Wi-Fi Help for Residence Halls: Meet Our Apogee ResNet Tech

Are you a student who lives in the residence halls here at Millersville University and need help with Wi-Fi? If so, there are staff and resources here to help you. 

Will Williams is a CompTIA Network+ Certified Network Technician who works for Apogee, the company that provides the Wi-Fi service to the residence halls. He is responsible for maintaining the ResNet Wi-Fi service at Millersville University. We interviewed him about topics that students should know about the network in the residence hall and also to provide a little personal information about himself. 



Tell me a little about yourself?
I am a complete nerd. I love technology, finance, and video games. I am studying to become a Network Engineer.

How can students in the residence halls obtain help for internet-related issues they may be experiencing?
Support is available 24/7 for students. Call 833-548-7747 for support or go to millersville.apogee.us for more support options.

What advice do you have for students in the residence halls to stay successful with their tech in the halls?
If you have an iPhone or iPad, turn the “Private Wi-Fi Address” setting off. Instructions can be found online for how to turn off this setting or call us and we can help. This setting can cause connection issues if it’s not turned off.

What do you like most about Millersville University?
The students and staff here have all been very friendly and welcoming. I get the privilege to work alongside a university staff that takes a ton of ownership and wants what’s best for the university.


We’re glad to have Will here as a part of our Millersville University community and thank him for his dedication! Please make sure to give him a warm Marauder “Hello!” if he ever helps you with a service request.

OFF-CAMPUS WAIVER FAQS

Below are frequently asked questions and their answers related to the off-campus waiver process to help you plan accordingly for the 2024-25 academic year.

Should I apply for on-campus housing for 2024-25 academic year?

If you are returning to Millersville University for the 2024-25 academic year and not eligible for a 60+ credit waiver, you should apply to secure campus housing.

I will not have 60 earned credits until I finish the spring 2024 semester. Can I still apply for a waiver?

Yes. University Housing & Conference Services (UHSC) takes into consideration the anticipated number of credits that you will earn for the spring 2024 semester. Keep in mind that you can become ineligible if you decide to withdraw from or fail courses that will put you under the 60-credit mark by the end of the spring 2023 semester.

What if my friends I want to live with have 60+ credits and are approved, but I only have 30-59 earned credits?

Decisions regarding the availability for off-campus waivers for students with between 30 -59 credits will be determined in the summer of 2024. Additionally, those with 30-59 earned credits who are granted a waiver may only reside in Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI) communities and not elsewhere off-campus.

Some of my intended roommates and I have received a 60+ credit waiver, but one (or more) have only have 30 – 59 earned credits. What should we do?

Students with only 30 – 59 earned credits are not guaranteed a waiver. You should proceed accordingly assuming that your friend may not be granted a waiver. It is recommended that you make off-campus roommate arrangements with students who do have a 60+ earned credit waiver.

If I do not have the required credit hours to move off campus, can I take summer classes to get the needed credits?

You may do so if this will place you at a level of 60 or more earned credits prior to the start of the fall semester.

What if I already signed a lease somewhere other than Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI)?

You may only sign a lease somewhere other than Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI) if you have acquired a 60+ earned credit waiver.

I received a waiver last year but never used it, can I use it this year?

No. You must apply for a waiver each year.

Can I transfer my waiver to someone else?

No. Waivers are not transferrable to other students.

If 30 – 59 credit waivers for SLI are granted, how are they chosen?

Waivers will be granted in sequential order by the date and time of the of “Fall 2024 off-campus request application” until the number of waivers available are exhausted. Waivers granted for those 30 – 59 earned credits will not be based upon any intended apartment roommate arrangements that you may have.

If I do not know if I will be granted a 30 – 59 credit waiver, do I have to live on campus for the summer?

Students are not required to live on campus during the summer months but may do so.

Is there an appeal process for those students with 30 – 59 credits who were denied a waiver?

No. All decisions are final.

Meet the Spring 2023 University Housing Marketing Manager Intern – Gabrielle Krick

My name is Gabrielle Krick, and I am the marketing manager intern for University Housing & Conference Services during the Spring 2023 semester. This internship allowed me to gain valuable experiences in the behind-the-scenes of marketing and management at a university. I also learned an immense amount of information about what goes into making the residence halls as incredible as they are. I am extremely grateful for this experience and what it has done for my growth, both professionally and personally.

What did you learn about marketing and blogging?

I learned a lot more goes into marketing and blogging than what I previously realized. Originally, I thought that multiple posts could be completed within a day, but I very quickly realized a singular post could take days to actually curate, particularly if outside sources are being used to contribute to the post.

It is also a job that often has undetermined hours. There were days I was done with work by lunch time and others where I logged into our social media at 8 p.m. to work on posts. Monitoring social media is a very timely process that definitely has its sweet spots for ensuring an ample success rate.

Finally, I feel I really learned what exactly my voice is in the blogging realm. While there is a right and wrong way to blog, especially when you are the voice behind a university department, it is also important to differentiate yourself from every other blog by appropriately using your voice. This semester, I found my voice, and what I plan for it to be in the future.

What did you learn about yourself?

I learned I can handle a lot more than what I previously expected of myself.  While working 20 hours a week on this internship, I also had three courses I was taking, another part-time job, and two clubs that I am on the board for. In the beginning weeks of the semester, it was a lot. So much so, that I thought there was no way I could handle it all for the duration of a 15-week semester. I persevered though, nailed down my routine, and made it through my final semester as an undergraduate student. I learned I am capable of so much more than I give myself credit for.

What is your favorite blog post that you wrote?

My favorite blog post that I wrote is The Dos and Don’ts of Getting Involved in College. This was a really personal piece for me. The organizations I am apart of at Millersville University are truly what have gotten me through the past four years. Without these outlets, I do not know that I would have made it, and it was surreal getting to share those experiences through a blog post that I hope helped at least one student.

What was your most memorable project?

My most memorable project was more of a general experience that I got to participate in throughout the semester. I was able to work with an actual marketing team. It was incredibly exciting and rewarding getting to interact and collaborate with professionals in areas I hope to work full-time in after graduation. Also, witnessing them interacting, specifically on Microsoft Teams, was interesting. While it may have seemed insignificant to them, I was taking note each day of how my coworkers were operating successfully as a team, rather then just individuals.

What are your plans for the future?

I am currently planning to move to Philadelphia to pursue an undetermined role in marketing. I am excited to venture out of the small town I have spent most of my childhood in and be closer to family in the process.

Spring Into the End of the Semester

Spring has officially sprung on Millersville’s campus as we enter into, in my opinion, some of the worst weeks of the semester. The countdown is on until graduation and summer break, and it cannot come fast enough. As professors cram the last of assignments and finals creep up on us, it is sometimes hard to really enjoy the beautiful weather. So, let’s discuss what exactly you can do during this time of year on a college campus.

Study outside: Utilize this weather to get the never ending assignments and studying you need to do, done. I get it, just because the weather is warming up, does not mean that your list of to dos is decreasing. Rather than sulking over the fact that there is much to be done, utilize the multiple outdoor locations around campus for studying outside.

Take a walk: Walk around the entirety of campus, even those parts you have yet to explore. Or venture into the neighboring communities near campus. Millersville is luckily equipped with plenty of sidewalks and neighborhoods that are perfect for taking a mid-day walk on a warm day.

Explore local markets: Specifically, explore the Lancaster Central Market or downtown Lancaster in general. On a warm spring day, walking around downtown Lancaster and the market is something out of a Hallmark movie, I promise.

Attend sports events: Whether it is a local game or a Millersville specific team, take a warm day to sit outside and enjoy an outdoor sport, while also supporting your university. This can be a fun way to spend time with friends or also a way to support friends who play a sport. It is never a bad idea to have a little school spirit, too.

Relax and recharge: Warm weather is the perfect excuse to give yourself a break to relax and recharge. As a college student, this time of year is exhausting and extremely hard to push through. Take a nice day as a sign to take a nap in your portable hammock or to not touch your laptop for 24 hours. Sometimes, that is exactly what your brain and body need to get back on track.

Soon you will be able to enjoy the spring weather as a simple task without having to worry about impending due dates. Until then, balance fun and work as best you can, and utilize these tips as much as possible. Happy Spring, Marauders!

Networking In College

As we approach the end of the semester, topics such as networking start to cross our mind. Whether we are seniors preparing for the real world or freshmen bunkering down for the next few years, this topic can still be just as important to us both. Networking is a crucial part of a college student’s career development. So, here are some tips on how to network effectively as a college student.

Attend career fairs: Most colleges organize career fairs where you can meet with employers from various industries. Attend these events to learn about career opportunities and to connect with potential employers. Millersville has a career and internship fair each semester that is extremely helpful for connecting with potential employers.

Join student organizations: Joining student organizations related to your field of interest can help you meet other students who share your passion and can also provide opportunities for networking with alumni and industry professionals. It may not seem like the obvious answer, but sometimes the fun you have outside the classroom can also assist in helping you network.

Connect with alumni: Your college’s alumni network can be an excellent resource for networking. Reach out to alumni who are working in your desired field and ask for advice or mentorship. It is especially helpful if these alumni are working at your desired destination for employment.

Utilize social media: LinkedIn is a valuable tool for networking, as it allows you to connect with professionals in your field and join industry groups. Follow leaders and companies in your field on Twitter and other social media platforms to stay up-to-date on industry news and trends.

Attend workshops and events: Attend workshops and events related to your field to expand your knowledge and network with professionals in your industry. Some universities and clubs on campus offer these, or just research events close to where you live.

Informational interviews: Reach out to professionals in your desired field and ask for an informational interview. This can be a valuable opportunity to learn about their career path and gain advice on how to break into the industry. It is also great practice for the interview process that you will experience when searching for a job.

Remember that networking is about building relationships, so focus on building genuine connections with the people you meet. Keep in touch with your contacts and follow up with them periodically to maintain the relationship. Networking reflects the effort you put into it. Happy Spring! Only one month to go Marauders.

Overcoming Distractions: Tips for Staying Productive at Home

Working from home, or even taking classes online, has become the new norm since 2020. While many of us have adapted to this vast change, there still is a lot to learn about overcoming distractions and staying productive at home. Keep reading for my tips and tricks on how to stay motivated while working from home.

Create a designated workspace: Set up a dedicated workspace that is comfortable and free from distractions. This will help you maintain focus and productivity. While it can be tempting to convert your bed to a desk during the work day, this is a prime example of how a nap could sneak its way into a meeting.

Stick to a routine: Try to maintain a regular schedule, including regular working hours, breaks, and mealtimes. This will help you stay on track and avoid burnout. It is easy to take the leniency of being at home all day as opportunity to complete tasks at different times each day. Stick to a schedule though, and I promise your productivity will not falter.

Dress for success: While you do not need to dress as formally as you would for an office job, it can help to get dressed and groomed each day to signal to yourself that it is time to work. Staying in your pajamas is tempting, but to your mind you are not in work mode until you are changed and groomed.

Minimize distractions: Turn off your phone notifications, close unnecessary tabs on your computer, and let family members know when you are working so they don’t interrupt you. Without the watchful eye of leaders around, it can be tempting to take a quick TV break, but this makes it that much harder to get back on track with your work day.

Take breaks: It is important to take regular breaks throughout the day to avoid burnout and maintain focus. Get up and stretch, take a walk outside, or do some other form of physical activity to help refresh your mind. When you would normally take a bathroom break or converse with a coworker at the office, now take that time to be with yourself, away from work.

Communicate with your team: Make sure you stay in touch with your colleagues through email, chat, or video conferencing tools. This will help you stay connected and feel less isolated. This will also hold you accountable for completing tasks throughout the day.

Set boundaries: It can be easy to blur the line between work and personal time when you’re working from home. Set clear boundaries around when you are working and when you are off the clock to help maintain a healthy work-life balance. It is also acceptable to voice these boundaries to those you live with and those you work with.

Practice self-care: Working from home can be isolating, so it is important to take care of your mental health. Make time for activities that you enjoy and that help you relax, such as reading, listening to music, or taking a bath. I would especially recommend planning time to get out of your house, so you are not confined to the same four walls for days on end.

Working from home, or taking classes online, is not for everyone. It is important to acknowledge that. While these tips and tricks should help with keeping distractions at bay while working from home, there is no guarantee this is the lifestyle for you. Always take that into account and advocate for yourself and your personal needs.

Email Etiquette 101: Best Practices for Writing Professional Emails

Emails are often your first opportunity at an effective first impression. Whether it is an advisor or a potential supervisor, it is always important to set an appropriate example of yourself through your emails. Continue reading to get my tips and tricks on how to write a professional email.

Start with a clear subject line: Your subject line should be concise and accurately convey the content of the email. Often, the subject line is neglected in emails. By creating a subject line, you are clearly deciphering what your email is about to the recipient.

Address the recipient properly: Use a formal greeting, such as “Dear [Name]” or “Hello [Title and Name].” Besides your subject line, this is the first thing your recipient is reading. Addressing them correctly and professionally will ensure you present yourself as a respectable person.

Keep it brief and to the point: Professional emails should be concise and focused. Get to the point quickly, and avoid rambling or including irrelevant details. Often, professional advisors and supervisors have countless emails in their inbox from day to day. The last thing they want to do is waste time on reading your email with unneeded information in it.

Use proper grammar and spelling: Double-check your email for any grammatical errors or misspelled words. This will help you come across as more professional and competent. There is nothing more discouraging then emailing with someone who clearly did not proofread their writing.

Be courteous and respectful: Always be polite and respectful when writing professional emails. This includes using appropriate language, avoiding slang or informal expressions, and using a professional tone.

Provide context and clarity: Make sure to provide enough context so the recipient can understand the purpose of the email. Use clear and concise language, and avoid using jargon or technical terms that the recipient may not be familiar with. It is important to get your point across with the correct context without needing to reply on multiple emails.

Use a clear call to action: If you need the recipient to take action, make sure to clearly communicate what you need from them and when you need it by. Again, many supervisors and advisors are responding to countless emails in a day. Clearly requesting what you need from the recipient is extremely important.

Sign off appropriately: Use a professional closing, such as “Sincerely” or “Best regards,” and include your name and contact information. This will ensure your recipient knows exactly who they are communicating with and how to reach you outside of your email.

Proofread before sending: Always proofread your email before hitting send. This will help you catch any mistakes or errors and ensure that your email is professional and effective. From grammar to dates, you want to make sure every detail of your email is specific and correct.

Remember, the way you communicate in professional emails can have a large impact on your reputation and your success in your career. By following these tips, you can ensure that your emails are professional, effective, and help you achieve your goals.
