Two Important Telecommunication Changes:

  • All voicemail messages will now ONLY go to your email and not be stored on your phone. Additional information can be found at the following  Accessing Voicemail link.
  • You now need to dial an 8 (instead of a 9) to make a call from campus to a number outside of the college. For more information on this change see the Dialing Guide.
