Where should you go when you first arrive?
On arrival please see the Academic Administrator, Regina Savadge, she will be able to direct you and answer questions you might have regarding your appointment, salary, benefits, insurance, visa, your office, and similar concerns. Next you should make an effort to meet the person responsible for your group's academic support who will have information specific to your group, such as regularly scheduled events and a general description of how the group usually conducts its business.
To make a long distance call please dial 9, then your number, then (after a series of beeps) dial your authorization code which you can get from the Assistant to the Department Manager. You don't need an authorization code for local numbers. To dial a number on campus, first dial 8 followed by the extension.
