FALL BACK!



Daylight Saving Time ends and reverts to standard time on Sunday, November 2. Clocks are moved backward by one hour at 2:00 AM daylight savings time, and the time becomes 1:00 AM standard time. The National Fire Prevention Association and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommend that consumers change the battery in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when they change their clocks.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT STUDENT EMAILS



There seems to be some confusion as to what a student’s email address is in the new Microsoft 365 system. It is the same as before; this has not changed. Your email address will always be the first initial of the first name, followed by the entire last name, followed by @student.goodwin.edu. So, for Dan Rego, the student email would be drego@student.goodwin.eduKeep in mind that if there are multiple people with the same name, there may be a number before the @ sign, like drego1@student. The ONLY time you will need your SonisWeb ID, like DR5548662@student.goodwin.edu, is when you are signing onto the O365 site, but it is NOT your email address. If you need further assistance, please contact the Goodwin College Helpdesk at 860-727-6743 or stop into the IT office in room 136 of the main building.
