Hey, did you know if you want to know what’s going on currently at RISD and in your Alumni community, stay connected by reading and receiving RISD XYZ. Also, if you’d like to share news of recent work, projects, marriages/unions, births and recognition, don’t hesitate and email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re not getting your current issue in the mail, be sure to update your contact information in the RISD Directory, or email email@example.com. Hopefully, you have received recent emails of the RISD alumni directory being relaunched and the need to follow-up and either register if you are a first time user or as the email explains:
Here’s some helpful first time log in info:
1. Go to http://www.risd.edu/alumni
2. Click on “Register now” in the login box, then search for your record by last name only. If your record appears with the words “already registered”, simply click on the link in the directions. (NOTE: If the above address is an @alum.risd.edu address, the system will not recognize you as previously registered.)
3. If the system cannot verify you, or if you have never registered before, you will be prompted to search for yourself using your last name, then enter your birthdate to authenticate your account. You must enter your birthdate as follows: mmddyyyy. Note there are no dashes.
4. If you currently have an email forwarding account created in the directory, you will need to register in the new directory and set up a new email forwarding account. You can use the same account you have previously used, you just need to re-enter this email in the new system for email forwarding to continue working.
NOTE: Alumni with a g.risd.edu account will not be affected by this change.
With every change there are bound to be some glitches, and we’ve done our best to assure that there are few. If you have questions/problems, send an email by clicking on “support” or contact Claire Robinson at crobinson**at**risd.edu or me at chartley**at**risd.edu, and we’ll respond as soon as we can.
