If you visited Williamson Hall this week, you may have noticed some construction. The project to install stairs to replace the old escalators is underway. Workers are demolishing concrete fins on the walls; installation of steel support for stairs will follow. During construction, the 160 suite door located at the base of the old escalator will be out of service and the door will be barricaded.
Today marked the 8th annual Student Veterans Appreciation Day at Coffman Memorial Union. This year's event featured a different format with carnival games, pizza, and prizes. The event was a great success - fantastic job to everyone involved!

The Community Fund Drive continues until October 31 and provides a variety of ways to make a charitable donation. You can make a pledge to the six federation partners or a 501(c)(3) of your choice.

The highlights of the ASR community fund drive activities are here. The penny war continues, with Williamson Hall in the lead (points are apportioned by number of staff per building).

The Office of the Registrar has transitioned out of ServiceNow and into Salesforce. Emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org now go into Salesforce rather than creating a ServiceNow incident. If you are a ServiceNow user and have an item for Office of the Registrar or GSSP to handle, please avoid reassigning a ServiceNow incident to them.
Employees from across ASR will be performing system testing for the Upgrade over the next several weeks. System testing will require very focused effort - please be courteous to employees that are performing system testing and respect their need for time alone. If you are performing system testing, here are some ideas on how to alert colleagues to your need for privacy:
- Hang a sign outside your workspace
- Set your Google chat status to "busy"
- Reserve time for system testing on your calendar
Disruptions will result in wasted time and effort, so please be sure to avoid interruptions to system testing.
