I got a shocker today when my instructor was informing us of the new U of O e-mail policy and recommending us to foreword the U of O e-mail to our personal e-mail address and when he went to the directory to show us that all the accounts now have a uoregon.edu e-mail address, I was very surprised to see that the name and other information was being displayed.
As soon as I got home, I went and looked up my information (link)and sure enough,there it was... my name, the fact that I am an undergraduate and that I have undeclared major, my home address and my phone number including my U of O e-mail all out there for just anybody to look at it.
I have an unlisted phone number, so I was not happy to see this information was out there.
Fortunately, there is something that you can do about it should you decide if you do not wish to have your information displayed publicly.
go to duck web*, select personal information,then directory profile--and uncheck the boxes under "display in directory" or if you wish to restrict all the information in the student directory about yourself, visit the office of the registrar, second floor Oregon hall, to file a "restriction of directory information" form.
*Duck Web, is a cutesy name for student personal and enrollment information web page based on the theme of the Oregon ducks.
