1.  Get Involved – Join the University Honors College Council

The Faculty Senate University Honors College Council (UHCC) has openings for at least two University Honors College students. Information about the UHCC is available online at http://oregonstate.edu/senate/committees/uhcc/index.html or you may contact the Faculty Senate at 737-4344. If you are interested in serving on the UHCC, please submit a completed ASOSU Committee Application Form (available online at http://asosu.oregonstate.edu/committees at the bottom of the page) to the ASOSU Office – 149 Snell Hall. The Faculty Senate values the student perspective and welcomes your participation.


2. Share your Blog!

If you are blogging about research, academic activities or study abroad experiences we would love to put a link to your blog from the UHC web site.  Send the URL for your blog to gildha.cumming@oregonstate.edu and we will add it to our UHC student blog page.


3.  Remember to conserve paper in the SLUG

Everyone loves printing for free in the SLUG, but this freedom comes with the responsibility to print wisely and conservatively.  Some tips for saving paper:

  1. Always print double-sided.  This is not a default setting and needs to be adjusted manually (a SLUG staff member can help set this up if you don’t know how).  But then – presto! – paper usage is immediately cut in half.
  2. Don’t send the same job repeatedly to a backed up or broken printer.  Each one of those requests will come through when the printer is back online.  If your print request doesn’t work, wait a little while; if it still doesn’t work, tell the SLUG staffer.
  3. Finally, think before you print: don’t print a whole textbook if you only need 20 pages.  Checking the print dialogue box or using print preview can help cut down on unnecessary printing.

The printers, your peers, and the planet will all appreciate it if you keep these tips in mind.  Thank you and happy printing!

All SLUG computers are specifically coded for UHC students and do not charge for printing. The SLUG is located in STAG basement, room 30. 


4.  URISC has money to support your research, innovations, or creative efforts!
