to the High Point University Family Dear Student, You are extraordinary and you have chosen an extraordinary institution. Now that you are a member of the HPU family, let me explain the power behind the HPU promise and what it means for you. Our promise to you and your parents is simple: At High Point University, every student receives an extraordinary SM education in an inspiring environment with caring people. As HPU faculty and staff, we are obligated to honor this promise. However, the success of the “HPU Experience” is based on the idea that we see not an obligation, but an opportunity. We see the opportunity to promote “learning” as a life-long endeavor to be relished! We see the opportunity to prepare you for a life of success and significance. We see the opportunity to model the values of service, generosity, gratitude, fellowship and joy. High Point University is an EXTRAORDINARY institution, an INSPIRING institution, and a CARING institution because each member of our faculty and staff is passionate about the opportunity we have to positively impact your life. While faculty and staff are here to help you on your journey, remember that this is a partnership. To succeed, you will need to work hard, prepare, study, give back, and commit to purposeful collaboration with your faculty mentors and fellow students. We will support you on your journey, but your choices will determine your path. When you arrive in a few weeks, challenge yourself to meet every moment with the “spirit” of opportunity. Challenge yourself to live by our call to action: Be Extraordinary!SM Welcome home. Welcome to High Point University!

Further information about these testing sessions will be provided to you each semester by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness.

Dining Dollars supplement the weekly meal allowance and may be used in all dining service locations on campus, except 1924 PRIME Steakhouse. The dining dollar amount is per semester and does not transfer from semester to semester. For details visit extra.highpoint.edu/usage.php.

CASHLESS CAMPUS & THE PASSPORT CARD GENERAL ACCOUNT:

The “HPU Cashless Campus” model ensures that our students are able to enjoy the extraordinary services we provide for their exclusive use in a safe and secure environment. The Passport Card is the only form of payment accepted on campus. Students will need to use their HPU Passport Card when hosting family and friends. The Passport Card also contains a “General Account.” The General Account funds may be used at all dining locations on campus, the campus bookstore or at any of our 80+ Passport Partner locations throughout the city of High Point. Students can add funds to their Passport Card General Account through their MyStuff account when they are selecting their Meal Plan. Students and parents may make cash and credit/debit card deposits to the Passport card by using one of our “Passport ATM” machines located throughout campus or at www.community.highpoint.edu. *For more details on Cashless Campus and the General Account, please contact concierge@highpoint.edu.

We want your dining experience at High Point University to be extraordinary! With 13 dining venues located throughout campus, students have a variety of menu options to suit their palettes. We also recognize that many students have specific dietary needs that often require specially prepared items. In order to make these items easily identifiable, we have developed several dining icons (shown below). These icons are used to label unique food items at all 13 of our dining venues. If you would like to discuss your dietary needs, please contact the Hospitality Team at:

Vehicle Registration Incoming students that wish to have a vehicle on campus must register their vehicle online. In order to register your vehicle for the 2013-2014 academic year, please go to the HPU Blackboard Community website (https://community.highpoint. edu) and click on the vehicle registration button.

To log in and register you will use your network username and password. While there, you should review the updated parking regulations. You will have two decals to display. The large one on the back of the vehicle and the small, front decal is now to be displayed on the top center of the windshield (so it may be seen from both sides).

Please bring your vehicle registration on Saturday, August 17 to the Security tables located on the main level of University Center behind the waterfall in order to obtain your parking decal. If you need assistance with registering your vehicle, please call Information Technology at (336) 841-4357.


Information Technology

O r i e n tat i o n 2013 | highpoint.edu

HelpDesk

Blackboard

Passwords

The Office of Information Technology offers services for students that need assistance with just about anything related to technology.

Once enrolled in courses, students will be given access to Blackboard, which is the course management software that High Point University uses to supplement the delivery of additional materials and resources for courses.

Each student at High Point University will receive a username and password that will be required to access a host of applications on campus, including Webmail, Blackboard, and MyStuff.

At High Point University, we understand that students rely heavily on technology for a number of daily activities, including their academics, communication, research, community involvement, and socialization. It is the mission of the HelpDesk to ensure that the technology functions when students need it most.

Faculty post materials, including syllabi, reading assignments, review questions, and website links, to each corresponding course offered on Blackboard.

Our services include: • personal computer assistance • wireless network access • cable TV • telephone services • mobile device support • campus email • software support • password assistance Students may also call the HelpDesk at (336) 841-4357 or email the Help Desk at helpdesk@highpoint.edu. For more information on this and other topics, please visit our website at http://www.highpoint.edu/it.

• Extends the classroom • Centralizes materials pertinent to a course • Gives students the ability to access additional course materials regardless of the time of day or the availability of peers • Leverages the web to deliver important course information before students arrive in class • Serves as a resource in the event that a class is canceled • Enables faculty to post materials on a given topic without requiring students to locate the resource individually In addition, Blackboard can be accessed through a Facebook application called Blackboard Sync, as well as on mobile devices with the Bb Learn application (for iPhones). To visit Blackboard, check out http://blackboard.highpoint.edu.

MyStuff MyStuff is the central campus portal on High Point University’s network that gives students access to grades, course registration, housing selection, important financial information, and a number of other personal elements specific to a student’s academic experience and time on campus. Need to see if a class is available for next semester? Check MyStuff. Want to make a payment against a student’s account? Payments can be made through MyStuff. Staying on campus over Fall Break? Alert Student Life through MyStuff by filling out a campus housing request form. At High Point University, we strive to make the experience of the student central to our mission. MyStuff extends this service into the cloud and empowers the student to complete a host of tasks throughout the course of the year. For access to MyStuff, check out http://mystuff.highpoint.edu.

The passwords for Webmail and Blackboard will be the same. This is the student’s main campus username and password combination, and it can be used for additional services, including checking the balance on the HPU Passport card, logging into computer labs on campus, registering for housing, and accessing library resources. A number of systems on campus require the use of the default username and password authentication. For each system, the username will remain consistent. The MyStuff password is initially set to a PIN number. After the first login, the password can be changed. This password should be unique since the MyStuff account contains important personal data. To learn more visit http://support.highpoint.edu. To reset a password, visit http://passwordreset.highpoint.edu.

WEB Security Students should be cautious of the types of content downloaded while on the web. Viruses and other malicious programs (known as spyware/malware) result from visiting certain websites, downloading software, plugging in portable drives, and often clicking on links in suspicious emails. At High Point University, students are encouraged to maintain an active anti-virus software subscription, which helps prevent these types of unwanted attacks.

A few quick tips for safe usage:

• Always make sure that emails are coming from a trusted source before downloading attachments or following links • If a file looks suspicious, it most likely is. • Peer-to-peer (P2P) sharing software, such as Limewire, and file sharing websites, such as uTorrent, can contain hidden malicious software embedded within.

Additional resources on security and safe browsing practices can be found on the Office of Information Technology website at http://www.highpoint.edu/it.


Email Every High Point University student receives a unique email address that will become the only account for official High Point University communication. Monitor this account closely for campus announcements, billing information, academic messages, and other important information.

Students have the ability to access their email on or off-campus, including from a mobile device, through a web browser, or by configuring the client application of choice.
