:: Micah Canal ’08 named Antioch’s chief admissions officer

President Mark Roosevelt has appointed Micah Canal ’08 to serve as Antioch College’s chief admissions officer, effective immediately.

Canal will create and implement a comprehensive enrollment strategy for a diverse group of students and work collaboratively to help create and coordinate institution-wide marketing initiatives that promote Antioch College’s liberal arts tradition and mission.

He will work closely with seasoned admissions professional Alan G. McIvor, who has agreed to assist in Antioch’s recruitment efforts. McIvor was the vice president of enrollment and student services at Beloit College for nearly twenty years. In his final year at the college, he served as acting president.

As director of the Annual Fund since August 2009, Canal has served as the chief marketing manager in the Office of Advancement, stewarding a program that raises more than $2.1 million annually, doubling dollars raised and alumni giving across the generations. Under his leadership, the Antioch College Annual Fund saw a six percent increase in a single fiscal cycle--an improvement without equal in higher education fund-raising.

:: New “cloud” system instructions for faculty and staff

Due to constant issues related to the overall performance of the hosted “cloud” desktops, we are going to begin migrating to a new solution for delivering applications to faculty and staff at Antioch College. This new solution will allow everyone to access their documents, e-mail, and Microsoft Office applications from virtually any computing device including iPads, tablets, Windows and Mac workstations, and even smartphones. Documents will be backed up in MVECA’s data center nightly and will be accessible from anywhere in the world where Internet connectivity is available. Performance is expected to be vastly improved because the applications will be hosted locally and at a site with more available bandwidth.

Here is what you need to know:

  • You need to contact technical support directly if you want to receive help in moving your documents and getting logged in. Note: This will be a very good time to clean out your document folders. Moving documents that are not needed into this new environment is not desirable.

STOP HERE if you prefer our IT staff to handle this process for you. E-mail Jimmy Walters directly for assistance at jwalters@antiochcollege.org or call 937-768-3022.

CONTINUE here if you prefer to log in yourself:

  • If you would like to jump ahead without waiting, you may login to the College’s new application delivery portal by going to https://citrix.antiochcollege.org from your web browser.

Note: If you are using Internet Explorer, you will likely be prompted to allow the Citrix plugin to be downloaded and installed in your browser after you login.

Note: Mac users must be running OS X 10.6 or better. Older Mac operating systems still in use will need to be updated.

  • Your username is your first initial followed by your last name (i.e. John Smith = jsmith)
  • Your password has been initially set to be the same as your username.
  • You will be prompted to change your password the first time you login.
  • Once you get logged in and your password is changed, the Citrix plugin for your web browser will be installed.

Note: Internet Explorer users will be prompted to allow the plugin installation. You will also be asked to add https://citrix.antiochcollege.org to your trusted sites list. To do this, click on IE’s menu items: Tools/Internet Options. Then, click on the security tab and select the trusted sites zone. Click the button labeled “sites” and add https://citrix.antiochcollege.org to the list that is displayed.

Note: If you have any trouble with this, please don’t worry. Technical support will help you work this out. If you’d like immediate assistance, please e-mail Steve Phipps at MVECA at phipps@mveca.org or Jimmy Walters at jwalters@antiochcollege.org.

  • Once you’ve logged in through the Web Access Gateway as explained above to change your password, you can then download and configure the Citrix receiver on your tablet, iPad, or smart phone. Simply go to your app store and search for “Citrix Receiver.” The free application can be immediately downloaded.

Note: To configure the Citrix Receiver, just use the address and credentials discussed above. When prompted for “domain,” please use antiochcollege (all one word).

For more information, contact Jimmy Walters at jwalters@antiochcollege.org.

:: Physical plant update from Tom Brookey

Update on North Hall: The installation of solar panels is scheduled to begin the week of August 20. Final painting will be done on the fourth floor and the construction team is working their way down to the first floor. Inspections are currently being conducted on plumbing and electrical. Furniture will be delivered and set up the week of Labor Day. We are on schedule to have occupancy in plenty of time prior to move-in day of the new class.

Update on McGregor Hall elevator: The McGregor elevator project is winding down. The wall will be removed and the elevator should be operational by mid-September.

We will keep everyone informed as progress continues!

:: Call for Events Committee volunteers

The Events Committee is looking for a few more students and possibly faculty or staff to join in event-planning meetings. There is at least one proposal on the table for a future event.

Anyone interested should contact Jenifer Berman at jberman@antiochcollege.org for meeting information. Bring your ideas to the table!
