The AK Fastlane is a blog written by students, for students at The University of Akron. 

This week spring fever has filled The AK Fastlane with a graduation bucket list, self-esteem tips, course spotlights, and more!

How to learn and be wise: an angel's guide:
The devil taught us how to get A's, and now the angels share their expertise on how to be wise by blogger Nick Nussen.

The 2014 Black Male Summit:
Share your photos and experiences over this weekend at The Black Male Summit with hashtag #UABMS2014 so blogger Tyeal Howell can add them to the photo gallery!

Course Spotlight: Tools for Mechanical Engineering:
All you future Mechanical Engineers should read blogger Jennifer Anand's expectations, surprises, challenges, and advice for this Tools class.

You are not an Oreo
April showers bring May flowers... and shorts, tank tops, dresses, flip-flops, and (hopefully) sun. Blogger Bailey Sandin offers us a much needed self-esteem booster with the help of UA's Counseling and Testing Center and the Beauty Redefined Foundation.

10 things to do before graduating:
Here's a mandatory bucket list for all you seniors, from blogger Anna Tultz.

Last Lecture Series: Dr. Luis Proenza
Learn about the history of the 'Last Lecture Series' and enjoy the photos and inspirational words of Dr. Proenza's message from blogger Mark Archual.

Get in The AK Fastlane and navigate student life at UA!

How the new web security flaw 'Heartbleed' affects UA
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
You may have read in the news about a web security flaw known as the 'Heartbleed' bug. The security vulnerability allows a remote attacker, without credentials, to access web server system memory that may contain encryption keys, user credentials or other sensitive information.

In response to Heartbleed, Information Technology Services has scanned and updated its servers, where appropriate, to address this vulnerability. UA's exposure to Heartbleed was very limited.

Please be aware that the attention the Heartbleed bug is getting in the news will create the opportunity for phishing emails. Should you receive a suspicious email, contact the Support Desk for assistance at 330-972-6888 or support@uakron.edu. More information on phishing.

Additional recommendations:

  • Use multifactor authentication with popular services such as Google, Yahoo, Facebook, and Twitter.
  • Remember, “One site, one password.” Do not reuse your password for multiple services, including your UAnet ID.

At this time, we are not asking users to change their UAnet passwords. Watch for notices and heed any password change recommendations for all external sites you use.

More information about external sites and their Heartbleed status from CNET.COM.

Questions? Call the Support Desk 330-972-6888 or support@uakron.edu.

Introduction to True Colors Workshop April 17

True Colors™ is a model for understanding yourself and others based on your personality temperament. The colors of Orange, Green, Blue and Gold are used to differentiate the four central personality styles of True Colors.

Each of us has a combination of these True Colors that make up our personality spectrum, usually with one of the styles being the most dominant. Identifying your personality and the personalities of others using True Colors provides you with insights into different motivations, actions and communication approaches.

In this introductory workshop, you will identify your color spectrum based on your personality traits and learn how your True Colors affects your leadership style and approach to working with others.

Values and Leadership Workshop April 16
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Identifying, understanding, and living your personal values are essential facets of leadership. Knowing your values and understanding the impact they have on your decisions and leadership style shapes the way you participate in groups/organizations. Value driven actions are themselves neither good nor bad, but when a group of individuals share values and judge others’ actions based on those collective values, they become the basis for determining if those actions were ethical. Understanding your values and how to align those values with groups will help you to effectively practice leadership in any organization.

Participants who attend this session will:

• Identify their personal values

• Be able to articulate those values to others

• Develop an understanding of group/organizational values

• Learn about ethics and its centrality to leadership
