|Microsoft Scholarship Program|
Microsoft awards college tuition scholarships each year to encourage students to pursue studies in Computer Science and related STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) disciplines. Recipients will be awarded in recognition of their demonstrated passion for technology, academic excellence and leadership while working to push the software industry forward. We strongly encourage underrepresented groups to pursue STEM fields of study. Because we greatly value a broad range of perspectives and contributions, a large majority of our scholarships will be awarded to female students, underrepresented minority students (African-American, Hispanic or Native American etc.) or students with disabilities. The application deadline is January 30, 2016. For more information click on the link below. Interested students should contact Aparna Das at firstname.lastname@example.org.

|New Online Way to Request Event, Classroom Space, and Vans|
Event Management and the Registrar’s Office are excited to roll out a new way for the campus community to view the academic/event calendar and submit classroom and event requests. An additional feature is an online van request. These new features will enable you to view and schedule what rooms and vans are available through Astra scheduler at any time. Type https://astra.lemoyne.edu into your internet search engine or go to the portal under Online Resources and click on Event Request Forms. Both ways should redirect you to open Astra. The login is located in the upper right hand corner of the screen; use your Le Moyne network user name and password to gain access. Note – in order to request space and services you must be logged into Astra, otherwise you will only be able to view as a guest. The Astra software is web based so it will work anywhere, you do not have to be on campus to logon. Here is a brief functionality rundown of the tabs you will be using: ASTRA HOME: Lists holidays and announcements (this page is currently blank we are working on populating it) CALENDARS: When checking to see if a space is available you want to click on the Calendars tab and below that click on the Scheduling Grid. On the left you will see a box with today’s date. You enter your desired date and click the green arrow to process or you can use the calendar box in the top middle of the page, just click on a date and it will process automatically. You will find the time (in hour increments) across the top of the grid and the rooms down the left side. Green denotes regularly scheduled classes and yellow are meetings and events. If you wave your cursor over an event or section, it will open up an info box with event/course details. For a more user friendly calendar view, you can remove some of the columns on the left like: type, building and campus. I prefer my settings to be just room and capacity. EVENTS: This is the location to submit the following electronic Event Request Forms. Here are the various forms to choose from: Faculty/Staff Classroom Request Form Faculty/Staff Event Request Form Library Request Form Student Event/Classroom Request Form Van Request Form When filing out your request forms anything that has an * is a required field. Remember this is a request and the room, date or time may not be available; if this is the case you will be notified. When everything is complete, click submit at the top of the screen. It will stop you if you don’t complete a required field. Just go back and complete the question and click submit again. When an electronic request is submitted properly, you will receive a PDF confirmation that the request has been received and will be reviewed; however this is not your event confirmation form. When it is reviewed and approved (or denied for any reason) you will also receive a PDF email listing the status. For approved Events you will receive a PDF titled “Notification of Event Request Approved with Summary” or "Notification of Event Summary.” We will be offering training on the system with dates and times to be announced. This gives you the opportunity to preview the software and become familiar with the new look of our academic/event calendar. Contact Lisa Morgan in Event Management at ext. 4393 with any questions, or if you need help walking through the process.
