Welcome to the New Student Checklist. There's a ton to think about before you head off to college and we want to help make sure you think of it all.
Use the links at the right to find out about your residence hall, where you'll eat, and what's going to take place during New Student Orientation. We've also listed out all of the documents and forms you'll need when you get here. And as always, if you have any questions, give us a call or shoot us an email!
Computer viruses and worms are programs or program fragments which are potentially damaging to computer and network-based information and resources.
All students should be aware of the ease by which viruses and worms are spread and must take all necessary steps to insure that files and devices are virus and worm-free. All computing devices connected to the Greenville College data network are required to have anti-virus software installed and fully updated at all times.
Computers detected on the network spreading viruses or exhibiting virus-like activity will be quarantined and will not regain access to the network until quarantine steps are completed or system is reinstalled. In some cases a mandatory reinstall will be necessary.
Examples of such mandate include, but are not limited to: a new virus has infected your computer for which removal tools or instructions are not available, or keylogger is installed on your system which presents reasonable risk of identity theft.
Yes, but since the number of faculty offering applied lessons is limited, lesson priority is given to music majors and minors. Elective lessons may be offered if lesson slots are available.
Note: Students who are not music majors or in a music ensemble may not store instruments in any of the music department facilities. The music department is also not responsible for any students’ instruments or equipment stored in our facilities.
Yes, each student is required to attend 36 chapels per semester. There are many ways in which you can fulfill your chapel requirements.
There are three standard chapels that meet on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:30-10:20am plus two other chapel options per week: Vespers, which meets on Thursday nights at 9:30pm, and Prayer and Meditation chapel, which meets every Tuesday from 1:30-2:20pm.
Students may also get elective chapel credit by being involved in Bible studies and various other activities on campus. We feel that chapel is a very important part of the Greenville experience and hope that you will grow and learn from these experiences.
Consult pages 32 through 34 of your student handbook if you have more questions, or contact our Director of Spiritual Formation, Chaplain Lori Gaffner, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at extension 7120.
No. A laptop is not required but many students do find them extremely helpful in their course of work.
Network gaming is allowable provided it does not interfere with our network or others' use of the network. We do not explicitly block any games, however, network bandwidth monitoring tools may impact performance.
We expect and require students to act responsibly with their computers, and to avoid using them for inappropriate purposes. Downloading of pornography, as well as other improper conduct, is prohibited, detectable, and traceable to your individual computer and network ID.
We use a system that monitors the pages students view from the Internet rather than restricting access. A report of offenders is maintained by the Student Development Office on a regular basis. Violations to campus policies may result in disabling internet access and/or network accounts.
Due to the way AOL web browser interacts with our internet monitoring system, use of it is not allowed on campus. Currently this is the only AOL component we are blocking. Students may still use AOL email accounts and AOL Instant Messenger.
Voluntary Internet Blocking
Voluntary blocking of inappropriate websites is available. An online form can be found on the Help Desk website. You may complete this form to request website filtering for your student account.
Yes, we have both a wired and wireless network. In fact, we were the first college in the nation to build out a completely wireless campus.
While not all buildings and campus housing have wired connections, there is general coverage by our wireless network (802.11b/g standard). Our wireless network operates at the 2.4Ghz frequency, therefore 2.4 Ghz phone or other devices operating at this range are prohibited on campus.
You will receive information on how to connect to the network when you arrive on campus.
The following campus housing is equipped with Ethernet (wired) connections in each room: Ellen J. Mannoia Hall, Kinney Hall, West Oak Hall, Janssen Hall, Hoiles House and Blankenship Apartments. Other campus housing units not listed here have only wireless access
Yes. Resident students are assigned a mailbox.
Campus mail and U.S. Mail is distributed Monday through Saturday. Students are encouraged to check their mailboxes regularly. Packages and certified mail may be picked up at the Mail Room [building 7, on your campus map] counter during regular business hours.
Keys for the mailbox may be picked up in the mail room. A $25 fee will be assessed for replacement keys and the mailroom will not get your mail for you if you do not have your key. Mailboxes for all students are in the Delbert E. Sims Union [building 8, on your campus map]
All student mail must be addressed to a campus post office number (CPO#). Items without the CPO# will experience delays. Student mail should be addressed as follows:
Name of Student
317 East College Ave.
CPO # XXX (where “xxx” is your mailbox number)
Greenville, IL 62246
Students wishing to change their schedule should pick up an add/drop form from the Records Office located on the main floor of Marston Hall [building 33 on your campus map]. The student must then consult with and receive the signature of their academic advisor for all schedule changes. The form must then be returned to the Records Office to be entered.
When you'd like to declare a major and/or minor, pick up the appropriate forms in the Records Office [located on the main level of Marston Hall, building 33 on your campus map.]
Then you need to meet with the department chair of your chosen major to discuss your academic goals and to be assigned an advisor. The forms must then be returned to the Records Office.
Auditions for Chorale, GC Choir, and Chamber Singers take place during New Student Orientation in Room 203 of the Whitlock Music Center [building number 14 on your campus map]. Prospective members may signup for an audition time and secure more information about auditions in the hallway next to Dr. Wilson’s Studio. Choral Ensembles are open to all students.
