We download a lot of files on a daily basis. We plug in all sorts of external and thumb drives to our computers on a daily basis. But, do we ever stop and think where those files came from or what they can do to our computers? Malware and spyware, among other more nefarious bugs, usually hide alongside seemingly innocent or useful programs and files we download off the internet. Then we can be carrying those along in thumb and external drives and sharing them around. That's why it is important to always take a couple seconds to run a scan on any file you download or any drive you plug in that you are not familiar with. Catch 'em all before they do any damage.

The spring 2019 schedule can now be viewed in Self-Service. There may be changes over the next few weeks before registration opens. You can also review your electronic degree plan in Self-Service at any time. It will update automatically as you receive grades and register for courses.
You should meet with your Academic Adviser to review your audit sheet and potential schedule before you complete on-line pre-registration. Make an appointment here up to two weeks in advance: Academic Advising Appointment Scheduling
The instructions for using Self-Service to search for and register for courses are attached to this announcement. Read them carefully and follow the instructions.
Remember: Pre-registration is when you identify the required courses you need to take in your major for spring 2019 plus choose the electives and/or Liberal Arts/Art History courses that also meet your degree requirements. It may not be your final schedule as course offerings may change before the semester starts. Ringling College of Art and Design guarantees that students who complete the required coursework in the prescribed order listed on your audit sheet will be assured of enrollment in all required courses for your major within the time-frame proposed for graduation. Therefore, the Registrar's Office reserves the right to revise students' schedules after pre-registration to assure that all students are enrolled in the classes they need for their major.
Pre-set schedules are not to be changed.
Check Self-Service to see if there is a STOP on your account. All STOPS must be cleared before you can register. Please check with the office that placed the STOP.
I understand that when I register for any class at Ringling College of Art & Design I accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees and charges assessed. Financial Aid is initially calculated based upon full-time enrollment. If you register for less than full-time your Financial Aid will be prorated accordingly.

Lunch with Liberal Arts
Liberal Arts lunchtime conversations are open to all in the Ringling Community
"Big Data" has been a frequent subject of journalism this past year as computer analysis has been weaponized in international cyber warfare and political operations. Join us for an overview of computer analysis and some of the uses it is being put in today's digital societies.
This month's Lunch with the Liberal Arts will unfold on Wednesday Oct. 24, in Room 314 at 11:30 am. in Goldstein Library. Dr. David Gillman, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at New College, will be talking about their graduate program in data analysis (Big Data), how they designed the program and why. He will be putting a special emphasis on what they learned about getting a graduate program off the ground in a school focused on undergraduate programs and that had never had one. He will talk about the differences between their vision and how the program looks now.
Questions about Lunch with Liberal Arts should be directed to David Steiling email@example.com
We as spiritual beings are constantly seeking for answers. We won't ever have them all, but we can find a great deal of meaning in seeking, together. Ask your Chaplain anything over a catered Korean lunch.

As we approach the beginning of flu season, please make sure you wash hands frequently, sanitize work stations and door knobs, and refrain from rubbing your eyes. For anyone that wears contact lenses, this is especially important. Maintaining proper precautions will also help to decrease likelihood of developing other potential contagious illnesses such as conjunctivitis ("pink eye").
The Student Health Center is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. No appointment is necessary. All students are eligible to use the Student Health Center regardless of insurance plan.

Big Screen Film Series Presents Dick Tray. (Film series is open to Ringling community and the public)
Where: Academic Center Auditorium
When: October 18, 7:00pm
Long before superheroes with strange powers jumped around in capes and tights, Dick Tracy fought crime in a simple trench coat and Fedora. His only concession to the super-high-tech world of the superhero was a super-cool, two-way radio watch. Warren Beatty stars as the dedicated detective who is as straight as an arrow---at least until Madonna shows up as Breathless Mahoney.
This semester the focus of the Big Screen Film Series is production design. Famed production designer Richard Sylbert won an Oscar for his unique adaptation of the legendary comic strip. Also, the special effects were old school matte paintings and models. This is the last major blockbuster to be made without CGI.
The Big Screen Film series is open to Ringling community and the public.
