Recent Student Portal Upgrade Information

We strive to keep you informed about changes to our information systems, including access to the Post Student Portal. We were informed this morning about an upgrade to the portal which had not been scheduled in advance with us by our vendor. We apologize we were unable to provide you with information about this upgrade in advance.

This new upgrade offers you a new theme which is found in the left-hand dropdown menu (see orange box). Please see that notifications — alerts, holds, and appointments — now appear above the orange box. Please take a moment to review. Your functionality and how you login into your portal remain the same.

Need Some Academic Support?  Look No Further!

As we approach midterms on campus for the fall semester and finals for our online students in Term 2, now is a great time to work with the Center for Academic Success team!  They can help you with those tricky subjects, work with you on improving your writing skills, and offer academic support so that you can continue to soar.  Make an appointment with a peer educator or professional specialist or just stop by their space in the upper level of the library – even if you’re just looking for a quiet place to study.

And, don’t forget that TutorMe is another excellent resource to help you when you find your studies particularly challenging.  All students have 12 hours of tutoring available each month at no extra cost through TutorMe.  Connect with a tutor in real-time virtually, 24/7.  All you have to do is click the TutorMe link in your class on Blackboard.  Please note that if you are prompted to pay a fee for TutorMe, contact the Center for Academic Success for further assistance.

Weekly Wellness Corner

Tips to beat Procrastination: 

Procrastination is a protective action. We avoid discomfort with our unconscious thoughts and seek out pleasure. Leaning into our thoughts and pushing through the discomfort will help us avoid procrastination.  

  1. Avoid the words “I have to…” or “I should…” 

            These types of phrases imply that you have no choice, that you won’t do it unless you must. For example, never say to yourself: “I have to study” 

  1. Say “I choose to…”, or I am ready to…” 

              For example: “I choose to study now”, or “I am ready to study”. This way of thinking implies that you have control of the situation. 

  1. Count down: “5,4,3,2,1…” and do it! 

             Quit whatever it is you are doing and get to work! 

October is STEAMtober

All month long, the School of Arts & Sciences is celebrating STEAMtober!  STEAMtober stands for Science, Technology, Equine Studies, Arts, and Mathematics, and recognizes the different disciplines that make up the school.  Several events and activities are planned throughout the month to recognize the important work being done in these fields.

Check out the Events/Activities Highlights section of this newsletter each week as well as the University’s calendar for everything happening as part of STEAMtober.  Don’t forget to tag @PostUniversity and use #PostSTEAMtober in all your social media posts/stories from these events throughout the month of October.

Over the next several days, members of our Eagles Community will be celebrating Yom Kippur on October 4 and 5.

Yom Kippur is “the tenth day of the seventh month and is also known as the “Sabbath of Sabbaths.” Yom Kippur completes the annual period known in Judaism as the High Holy Days or Yamim Nora’im (“Days of Awe”) that commences with Rosh Hashanah.
