phishing scam awareness
February 11, 2021 8:01 AM

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

Last week the university experienced two phishing campaigns that targeted students. We would like to remind everyone to be vigilant and careful with email. Cybercriminals are constantly seeking to compromise your account, steal your data, steal your money, or worse, steal your identity.

If an email asks for personal information (full name, mailing address, phone number, etc.), do not provide it. If an email describes an offer that seems too good to be true, it probably is. If an email from an unknown sender contains a link, an attachment or misspellings, use extra caution.

Simply put, if it looks strange or out of the ordinary, delete it. Report it to the Help Desk at or report it to an IT Professional.

Technology Services has an informational web page where you can learn more about protecting yourself from phishing and related scams. You can find it at
