IT Sustainability
Recycle Your Cell Phone: In the U.S. alone, 120 million cell phones are thrown away each year. Recycle your cell phone and the profits will be used to microfinance loans to the poor.

Security Tip
RU will never send you an email message asking you to provide your password. Nor should you respond to any email query from anyone requesting your password or any other personal identification or access information.

IT Tip
To print a section of a Web page and not the entire page, select what you want to print, go to File, then Print. In the printer selection box, select "Selection" and hit "Print!" You will then get a printed copy of only the areas you highlighted and will save some paper.
