Welcome back to another exciting year at Meredith College! We hope everyone has had a wonderful summer and is having a great First Day of Classes! Technology Services has had a very busy summer, preparing to welcome students and faculty back to campus for the 2018-2019 school year!
There have been a few changes surrounding technology at Meredith since the start of summer! One of the biggest changes students, faculty, and staff will see is the new Wi-Fi network. To make the Wi-Fi unique to Meredith employees and students, Technology Services decided to create a new Wi-Fi network system that would work for anyone on campus that has a NetID account. Below are directions on how to connect to your device’s Wi-Fi:
- To connect to this Wi-Fi network, go to your device’s settings, and then locate your device’s Wi-Fi network.
- From your device’s Wi-Fi settings, you should be able to find the network name “eduroam.”
- Click on “eduroam,” which will then prompt you to put in a username and password. The username is your NetID (the part of your email before @) and the Password is your NetID password.
- You should then be able to connect to the new Wi-Fi network! If your device does not connect, you can come to Technology Services, located in the Noel House, from 8am-5pm M-F, or call the Helpdesk!
Another important change that occurred on campus is the new MyMeredith Portal! Over the summer, Technology Services transitioned from Blackboard to Brightspace, which then created a new portal for MyMeredith! The URL to get into MyMeredith is still the same: my.meredith.edu. Once you get to the MyMeredith site, you will see a screen that gives you the option to choose whichever role fits you. Once you clicked on your role, the portal will then take you to the site that best fits your needs. MyMeredith is a great resource for faculty and staff, since it provides important and relevant information specific to you, with it all being in one place!
Remember to call us at the Help Desk, (919)760-2323, for any inquiries about the new Wi-Fi network or MyMeredith portal! Technology Services is so excited to see everyone back on campus and is looking forward to another amazing school year!
