"Tricks" and "Treats" at the IT Open House

Whether you find technology fun or scary, there will be much to see and learn at the Information Technology Open House on Thursday, October 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Tresidder Student Union's Oak Lounge.

This annual event, sponsored by SULAIR and ITSS, gathers representatives from over thirty campus-wide technology service groups to meet and greet Stanford faculty, students, and staff and provide information and advice about Stanford's rich technology resources.

The IT Open House is a unique opportunity to "one-stop-shop" for:

• Information about purchasing computer equipment and software through Stanford programs;

• Connecting to SUNet from home;

• Protecting computers from viruses;

• Using technology in the classroom, programs to help in teaching, course software, data collections available for research and instruction; and

• Much more.
