/GPA Wizard
Things just got easier for the truly uptight: see how that D in Beginning Drawing or the A in Physical Chemistry will affect your overall GPA and your major GPA.

/netFiles
Students seem to either have no idea netFiles exists or they use it five times a day.   Either way, students can store up to 200MB (more available upon request) of files online, so it can be accessed anywhere, anytime with an Internet connection.   NetFiles isn’t just limited to documents either.   It’s a good place to back up important photos or documents in case your computer is stolen or spill a cup of coffee on it.

/Postini
So the Bank of the United States sent you an e-mail saying they need your account information.   Wait, you don’t have an account with the Bank of the United States.   Oh, and the Bank of the United States doesn’t even exist. Eliminate SPAM in your Webmail account by logging into Postini.

/People Search
Sure, everyone uses it, but now, if you log in you can see pictures of everyone.   Or at least of all the first-years and sophomores and everyone else who had to get a new ID card in the past two years.

/Quack
Look at your schedule, look at what your schedule could be, magically add flex dollars by just clicking a button and see when your next paycheck is coming.

/Live Chat
It may not be what you think, but if you’re having computer/technology problems, you can get immediate help through the Live Chat on the Whitman Web site.   Live Chat, however, is only available during limited hours.

/Online classes
While Whitman doesn’t offer any online classes directly, credits can be transferred from other institutions.   Contact the Registrar for more information.   Yes, you can take online art.

/Rentals
Students can rent everything from digital camcorders and televisions to slide projectors and digital cameras.   Contact Instructional Multimedia Services for more information.

/Multimedia Development Lab (MDL)
From high-powered processing needs like video and audio editing to graphic design and poster printing, the MDL (located in the basement of Hunter) is staffed with knowledgeable techies to help you with your media projects.
