Parking Permits Can Be Purchased Online

The wait is finally over — parking permits can now be purchased online. To order, go to parkingonline.gmu.edu. Any permit purchased online can be picked up in the Student Union II Ballroom on the Fairfax Campus 48 hours after purchase. Bring your Mason ID when you pick up the permit. For more information, call Parking Services at 703-993-2710.

MS Office 2007 Suite Available on Campus

Microsoft Office 2007 Suite has been loaded in the university’s academic labs, classrooms and in some department’s labs. To help Mason faculty, staff and students with the transition to the new version, DoIT has created a web site that includes online tutorials, helpful links and “crosswalks” that explain the differences in functions from Office 2003 to Office 2007.

The 2007 Microsoft Office suite provides powerful new features, new tools and a new user interface. The look and feel is very different from the earlier versions, so plan on attending special workshops during BYTE week (Aug. 20–24). Training before you upgrade is highly recommended in order to have a smooth transition to Office 2007. More information will soon be released on how your department or office can arrange to transition to Microsoft Office 2007.
