The Commons

Adding a Profile Picture

Uploading a profile picture into your Commons profile is a great way to help others put a face to a name. This will help you build a sense of community with others as you make your way through your academic goals.

  • After logging into The Commons, click on the “Me” dropdown on the top navbar and select the "Profile" link. 
  • In the upper right hand corner, click on the pencil icon to edit your profile. 
  • Click on the “UPLOAD” button to add your picture. Once uploaded, a preview of your picture will appear.
    • To replace the picture, click on the trash can icon. 
  • To save, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the “SAVE” button. 

Time Zones

It is recommended that you keep your "time zone" saved to the time zone you are located in. The Commons automatically defaults to Los Angeles time.  

  • You can access the time zone in your Accounts Settings. 
  • Under "Account" scroll down and select your preferred time zone.
