29 Staff Recognition Category: Good News About ITaP ITNS staffer receives kudos for help with Summer Transition, Advising, and Registration program. Andrew K. Koch, Director of Student Access, Transition and Success Programs wrote the following about Doug Magers' help with their summer transition, Advising, and Registration program: "I write to thank you for the help you provided to guarantee the success of the Summer Transition, Advising, and Registration program. Your efforts with establishing and maintaining daily network connections at our welcome locations in STEW and the Hall of Music enabled us to efficiently and professionally check-in more than 6,000 new freshmen and transfer students over the 18 days of the program. You were diligently present at 6 a.m. each morning, and when the system was working without a hitch (all the time) you pitched in with other tasks (bag distribution, greeting, etc.) to make sure that the whole check-in process was smooth. You went above-and-beyond the call of duty – never leaving something unaddressed because it was “not your job.” For your efforts, my SATS colleagues and I have elected you to the “Pantheon of STAR All-Stars” – an organization founded and funded by Dan Carpenter. (So far you are the only person enshrined in this august group.) Doug, my colleagues and I are indebted to you for your service and support. Thanks for all you did to help the University’s newest students start their college experiences in positive and productive manners. We look forward to working with you in the not-to-distant future when we begin to plan for STAR 2010. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the summer."

33 ITNS TOP TEN LIST 10."Oh! You work for ITaP?! You can solve ALL of my problems!" quote from one Purdue staff person. Oh if only we could!! 9.You can’t just plug a phone into any phone jack and expect it to work – have to have a live jack and the jack owns the phone number, not your phone. 8.We love to make you change your password!! It may help prevent hackers or others from compromising your machine or data. So we practice safe principles. 7.“I should be able to do anything on the networked computers 24/7/ 365 days of the year.” Sorry, but we just aren’t staffed to manage that and there are scheduled times we must do maintenance. 6.Please, just “Don’t click” on embedded links in emails. 33

34 ITNS TOP TEN LIST CONT. 5.“Why should I care about security?” We try to inform you but we can not make you practice safe computer behavior on the internet, email or instant messaging. 4.Keep operating system and anti-virus patches updated on all machines 3.ITNS helps faculty, staff, & students get and stay connected securely. (via LAN, WAN, internet, phones, pagers, PAL, etc.) 2. Don’t Google your Social Security Number!!!! That stays in the documents searched on for anyone else to see. 1.Purdue will NEVER send an email message asking users to reply with a password or other confidential personal information such as Social Security numbers or bank account numbers. Messages requesting such information are fraudulent and should be deleted 34
