You’re invited to learn more about the Friends of International Students (FIS) Host Program

Dear Faculty and Staff–

International Student & Scholar Services invites you to learn more about our Friends of International Students host program.
• The program provides a terrific opportunity for you to meet people from around the world, and to connect with a student in an individual way.
• It’s a friendship program. Contacts between student and family are arranged on your own terms.
• To date, the Class of 2019 will include more than 70 international students, including some U.S. students who live abroad.
• In September, we also will welcome over 12 international exchange students.
• Most of the students participate in our program, so we will need many new hosts.
We will offer several information sessions throughout the summer.
If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving as a host to an international student, please register to attend one of upcoming information meetings in the Service Building, Second Floor, Room 200.

• Wednesday, August 12, 12:15-1:00 p.m.

Please feel free to bring your lunch to our afternoon meeting.
We hope you will be able to join us. However, if you cannot attend a session and are interested in the program, please let us know.

In either your email or phone message, please provide your name, email address, and phone number.) Even if you have been a host in the past, please contact us to register for a meeting, both to share your experiences with potential hosts and to learn about the upcoming year of the FIS program.

We could not have done it without Advancement, Communications, Custodial, Dining, Event Management, Facilities, LIS, Media Services, Printing Services, Public Safety, Special Collections – and all of our other campus colleagues.

And while your support for the Centennial is a special opportunity to say “Thank You!”, it is also a reminder that, for 100 years a very significant part if the Language Schools’ success has been the help and support from all of you, year after year, summer after summer.

So thank you again – 100 times!

Bombay Print Server Retires Monday, August 3

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Middlebury College is retiring the Bombay print server on August 3, 2015, as it is incompatible with our current 64-bit operating systems.  Bombay has been replaced by a new print server named Walnut that has all of the same print queues on it.

ITS has worked with the majority of people who were connecting to the old server but if you have been away from campus you may experience an interruption in printing services until you move from Bombay to Walnut printers.   If needed, refer to the steps below to restore printing.  If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact the Helpdesk at 802. 443.2200 or via email to helpdesk@middlebury.edu.

Steps for Windows 7 computers to move from Bombay to Walnut:

  1. look for printers “on Bombay” print server name listed below queue name. Go to Start>Devices and Printers and look for entries that have “on Bombay” in the name, e.g. “LIB125F on Bombay”
  2. record printer queue names
  3. remove old print queues
  4. add printers from Walnut

Instructions for these steps can be found in our printing documentation: http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Connect_To_Network_Printers_-_Windows

Steps for Macintosh OS X computers to move from Bombay to Walnut:

  1. record printer queue names(the names are posted on the printers)
  2. remove old print queues
  3. add printer from Walnut via Casper’s Self Service(or manually)

Instructions for these steps can be found in our printing documentation: http://mediawiki.middlebury.edu/wiki/LIS/Connect_To_Network_Printers_-_Mac_OS_X
