TGIF (Time to Get Information Fast)


TGIF logoHeld Friday afternoons in Turing Auditorium, TGIFs are informal, interactive seminars on computer-related topics of interest to the Stanford community. Although intended for power users, Expert Partners, and those with IT responsibilities, TGIFs are open to everyone – faculty, staff, and students. These sessions, led by knowledgeable ITSS staff, run from 2:00 to 3:30 P.M. No registration is required – just come on by and learn something new. No fees. No fuss.

Turing Auditorium is Room 111 of Polya Hall. See this map to Polya Hall.

The success of these sessions depends on you! Questions from attendees are strongly encouraged. Topics will be announced about a week in advance through the TGIF-L Mailing List and on this web page.

Because we are presenting emerging technical topics, please feel free to contact the TGIF coordinator with any questions, comments, suggestions, or concerns. Call Phyllis Olrich at 725-1541 or send email to
