Learning Resource Center Tip of the Week: BE FLEXIBLE!

The details… This week’s tip is simply a reminder that when the inevitable “unexpected” happens (sickness, car troubles, etc.) responsibilities (work, studio projects, written essays, exam prep) do not stop. In other words, you need to be able to fit the unexpected into your schedule. When the unexpected starts to mess with your schedule (or if you want to plan ahead), stop in the Learning Resource Center to learn how to rearrange your schedule (so it doesn’t’ manage you – you manage it). Learning practical strategies for being flexible includes knowing who to ask for help. Don’t be shy.

Email Spam – Tax Time

To the MIAD community…

Since it’s tax time and everyone has the IRS and money on their minds you’re likely to receive email spam trying to take advantage of this.

If you receive anything via email claiming to be from the IRS, the State of Wisconsin Department of Revenue or any other organization or government entity do NOT simply respond and hand over your personal information. None of these organizations will communicate with you via email unless you’ve contacted them first.

And even if you have been in contact with them about your case, be VERY careful to read who these messages are really from. None of these organizations will ask for personal information via email. When in doubt always call the office in question and speak with a human about what concerns you.

Caveat emptor, don’t take any wooden nickels and remember: wherever you go, there you are.
