Chartwell Scholarship Application for Students

ITS worked with the Dean for Students offices to develop an application (http://appsrv.pace.edu/Chartwells/) where students could apply to the scholarship program.  This Scholarship program is intended to encourage students to serve and lead while being part of the Pace community. Awards will defray the costs of college attendance by assisting students with the cost of attendance. Awards are drawn from a fund sponsored by Chartwell’s Dining. The application will be live from Sunday, December 1st at 9:00 AM and will close on Sunday, December 15th by 5:00PM.

Spam Email Filtering: Changes Regarding Your Email Spam Quarantine Mailbox Beginning Saturday, December 7th for Students, Faculty, and Staff

We have been notified by Microsoft, the vendor providing our spam email filtering system - Exchange Online Protection (EOP), that they are making a change to their service.  As a result, beginning Saturday, December 7th, you will no longer have email delivered to a spam quarantine mailbox, currently accessible at https://quarantine.messaging.microsoft.com.  Instead, email flagged as quarantined spam will be delivered to the Exchange "Junk Folder" within Outlook or OWA (https://email.pace.edu).  This will typically be a small number of email items as the majority of blatant spam email is caught and deleted by EOP.  In addition, you will no longer receive a daily quarantine email summary since the quarantined mail will be in your junk folder. Note:  Students whose Pace e-mail accounts are still on Google do not have a junk folder.  As a result, mail typically quarantined will be delivered to your Inbox.  Again, this will be a small number of email items because blatant spam email is deleted by EOP.  Students can migrate their mail to Exchange at http://www.pace.edu/goexchange.  Additional information can be found on the Email Filtering or IT Status pages.

Website Updates for Students, Faculty and Staff

ITS continues to work closely with University Relations and has recently launched several newly themed pages.  Check out the redesigned sites at:

We are upgrading our LanFax server effective Tuesday, December 10th.  As part of the upgrade, some of the changes that will occur are listed below:

  • Confirmation emails will now come from Faxserver@pace.edu

  • The Fax # field in the Pace University White Pages page (http://whitepages.pace.edu) will no longer be viewable.  If you would like your fax number to appear or have additional personal fax numbers, you can use the Alt. Fax # field which will appear on the White Pages.
