Farewell Index

The IT@Sam Newsletter, and its predecessors, have been a mainstay for getting information to campus about technology services for over 20 years. From a time when going to school online and working from home wasn’t even a thought to now having constant access to classes and technology, we were with you along the way. 

And we have so much more to communicate, therefore, we are taking some time to evaluate how and what we share with you.

For now, be on the lookout for an email series regarding IT changes (trust us, you want to read these), emails for training opportunities, and more! We are very excited for these changes and the ability to serve you better. We hope you are too!

Have suggestions?
Tell us what you want to hear about and the platform you prefer (email, text, social media, etc.)!

As we close, we felt it would be fun to look back and see how far we have come as a community.
