Linkie MaraisCOLUMBUS, Miss. – Linkie Marais, “Food Network Star” Season 8 finalist, will return to The W campus this week to share cake decorating tips with Culinary Arts Institute students.

 

Marais, a 2006 graduate of MUW’s culinary program, will be in Columbus Wednesday and Thursday, making media appearances, as well as doing cake demos for current students.

In August, Marais returned to her alma mater to work with culinary students and meet community members at a public reception.

Marais competed against thousands of other contestants and earned a spot as a finalist on “Food Network Star” Season 8.

Originally from South Africa, Marais moved with her family to Tupelo when she was 16. As a high school student, she worked for a wedding company, where she decorated wedding cakes and catered.

She earned a degree in culinary arts from MUW and later worked as a pastry chef and cake artist. Eventually she moved to Boston, Mass., where she worked in a high-profile baking company.

Marais resides in North Attleborough, Mass., with her husband.

Student NetID Password Update

MUW ITS will be implementing a new password policy for all University Student users starting Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM. The password change will be activated/required upon your next login after the enforcement has been enabled. The change will not lock or force you out if you are actively working on your computer.

If your password already meets the above requirements, you will still have to change your password once the new policy rules are officially enforced. Changing your password before Feb. 28 should be done if you have a security reason to do so, but not in response to jumping ahead of the Password Policy change date/time. Changing your password ahead of time will not negate the requirement to change it again on Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM.

After the new password policy has been enabled, Students will not be able to login to services (Portal, MUWnet WiFi, Office 365, Orgsync, etc…) that use NetID credentials until you change and update your password using the follow criteria.

MUW ITS will never ask for your NetID Password via email.
