Virtual Communication Tips
- Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page to search for your own answer!
- Zoom Etiquette
- If you need assistance using Zoom, you can find Zoom tutorials through Academic Technology Services.
- Before joining a Zoom session, check that you are in your Zoom account and not a parent's, friend's, or sibling's account. It is important to use your CSULB Zoom account for security. Log in through Single Sign On before joining a Zoom session.
- Find a quiet space to participate in the Zoom. Background noise, even people having a quiet conversation in the same room, can make it difficult to hear the person you are zooming with.
- Once you join the Zoom session, check your display name to ensure it is not an email address, nickname, or something inappropriate.
- Check that your audio is connected. If you are unsure of how to connect your audio, review the Zoom help page from Academic Technology Services.
- You will not be required to turn on your camera but be mindful of your appearance and background if you choose to use your camera. Dress like you would if meeting an advisor in person. Remember first impressions are important!
- Your advisor may have their camera on. If you feel uncomfortable with them having the camera on, you may ask them to turn off their camera.
- Email Etiquette
- We do not recommend email advising, as it can take a lot longer than chatting on Zoom. Zooming with your advisor is typically the most effective way to get advising. Email advising is at the discretion of your advisor, so you may be asked to come to Zoom instead.
- If you send emails, double-check grammar, language, and tone! Avoid slang! Make sure you include proper greetings and signatures, and always include your CSULB student ID number.
- Allow a few days for a response. A question that seems quick to you still requires our advisor to look up your record, check requirement or policy information, and compose a clear reply to you. It takes time to provide accurate and clear information, and replies will be especially delayed during our busiest times of year. Please be patient! Keep in mind that your advisor is seeing students in appointments, class visits, drop-in advising, and workshops throughout the day and is not always checking their email.
- Avoid sending multiple requests or sending the same requests to multiple advisors. This can cause confusion and may delay a timely response.
- Always email from your CSULB student email. Per university policy, we must use your student email. Staff and faculty may not reply if you use your personal email.
- Check your CSULB student email regularly! We know you receive a lot of emails, but it is especially important now to check your email for information about classes, advising, and other campus updates.
