INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
THE FUYL TOWER

Choose a locker that is available to use, the door will be open.

Plug in your device to the power outlet or USB port inside the locker, depending on what type of cable you use for your device ( You need to supply your own cables) , and then shut the locker door.

Lock your device in the locker by pushing the door shut firmly, not slamming it.

Enter its number on the keypad, then enter a random 4 digit PIN code and repeat, follow the directions on the keypad.

Insecure Pins are PIN Codes which are composed of sequential digits (eg: 1234, 6543) or which are all the same digits(eg:2222, 8888) are considered insecure, and the user will be prompted to provide another PIN Code.

When you return to retrieve your device, enter the locker number on the keypad and push “Enter”, then enter the PIN code you assigned to your locker, push “Enter”. The door to your locker will pop open.

When attempting to unlock a locker, the user will be given 3 pin entry attempts. If 3 incorrect attempts are made, that locker will be disabled. You will need to go see security or call the Help Desk at 360-416-7766.

Follow the directions on the keypad. You are responsible to remember your PIN code . You can use the same PIN code each time you charge your device, or you can make up a new PIN code each time you use the tower. The tower will not remember the codes after each use. Admins of this tower will not have the data available to them either.

If you forget your PIN code , you will need to go to Security and have them unlock the locker you used. Be prepared to provide ID and a description of the device inside. The time retrieving your devise might take awhile, so remember your PIN code that you gave it, it is important.

If no one is available in security, call 416-7766 and ask for assistance.

GREEN TIPS FOR GOING
BACK TO COLLEGE

Posted at August 7, 2014 | By: Sarah DeCarlo

It’s back to school time, and with that comes big college plans for an amazing year! How can you green your campus lifestyle and create the lowest possible impact on our environment? Bring a smile to your university’s Office of Sustainability (SVC’s Sustainability Committee) when you adopt one or all of our five green back to college tips for a great school year:

Walking to class is the easiest way to be green and stay healthy!

1. Transport Sustainably
Waking up early for class can be a pain, but what’s even worse is finding a parking spot – especially one that’s free. Remove extra morning stress by walking or biking to class. These low-impact, planet-friendly activities will leave you feeling happier at the start of each day, and not just because you’re saving a ton of money on expensive parking passes. If the weather in your region doesn’t cooperate year-round, take advantage of public transportation or rideshare programs like Uber and Lyft. Or ride the bus.

2. Add Some Green…Literally
When going back to school shopping, many college students forget about nature’s best decor – plants! Whether you purchase a maintenance-free orchid or a selection of low-light herbs, adding some living greenery to your dorm promotes wellness and adds a vital boost of CO2. Live plants are less expensive and less harmful to the environment than floral bouquets. Plus thriving indoor produce garden could help you curb that dreaded freshman 15!

3. Know What Can #BeRecycled
Planning a party for your friends (or the entire campus)? Check your school’s recycling options before you shop for supplies! Make a conscious effort to purchase only decor and disposable cups that are recyclable and set up clearly-labeled recycling containers for partygoers to use when they’re done with their bottles or cans. If your event is for a campus-wide organization (like a fraternity or a social club), your group might even get special recognition for being green from the Office of Sustainability. Read this brochure about what to recycle.

Some campuses only recycle certain grades of plastic. Check your school’s sustainability site before buying party supplies.

4. Limit Your Consumption
Yes, you’re an adult and your parents are no longer around to clean up after you. So now it’s up to you to conserve water while brushing your teeth and flip the light switch when leaving the room. Feel like going eco-crazy? Open the windows on a breezy day to limit your A/C use. There are countless ways to cut back on consumption without affecting your lifestyle, and college is a great place to start.

5. Clean Out Your Closet
Dorm rooms are too tiny to hold onto past memories. Clean out your closet and drop off into your neighborhood ATRS Recycler before you move! This will streamline your move-in day on campus and save precious space, leaving less for you and your roommate to argue about. Besides, will you really ever wear those pesky XXL t-shirts from random university events again?

Following these green college tips doesn’t just lessen your carbon footprint. It also helps build environmentally-friendly habits to carry you through future chapters of your life. Start developing your eco-conscience this year and make our green tips and resources a part of your everyday life.

The above information comes from Our Green Tomorrow.
