Weekly Maintenance – Reminder
Please log off your computer when leaving for the day every Thursday, but do not power it off. This will allow updates to be sent down to your computer on Friday after 12:00am. If you turn your computer off and leave it off overnight on Thursday, shortly after turning it back on, your computer will restart in order to install and apply any updates. If you leave your computer logged in Thursday night into Friday, you may lose any unsaved data you were working on when the computer restarts.

Audience Response System (Clicker) Replacement
Currently, the University is using TurningPoint 5. Both the hardware and software is at the end of its supported life cycle.
Therefore as a University, we need to decide what clicker technology we would like to use going forward. In light of this, the Information Technology Department has scheduled three demo sessions for replacement clicker technology. We invite you to attend these sessions. For more information and to register for a demo, please visit this web page.
Windows 10 Coming Soon!
