Entrepreneurship Networking Night
Interested in entrepreneurship? Talk to others who have interest or professional success within the field of entrepreneurship from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. tonight in the Rotunda in Schlegel Hall.

Refreshments will be provided. RSVP to Susanna Virgilio or contact her with questions.

Symposium: Teens Talk about Self-harm
“Why We Hurt Ourselves: Teens Talking About Self-harm” will be addressed at 31st Annual Janice Lynn Cohen Memorial Symposium, 8 a.m. to noon, Wednesday, Nov. 9, in the Class of ’62 Auditorium (G-9425), Medical Center. Registration is $30 and begins at 7:30 am. This symposium is designed to bring medical professionals, clergy and pastoral leaders, policymakers, social workers, and the community together to discuss issues related to medical and spiritual care of children and adolescents. For more information, contact Ruth Lawrence at ruth_lawrence@urmc.rochester.edu.

Instant Messaging Security
Instant messaging has many of the same security threats as email. Instant messaging can transfer viruses and other malware and give hackers an easy way to find victims. If you regularly use instant messaging, University IT reminds you to be aware of the security risks associated with it and take steps to protect yourself. Do you have ideas that should be shared as security tips of the week? Send them to UnivIT_SP@ur.rochester.edu.
