Visit Us  at Tech You Get at UNH on Wednesday, January 25

Welcome back, UNH Students! It's time to prepare yourselves for spring semester. As such, on Wednesday, January 25, UNH students (new or existing) will have an opportunity to learn and ask questions about UNH IT’s services, products, and support at the First Annual ‘Tech You Get at UNH’ sessions. This event will be held in MUB Room 203 from 10:30AM-1:30PM, and will consist of eight 15-minute speed information sessions focused on topics regarding UNH-provided software (e.g.  Box, Wildcats Email, Office), services (e.g. Parker Media Lab, Computer Repair Services, UNH Computer Store), and support (e.g. UNH IT Service Desk, AT Support Center). UNH Students can also learn more about the UNH Student Technology Liaison program, a group which meets monthly over lunch (provided) to discuss technology.

UNH IT will also be raffling off $100 UNH Computer Store gift cards. These sessions are free, as is the raffle entry. No registration is necessary.
