Be a Good Networker and Get SI Business Cards!

To help SI students represent themselves and represent SI in a variety of settings, and in response to student requests, we are offering SI students (MSI and Ph.D.) a set of 100 free business cards with the SI logo and block M, and personalized with individual student names etc. SI students assisted with the card design and the design has been approved by the University.

For those of you who ordered cards in a previous semester and still have plenty, please use the cards you have rather than order more. If you ordered last year and have used most of your cards, it’s fine to order again.

In order to keep the cost down and thus allow for providing free cards to all students who request them, we must order the cards in a single batch. Thus, only students who submit the request form by 3pm on Monday, November 30 will be included in the order. Don’t delay – get your order in soon!

We are not able to process individual or small group requests after the deadline. We will send TWO reminders after this email to help you meet the deadline.

You can access the request form via the SI intranet (login with your uniqname and kerberos password) at:

Remember, submit your request by 3PM ON Monday, November 30.

We will send an email to those who request the cards with details on when the cards will be ready and where to pick them up.

We hope you will enjoy using these cards at conferences, interviews, etc. as well as giving them to prospective students or professionals who may be able to refer students to our program or who may want to recruit SI students for internships or jobs.

And, for more information, I pulled this from emails that were being sent around SI...

Subject: re: business cards

The SI business card has a space that allows you to put a personal website.

If you don't currently have a personal website but *know* you're going to create one eventually and want to host it on Michigan's website, visit this page: http://www.umich.edu/~umweb/how-to/homepage.html

Your url will eventually be http://www-personal.umich.edu/~youruniqname/

From Dennis Hogan, SI Computing...
I Just wanted to clarify some things about business cards and your personal webspace options:

-The SI business cards that Laura originally e-mailed about are only for students,not faculty or staff.

- There are two options for personal websites for SI students, both of which are available by default and don’t cost you anything, although they do require some configuration:

1. The ITS (formerly ITCS) option, as referenced below by Stephen. This option is provided completely by ITS and has your website files served out of your IFS space (also provided by ITS). This gives you a URL like this: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~youruniqname/

This option is limited to XHTML and CSS, and doesn’t allow for more advanced web capabilities, like PHP.

2. SI People server: This is provided by SI Computing and gives you much more advanced webpage serving capabilities. Your URL for this service is something like: http://youruniqname.people.si.umich.edu/

More information on this second option is at: http://www.si.umich.edu/computing/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=154&Itemid=25
