Cooper Union Orientation - IT Support
New Cooper Union Students,
Greetings! I hope you all had a chance to look through last week’s Orientation Bulletin and begin to explore the Set To Go program. As a reminder, this program provides a series of topics for students and their families to discuss and review as they plan for the transition from high school to college.
This week we are providing you with information to get you used to using the Teams platform in the Microsoft 365 suite of programs. Our IT Team has compiled the following resources for you to help you learn about Teams. Please take some time over these next two weeks to review these materials.
Introduction to Teams: Introduction to Microsoft Teams
Cooper Union Teams log-in Guide: Log-in to Microsoft Teams
Teams Classroom Basics: Teams Classroom basics
Teams Cheat Sheet: Teams cheat sheet
Teams Shortcut Keys: Teams Shortcut Keys
During the week of August 3, 2020, we will begin using Teams to engage with you as we get closer to the start of classes. We have an Orientation 2020 “class” set up in Teams that we will use together to help get you familiar with the system before you start engaging with your classes. Later this summer IT will have virtual real-time workshops for you. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact them at ITSupport@cooper.edu.
Are you eager to start meeting your fellow classmates and begin socializing with each other? The Office of Students Affairs is coordinating virtual social events throughout the summer to help you connect with each other. This Thursday, July 23, 2020, at 7:30PM we will be gathering for a Sunset on the Hudson – Live Samba Event. You can RSVP for this event here.
Student Affairs has an active Instagram account where we regularly post events and opportunities to socialize and get to know fellow students. We encourage you to follow us on Instagram - @cooperunion_studentaffairs. We also maintain an active Linktree where you can see a listing of events that is updated regularly.
Next week you will receive more information about our student clubs and organizations as well as opportunities to virtually meet with representatives from our student councils.
I hope you’re all doing well and I’m looking forward to meeting you soon!
Until next week…
Dean of Students
