Being a college student in 2015 means that getting your work done will most likely rely on using the technology you have at your disposal. So when the wi-fi on campus is slow students may wonder how they will get their work in on time. Kyle Vogel, a senior and resident on Shippensburgs Campus, has grown frustrated about the wi-fi problems. “Sometimes you have to adjust your schedule around when the wi-fi signal is strong. It’s something you shouldn’t have to do. It should be constant.”
Consistency is something Greg Day is aiming for. Day, director of academic technology, has plans to improve the campus wi-fi. “We will be looking at the floor plan at Seavers to see what configuration will be best for the best signal. By moving things like furniture and connecting devices to cables the signal will get stronger,” Day said. “Look I want you to have the best possible experience on the network. That’s my goal. The network affects students and faculty so getting that up to the best possible signal will be beneficial for the whole campus community.” Ship has had outside sources from SYSCO come look at the problem and will continue to work with them to monitor the situation until things are back to normal.
