There is a wealth of technology on our campus that can help you reach your learning and research goals, but sometimes the biggest barrier is simply learning how to tap into that technology and put it to use. That’s where the Tech Boot Camp comes in.
The Student Training on Application Technology team, or STAT, will provide training sessions during the first week of classes to help new students get started with using campus technology.
Why shop around for software when in many cases you can get it through the campus for discounted prices or in some cases no user fee at all.

Also, users should confirm compatibility of their commonly used applications before upgrading.
