Say ITSO

ITSO is proud to announce the arrival of the Lewis University “myCampus” portal. MyCampus was developed and implemented with the students’ interest in mind.

As Online services at Lewis University have increased over the years, there was an outcry amongst the student body for a simpler way to access those resources.

Almost every service in place required different login information. This process made keeping up with all the different usernames and passwords a hassle. MyCampus requires only one username and password and, after the initial setup, is able to login to all Lewis University web services without reentering login information. What does this mean for the Lewis University community?

MyCampus allows for faster and more efficient access to University e-mail, Blackboard, library databases, student records, iEmployee and tech support.

Other features available are “myCalendars,” which include official University calendars that keep students up to speed with updated information pertaining to events around campus.

“MyAlerts” and”myCampusNews” have been implemented to keep students up to date with official University business and emergencies on campus.

Currently under development are “Flyer Communities,” which give student organizations not only an official University web presence, but host great collaborative tools for organizations to utilize in communication with members and prospective members alike.

While the portal’s launch was a success, we at ITSO are striving to constantly improve the existing infrastructure, as well as develop new and interesting ways for students to interact with the University and one another. If you have any suggestions please see the “Feedback” area on myCampus and let us know!
