Dressage Team Small but Mighty at Findlay (November 22, 2014)
With no drop score riders, the Albion team was in a challenging position, and they did quite well at the November 22 show hosted by the University of Findlay. The way the Intercollegiate Dressage Association (IDA) shows work is that each team of four riders is able to use a “drop score,” meaning they disregard the team’s lowest score to determine final standings. Normally Albion carries eight riders on the dressage team so we can have an A team and a B team. However this semester, the team is down to just six riders, meaning that they have two teams of three and no dropped score.
Team captain Paige Gustafson (Dexter/Dexter) rode her First level test for an impressive 70.5 percent scoring her a fourth place finish. Junior Paige Beliveau (West Newbury, Mass./St. Thomas Aquinas) wound up in fifth place at First level.
First-year student Jourdan Tonti (Livonia/Livonia Churchill) won second place, and sophomore Elizabeth Neustadt (Bloomfield Hills/International Academy) took home a sixth place, both at Introductory level. Junior Jackson Regen (Nashville, Tenn./Hillsboro) won fifth place with a 66.7 percent in Upper Training level, and senior Kayleigh Harvey (Ada/Forest Hills Eastern) earned a 66.8 percent in the same division to get fourth place.
At the end of the day, the Albion teams stood in fourth place and eighth place.

Is it Phishing?
Attempts to gain access to one’s account information, known as phishing, have increased dramatically with the increased use of cloud resources. It is often difficult to tell the difference between a legitimate notice and emails that are phishing for your account information. If you would like to read more about what is phishing, please click the previous link.
It used to be that you could simply judge the validity by reviewing the grammar of the message. Now a more critical eye is needed.
Below is a sample of a phishing attempt that recently spread across campus. As you can see, it seems fairly legitimate, until you put it through the three step test.
Three Quick Checks
Below are three quick checks you can perform to help judge the validity of a message regarding your Albion Account.
- What are from: and to: fields? - If they are the same or you are not the only recipient you should be skeptical. Information Technology communicates only with individual users about their account's credentials, we will not send out bulk email about one's account.
- Is there a link in the message that points somewhere other than the identified URL? It is most likely a phishing attempt. The URL of the Albion Password Change Form is https://www.albion.edu/it/pwman and is the only page we would direct you to use to handle an account password issue.
- Is the message signed generically or is there an individual that you know sending the message? - When handling issues regarding Albion account information, you will be contacted directly by Information Technology, and we will always sign the message from a particular staff person.
- If you receive a message about your Albion Account from anyone not known to be in Information Technology you should question the validity of the message.
It is also common practice when we send you a message about your account to provide an alternative contact method, normally calling the Help Desk at (517) 629-0479, to confirm the accuracy of the information. Messages without alternative contact information should be handled with suspicion.
What to Do?
When you determine a message is phishing, the best course of action is to report it as phishing within Gmail. This will decrease the chances of the message landing in other’s inbox.
If you are a victim of a phishing attack and provide your account information, the first step is to change your password. The page you need to visit to change your e-mail password is: https://accounts.google.com/EditPasswd. Changing your password terminates the access gained through a phishing attack.
As always, should you have questions about phishing or how to more safely navigate this cloud based world, please contact the Help Desk.
