NEWS 

VIRUS WARNING: UNI faculty, staff and students may recently have
received e-mails with attachments containing a virus that appears to
be from the UNIonlineEditor@uni.edu or MyUNIverseNewsEditor@uni.edu
accounts, making them appear to be legitimate correspondence.
The infected e-mails did not come from UNI Online or MyUNIverse News.
Many viruses often "spoof" e-mail addresses, making them appear to
come from someone other than the actual infected computer. The computer
used to produce UNI Online and MyUNIverse News is protected and virus-free.
UNI Online and MyUNIverse News never contain attachments. For the most
part, they also stick to a strict publishing schedule: UNI Online to
faculty and staff on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 4 a.m., and
MyUNIverse News to students on Monday mornings at 4 a.m. Note:
MyUNIverse News is only published during the academic year, not during
