How can Blackboard help you as a student?

Many if not all of your classes will utilize Blackboard, from professors posting up lectures, homework, grades, and even online tests to important department information. A short tutorial on how to access Blackboard and HNFS department information:

  1. Log into Blackboard (
  2. Under My Organizations > HNFS Department
  3. View the tabs on the left
    • HNFS Documents
      • Need to know whether a particular class will be available next quarter? “Schedule of FN courses up to 2016”
      • Have an appointment with your advisor and do not know what to bring? “Dietetics/Nutrition Science Advising Packet” (including Advising Packet, Roadmap, Curriculum Sheet)
    • FN Advising Center
      • Need to know who your advisor is? “HNFS Academic Advisors”
      • Curious of when the next club meeting will be? “HNFS Clubs Calendar”
  4. If you have time, take a look at each organization on your Blackboard. You will be surprised as to how much information you will discover!
