Congratulations WMU graduates! Thanks for rocking out Miller Auditorium on April 28. I'm excited for all of you as you move into the next phases of your lives. And speaking of phases, who is ready to phase W-Exchange Teams into their everyday activities?
Is everyone ready for the spring semester home stretch? Only three weeks are left and the campus is buzzing with activity. Don't forget that if you need a place to collaborate with friends and food, the Bernhard Center computer lab has a large collaboration area and extended hours.
Safe travels to those of you who will be venturing outside of the Kalamazoo area for spring break. For those of you who plan to stick around town, please be aware that some campus services will have reduced hours over the break.
I hope your spring semester is off to a good start! Hopefully everyone had a chance to participate in one of the many Martin Luther King Jr. Day events held on campus. The Office of Information Technology had a busy January thanks in no small part to the approval of several of our transformational funds proposals, the most notable being esports.
2017 closed on a positive note with a strong finals week followed by an excellent graduation Saturday. I know there were a lot of amazing Bronco accomplishments in 2017. That said, I would like to draw attention to one accomplishment that I witnessed personally by congratulating the men's soccer team for finishing the year ranked in the top ten in the nation.
As the campus accelerates towards finals week the sidewalks will begin to fill with snow just as the computers in the Bernhard Computer Center (BCC) and the University Computing Center (UCC) will begin to fill with students.
As we rush past the mid-point of the semester I hope all your technology experiences have been positive. If that's not the case, then please let me know. I would love to hear about your technology experiences on campus, both positive and negative. The Office of Information Technology is here to help!
Hey students, now that the semester is getting into full swing, are you looking for a place to sit down and relax with food, friends and technology? Then stop by the Bernhard Center computer lab and check out the technology-enhanced collaboration spaces located in the back of the lab!
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! Hopefully everyone had a "funtastic" summer and is ready to jump right into the new school year. The Office of Information Technology is ramping up for what should be the best Bronco Bash ever! Please stop by the Technology Help Desk tent to pick up a free draw string bag. While there be sure to enter our technology raffle for a chance to win a brand new set of Beats headphones.
I had the pleasure of spending most of June in the lobby of Sangren Hall meeting with hundreds of parents who were on campus attending orientation. If the new students are anything like their parents, then fall 2017 is going to be an exciting semester. I appreciated all the enthusiasm and curiosity the parents brought to campus.
