If a site looks different, or if you can't click certain buttons, it may be an issue of compatibility view.This may include JClock, Schedule, PCNActivePay and Survey Monkey. Outlook Web App however, does not require compatibility view. If you have added etown.edu sites to compatibility view, please turn it off.
