Did You Know?
- If you don't log out after a session on any of the campus computers, you are at risk. Your personal user name and password are necessary to gain access to your records. If you do not sign out of your session, it is possible for another individual to acquire this personal information about your academic status. Some students are definitely guilty of printing long term papers on another careless student's open account. The moral of the story? Don't forget to log out.
- BU is a member of Internet2 (NoX)-a national organization which operates a high-performance communications exchange. This allows the University to be connected to the Internet2 network, thereby providing us with very high-speed access to hundreds of other institutions connected to similarly advanced networks around the world.
