COPY CARD REFUNDS & LIBRARY FINES
This is the final reminder to bring your copy cards to the Library to receive a refund on your balance. Refunds will be made until May 1, 2015. This applies to students on the Toledo campus only.
 
Be sure to check your library account on the Library Proxy Page: me.opal-library.org to see if you have any overdue materials or fines. Holds will be placed on diplomas and transcripts of those who have overdue materials and fines. Call the Library 419-251-1700 if you have any questions.
 
BOOK BUYBACK
Matthews will be on the Toledo campus Wednesday, April 29 and Thursday, April 30 for a book buy back event.  If you have text books that you want to sell back to Matthews please stop by the Mercy College Auxiliary Room (directly across from the Student Lounge) Wednesday 1:00 - 5:00 p.m., or Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. 
All students, especially those at Youngstown, are reminded that you can also sell your books back to Matthews online. 
 
LABYRINTH - ALL OF FINALS WEEK
The Labyrinth will be in Chapel during finals week for you to walk the path. Take a break... focus... allow the slow, gentle walking to help calm you down and relieve the stress that finals week may bring. Before you start your day or at the end of a stressful day, the Labyrinth can help you find your center once again. Typically, it only takes about 15-20 minutes to walk the circuit. Try it...and find serenity!

FAREWELL
Dear Students,
I did not want you to be surprised when you returned this summer, or next fall, to discover that I have left Mercy College. I have been with the college for 14 years, and I have enjoyed working with you and my Mercy College family. I am planning on starting a new career in wellness – something I am very excited about. Around the beginning of June will be my last day. The College is hiring someone to replace me, and we hope to have a person in place by then.
 
It has honestly been my privilege and pleasure to serve you. I will miss my students and co-workers. Mercy has offered me more than an opportunity to do the work I have loved, it has offered me friendships, growth opportunities, and meaning. When I say “farewell,” I truly mean it. I hope you that you do fare well!
Wendy Nathan, Director of Counseling
 
DESIRE2LEARN UPGRADE
The Distance Education division is pleased to announce that we will be upgrading our learning management system, Desire2Learn (D2L) on May 6, 2015. The upgrade will bring more stability, fix some bugs, and help us move towards a more mobile platform. 
 
What does this mean to you? As a student, you will not have access to D2L on May 6 as the upgrade is applied. Once it is back online, the DE division will begin working on activating certain features and making minor changes to the log-in screen and navigation over the next few days.
 
Who can I contact if I need help after the upgrade is applied? If you are experiencing trouble after the upgrade, you can get help one of two ways. 
1. ​​If you cannot submit an assignment or complete a quiz, please call the D2L help desk at 1-877-325-7778.
2. For video or other non-assignment related issues, please use this link to request assistance from the DE staff.
Questions about the upgrade can be directed to Christina Siegfried at 419-251-1796 or christina_siegfried@mercy.com
