Farewell Reception for Jessica Madrigal
On Tuesday, March 22, from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., a farewell reception will be held for Jessica Madrigal, director of the Office of Summer Sessions. McMahon Foyer.

Voice Mail Changes
On Thursday, March 24, CUA’s voice mail system will be enhanced to provide greater redundancy of greetings, names and messages. This measure will reduce the possibility of loss of these ‘recordings’ should CUA experience a system crash.

Along with this improvement there will be an operational change. Currently the “Message Notification” that alerts users that they have new messages is turned off when they first enter their voice mailbox. After March 24 this notification, whether audible (interrupted dial tone) or visual (lamp), will stay on until all new messages have been removed from the “New Messages Box,” either by erasing or moving them into the “Saved Messages Box.”  This will ensure that action has been taken on all new messages before the message notification is turned off. For more information, contact the Office of Telecommunications Services at 202-319-5505 or cua-telecom@cua.edu.
