A# & Banner Access
One of the first things you'll need to get is an Aggie Number when you first arrive. Banner will give you access to all your employee/student information, payroll, classes, etc.
We will put in a request for keys when you first start through Enid or Brian in the main WATS office. Pick up key(s) once Enid or Brian says its ready over at Facilities (behind Aggie Ice Cream; see map).
Your Office is either:
JQL 147 - ET AL Grad Lab
ECC 102 - Fluvial Habitats Center
You can purchase a parking pass at http://parking.usu.edu/ (you’ll need your Aggie A#). Your dreaming if you think this gets you a parking pass close to the office. You need to be on a list for like 10 years and wait for some to die to get an orange or red pass. Your better off getting a disabled pass. You can get green passes. Better yet, biking will get you a real nice parking spot.
Your mailing Address
Mailboxes for staff and students are located in the WATS office (NR 210: map). You can have your mail sent to this address:
Watershed Sciences Department
Utah State University
5210 Old Main Hill
Logan, UT 84322-5210
USU ID & Library Card
A $15 fee and picture ID is required grad students should make sure their card reads "grad student" on it as this comes with benefits, such as a discount at the copy shop.
Taggart Student Center
Card Office Room 212
You’ll need an A# and to set up a password on Banner (http://it.usu.edu/banner/) first. You can then set up an aggie mail account (a USU version of mail): https://aggiemail.usu.edu/ .
Headsets & Conference Calls
We encourage people to record lots of videos to share with each other and post to YouTube. To do this you'll need a headset. Lab Headsets can be found in both the FHC and JQL storage. Do not remove these from the labs. If you need your own headset, just shout and we'll buy you one.
We use GoTo for our teleconferencing and screen sharing. We maintain a GoTo Meeting subscription, which can enable conferencing and screen share between up to 25 participants. Our account credentials are:
If you just need a conference call line, try: as well as Free Conference Calls.
Anyone in the FHC who wants to have their own business card can get one. Just fill out this form (ask Joe, Matt or Wally for billing info)
If you want a QR Code, the ET-AL and/or FHC logos on the card, they can print those on the back and you will need to request this specifically after they send you proofs.
The first page of the order form will ask for your contact details and billing information. The second page is where you submit the actual request for the card type you want, quantity and exactly what you want to show on your card.
I suggest you use the same title as you use on your staff page. I suggest you use your own personal website or your staff page on http://etal.joewheaton.org/people for your website.
USU Residency Requirements (for tuition purposes)
DrivingBefore driving a University vehicle for field work or any other purpose, you need to take a driver training test. To complete this, follow the instructions here. Once finished with the exam, print out the Certificate of Completion and submit it to Brian Bailey (WATS Dept Office Admin). If you have any questions, Brian Bailey can help. The entire process takes less than an hour and is pretty painless.
