Breakfast At The Service Desk
IT@Sam and the Service Desk invite you to have breakfast with us! These mini-training sessions are an opportunity for the Staff and Faculty to come by and meet the Service Desk employees, get a bite to eat, listen to a short presentation and discuss the topic with colleagues. Please join us on October 18 for a discussion on Social Media: Facebook Pages as Tools.
Tech on Campus - Computer Science Clean Room
From time to time, we like to feature articles about groups on campus outside of IT@Sam who are doing innovative things with technology. One such group is the Computer Science Department with the design and planning of their Clean Room project.
Cyber Security Month
Cyber Security Month is a good time to learn a little more about protecting your data and personal information.
To draw further attention to this Month, IT@Sam is hosting a Cyber Security Awareness Panel Discussion. The Panel is sponsored by the IT@Sam Service Desk and will be held in the Mafrige Auditorium (Smith-Hutson Building Room 128) on October 19 from 3 - 4:00 pm.

October is Cyber Security Awareness Month and IT@Sam is hosting a Cyber Security Awareness Poster contest to help spread information about cyber security. The poster contest provides a way for students to showcase their talent and win great prizes!
