Anyone around? [19 Oct 2008|09:01pm]

It's been a while since someone's posted to the community, but I'm hoping there's still someone here. I'm just got admitted to WIU, and I'm looking to enroll for the fall semester next year in Macomb. My question is about the dorms: can anyone give me a good perspective on the dorms? I'm looking for a co-ed dorm, but I want to know which ones to avoid and which ones to look into. Any replies would be helpful!

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.

The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution

Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.

*While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff, and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the U.S.

Out of The Darkness Suicide Prevention Walk 2007 [08 Sep 2007|01:40pm]

Hello to friends, old and new. I am once again walking in the Chicago Community walk of the Out of Darkness Suicide prevention walk. I am walking in honor of my mom, of course, and of all people who I have known to lose their life to mental illness. My goal for this walk is big, 1500 dollars, but I know that with support and optimism, I will meet my goal, just as I did last year. This walk is very important to me, both as someone who lost someone to suicide and as someone who struggles with mental illness personally. I appreciate any help and support that you are able to offer. Please know that it means a lot to me, and although I can not thank everyone personally, I hold a special place for all of those who support me in my heart. I will think of you as I walk with my head held high, my mom on my mind, and my head turned towards the future and how much good I can do by raising awareness of this critical issue.
Thank you so much!
Nikki Albrecht

Greetings friend,

Application troubles [13 Sep 2006|07:45pm]

Hey guys. I just applied to WIU today and I have a few pretty important questions that I'm confused about. The website was rather vague when it came to describing what the requirements for submitting an application were.

First and most importantly, I will be applying as a junior in college (transfer). Now, I have not yet received my Associate's Degree from my current college. I saw on the site that one of the requirements for applying as a junior is to have your degree or to have gotten a certain amount of credits. The big question: is it alright that I already submitted my application, or should I have waited until I got the degree?

If it is alright, then should I wait to send my transcript, or should I still send my current one and then send the updated one when I do get my degree? I'm so confused lol.

Please RSVP people. I'm really looking forward to attending this university, but I'm worried that I may have screwed up my chance for applying. Thanks bunches!

living worries [09 Aug 2006|11:20am]

[ mood | pessimistic ]

So it seems more and more likely that I'm going to have to pull an emergency move and maybe figure out a new place to stay if my future housemate keeps ignoring my phone calls and such.

Anyone been in a situation where you have to bail out of a housing arrangement...and look for a new place to stay?

I'm not completely sure it's happening, but just in case, anyone know of a 1-person place still available? (hahaha yea I know.)

Security Breach [18 Jun 2006|07:17pm]

If Any of you didnt get the memo since I know I didnt, found out from my roomate, the WIU computer network was breached June 5th. Here's the article. MACOMB, IL - - In response to a recently discovered breach of data security on Western Illinois University computer systems, the University has taken steps to protect its computer systems against further breaches and notified individuals their records may have been reviewed or copied.

“Western Illinois University closed a breach in computer security and adopted additional security measures in response to a June 5 breach of campus system records,” said Mitch Davidson, executive director of University Computer Support Services, who is coordinating the campuswide technical group responding to the incident. “We regret any inconvenience and problems this breach may cause individuals. We are working diligently to ensure that the University computer systems are as secure as possible, with the goal that this type of breach does not occur again.”

While a University investigation suggests records were not copied from the system, the University is taking a comprehensive approach that involves a review of all areas of Western’s computer systems operations, according to Davidson. The University is notifying individuals with records in the system which may have been viewed or copied. Given the potential criminal implications, the Office of Public Safety has been notified.

The University also recommends that prudent steps be taken by individuals potentially impacted by the breach to protect themselves from possible identity theft or other security related issues.

To assist in answering questions regarding the unauthorized computer system access and computer security issues, the University has established a Web site at www.wiu.edu/securityalert and provided a toll free prerecorded telephone information message at 877/556-4100 or for Macomb area service 309/298-4100.

Copy By: John Maguire, University Relations
Phone: (309) 298-1993 * Fax: (309) 298-1606

The university will be sending those who's records have been viewed or copied a letter in the mail so keep your eyes out.

I need your help!!! [11 Apr 2006|04:36pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Hey everybody!
Okay, so I'm trying out for an independent movie called "Dead Girls Club". It's kind of like an "American Idol" thing, where "America" votes through cellular phone text messaging. If you remember a while back, there was an article about me in the Courier.

Well, I've made the 3rd cut, and they cut the 6 lowest scoring contestants everyday!

A portion of my video is posted here on their site:

The whole thing is on my myspace here:

Everyone needs to vote ASAP if you can! Everyday, between 12pm-12am!
number: 23333
message: screamer 161
then reply to their response message with: Y

THAT'S IT! it costs $.99/message, but you'll be making a little polish girl super happy :-)
If you vote, the next time that I see you, I'll give you a huge bear hug!

I'm sorry this isn't WIU related...but I'll be truly greatful if you vote!!!!

Thank you for your time! <3

Is anyone possibly going to either the Rockford area or a town on the metra line near Chicago? I could either take metra from whatever town your headed to or my sister can get me in Rockford. Either way my last class is at 1 on friday and it's not one I can skip since it's only once a week. Please, if anyone's leaving Saturday morning or Friday afternoon I'd be more than willing to pay generous gas money (can't share driving due to visual disability). Thanks for any responses in advance.
