Online and Digital Etiquette

As an online student, communication is a bit different than in a face-to-face setting. To provide a comfortable and safe virtual campus environment, the Student Activities Office has provided several guidelines to follow for students to feel safe in a virtual student environment. 

 

Online Etiquette Guidelines: 

1. Be respectful.

2. Be aware of strong language, all caps, and exclamation points (Tip: Read everything out loud before you send it).

3. Be careful with humor and sarcasm. 

4. Check grammar and spelling before you send it. 

5. Cite your sources. 

6. Don't post or share (even privately) inappropriate material.
