It’s another good year for Georgia College, in terms of students winning REUs (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) through the National Science Foundation (NSF). Seven biology, physics and mathematics students were selected to do a wide-range of different research in the United States and abroad.
Two physics students will continue research this summer, adding four solar-powered golf carts to Georgia College’s current fleet of two. In addition, they hope to make the current model more environmentally-friendly and use “aerodynamics” to reduce the time it takes to charge the battery.
Beginning June 4, 2018, the email address Georgia College currently uses to submit tickets to get help with OneUSG Connect at the Shared Services Center is changing.
New Support Email Address
The Shared Services Center - OneUSG Connect Support phone number is staying the same, only the email address is changing.
If you have questions, please contact OneUSG Connect Support toll free at 877-251-2644 or at their current email address firstname.lastname@example.org. On June 4, the email for support will change to email@example.com.
Below are a few tips to using DUO (with OneUSG):
If you have entered only 1 phone into DUO then you are limiting yourself to using only that phone to authenticate (aka. Log In) into the system. Whether it’s a cell phone that you left at home, or a work phone when you’re not at work, why unnecessarily limit your access? It is recommended that you go into DUO Self Service (found next to OneUSG when logged in to Unify) and choose “+Add another device”.
We have a number of people who have upgraded cell phones in the last few months only to find that their new cell phone only receives phone calls from DUO (the “Call Me” option). This is because they have not get loaded the DUO Mobile app or not synchronized the new phone to GC’s DUO. To do this, once in DUO Self Service, choose your cell device (by pressing “Device Options” next to your cell phone number) and then go through “Reactive DUO Mobile”. It will instruct you to load the app much like it did at initial creation.
If you’re having any login problems, please direct your questions to the Serve Help Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org or call 478-445-7378.

The University Career Center is in the process of implementing Handshake, a new career services online platform for employers and students. If you have or have had an email account in our current system, Career Connection, you may receive an email from Handshake to join their system. This is a legit email and not a spam/phishing attempt. There is no action required on your part at this time. If you have any questions, email Josey Cameron at email@example.com
If you have students that need to gain access to facilities after hours for the summer, please forward a list of names along with the building and/or room number(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can update our access log. If using GCID numbers, names are not to be included unless the file is encrypted prior to sending.
Note: Access will not be granted to facilities after hours without prior approval.
If you have any questions, please call or send me an email.
Come by the Center for Teaching and Learning classroom, Library 376, this week to visualize the capabilities for using the Clear Touch interactive display to teach in your classrooms. IT is planning on installing it in some of the Arts & Sciences and the Health Sciences classrooms.
Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs), departments and Bobcat Card vendors who would like to meet with our new/prospective students will have five opportunities during Bobcat Marketplace at Summer Orientations. Please complete the registration form here and indicate which orientation sessions your organization will attend.
Marketplace check-in will start at 11a.m. The actual Marketplace is scheduled from noon until 2 p.m., however, depending on when students are released from their sessions, they may start arriving a little earlier or later. Bobcat Marketplace does not end until 2 p.m., so please plan for representatives of your organization to stay until the end.
The University System of Georgia has refreshed the look and feel of the Library’s GIL-Find page. What is the GIL-Find page? It’s the fancy term for the page where you go to look for GIL Express books or to access your library account. You can get there from the main Russell Library page (library.gcsu.edu) and then choosing the link that says “GIL Express” or you can go directly to the page by going to gilfind.gcsu.edu. Either way, you’ll see the following new features:
Simpler, cleaner interface:
- Library materials information formerly under separate tabs are now on one screen!
- See other libraries that own the book without clicking 'More USG Libraries.'
- Cite, email and save directly from the results list. Click the ellipsis (that’s the “…” next to 'Keep this item’) to export to citation managers, print and find permalinks.
- Emailed records now include the institution's names.
- My Account arrangement is more visual.
As with any update to a familiar page, you’ll probably ask yourself: Where did that go? We have a helpful list for that, too:
- Find Course Reserves in the GIL-Find drop-down menu, or go to Advanced Search.
- Drop-downs for 'exact,' 'starts with,' and 'contains' are now only in Advanced Search.
- Links previously in the footer are now in the header. Helpful tip: Look for the ellipsis (again, that’s the “…”) to 'Show More.'
- Renew GIL-Express books by changing the name of your institution to the lending institution under My Library Account.
Overwhelmed? If you are not sure about all this, talk to your friendly Russell Library employees. We can help!
Summer orientation is a structured, day-long program that offers new students and transfer students the opportunity to establish a link with faculty in their intended major, become familiar with the campus and the array of academic and campus life programs available and "take care of business" to prepare for move-in. This year, Summer Orientation will be held June 8, 15, 22 and July 13, 20.
If your office or department would like any brochures or print materials included in student and/or parent orientation bags, please contact Courtney Manson at 478-445-2007 or by email at email@example.com.
