Computing Services Maintenance for today, Thursday, May 19, 2016

Beginning at 9:00 PM, Employee, lab and TEC Classroom PCs will receive critical security updates to Acrobat, Flash, Reader, Shockwave, Chrome, Firefox, Thunderbird, VLC, Windows, and Office. Employees are encouraged to log off but leave their computers on when leaving work for the day. This will assist the installation of these patches and minimize any impact.

Also beginning at 9:00 PM, ALL Banner systems will be unavailable until around midnight. This is required for a major configuration change and updates to Oracle.

Lastly, at 9:00 we will be applying critical security patches to the campus file server and CS Helpdesk system. There will be about 15-20 minutes in which home and shared directories will not be accessible as the system reboots.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. As always, if you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at 7741 or contact us via email at

Have a great day!

Campus Power Shutdown late tonight/early Thursday, Campus Network Outage Info

Due to the power problems we experienced yesterday afternoon we will have to shut down power to the whole campus for a period of approximately 3 hours to complete necessary repairs. We are planning on shutting down the power Thursday morning from 1am to 5am to complete the work as necessary.

Beginning at 9:00PM tonight (Wednesday), Computing Services will be shutting down all campus networking equipment to prevent damage from the planned power shut down. We will then work to restore all networking services by 7:30AM tomorrow. All users should shut down their computers when leaving work for the day, and if you have a UPS battery system, please shut it down as well to prevent draining the battery and shortening their life. If you have any questions, please contact ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at x7741 or via email at

If this planned time will be a major issue for anyone on campus please let me know at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your time and consideration,


Kurt A. Cary

Vice President Administration and Finance

Possible Threat to the Community
“Your Right to Know”
May 16, 2016

In compliance with the “Timely Notice” provisions of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 Adams State University is giving notice of a disturbing act of violence reported to have occurred near the Girault Residence Hall in the center circle of the Rex Parking Lot, on the campus of Adams State University.

REPORTED OFFENSE: A Physical Assault was reported to have occurred on the university’s residential area, in the Rex Parking Lot at approximately 04:45a.m., early Sunday morning, May 15, 2016. This location is on the campus of Adams State University just to the West of Girault Residential Hall, on the North end of campus.

SUSPECT: Described as 16-18 aged male; race unknown, dark skin, possibly Hispanic or Black; Height and Weight unreported; wearing a gray hooded garment.

The complainant reported that she was loading her vehicle in the Rex Parking Lot very early Sunday morning, unaccompanied. As she walked around the back of the vehicle, she passed an unknown male, and while entering the vehicle, was approached by the male, who hit her in the face. Subject fled on foot northbound after being pushed by the victim.

It can be assumed that conditions continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the community. It is the duty of our institution to warn of possible “dangerous conditions” on or near ASU campus, and at affiliate organizations off campus; an “affirmative duty” exists to warn persons associated with this university of possible peril at the hands of some third party or parties. Consider carefully whether your presence at or near this complex while unaccompanied could place you in danger.

Please forward this notice to your colleagues and post it on appropriate bulletin boards in your area. If you have any information that might be helpful in this investigation, please contact the Adams State University Police immediately by telephone at (719) 587-7901; in person at #1 Petteys Hall; or, if you wish, anonymously through CRIME STOPPERS at (719) 589-4111 .
