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.

Summer FitnessCOLUMBUS, Miss. -- Summer is almost here, and as the days grow longer and warmer, more people are heading outside for their workouts. A wellness professional stresses the importance of taking precautions while exercising during higher temperatures.

 

“Stay hydrated,” said Marion McEwen, wellness coordinator for the Stark Recreation Center at The W. She said cold water is best to drink because it is absorbed faster into the stomach.

When exercising in hot weather you can easily lose up to a quart of water an hour, according to Discovery Fit & Health. Drink water before, during and after exercising.

Appropriate clothing also is important, McEwen added. “It is best to wear loose, light-colored clothing," she said, noting that looser clothes allow circulation of air between your skin and the environment.

And, don’t forget your sunscreen and sunglasses. Apply SPF 15 sunscreen at least 30 minutes before exercising outdoors. Exposure to direct and indirect sunlight over many years increases your risk of developing skin cancer, according to Discovery Fit & Health.

As for increasing your energy before a workout, McEwen recommended eating good carbohydrates such as fruits and vegetables.

When available, McEwen suggests exercising indoors by taking a group fitness class. "You will still get a great workout and even sweat too.”

Finally, McEwen said to use common sense when working out in the heat. "Listen to your body. You must acclimate yourself to warmer temps.”
