2. Niemeyer Awards Nomination deadline is Feb. 4 to the Deans office.

3. MyPath- Now available for all students -  Betty Schaner

The Records Office staff did herculean work over the fall semester to update all previously approved waivers, substitutions and exceptions to student records (and there were 1000's!) so MyPath would run accurately. Please take some time to review a few of your students and see how easy MyPath is to use. In case you've forgotten the specifics, here's a link to the information about MyPath on the Registrar's website:

http://www.gvsu.edu/it/index.cfm?id=8652E725-BA8A-FB04-ED63625A8F738EC1

 If you would like someone to visit a future department meeting to do a quick training on MyPath, please let know and we'll work that out for you.

Please share this information with your colleagues.

Best wishes for a great winter semester!
