyone who helped make the drive a success.

Student-Employee Accounts Expire May 31

All student-employee computer accounts (firstname.lastname@unco.edu) are set to expire May 31. If you have student-employees who will be working through the summer and would like their account access extended through Aug. 31, email Technical Support with the students' first and last names (e.g., John Doe). You don't need to submit a PDID form to extend student-employee accounts.

Additionally, include the names of students who are no longer working for your department with the word "Delete" (e.g., John Doe - Delete) so their access to employee resources can be removed. If you have new student employees who will start working in the summer, you will need to submit a PDID online at help.unco.edu.

Please don't include students' Bear Numbers in the account extension and deletion requests.

Please note that this does not include GA/TA, Faculty or Staff accounts or any student-employee accounts created in April or May.

If you have any questions, contact Technical Support, 351-4357.
