Digital CSU Fall Student Showcase

Digital CSU Logo

Digital CSU Methods Working Group

Digital CSU is happy to announce the second Digital CSU Student Showcase in partnership with the Michael Schwartz Library! The showcase is a round-table event where students can share their digital work with fellow students, faculty, and staff. The event will take place in the Student Center Atrium on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm. Light refreshments will be provided. Join us!

Students who want to participate should register here.
Participants must be prepared to share their texts digitally, which requires that each participant brings the necessary equipment (e.g. laptop, headphones, speakers, etc.). Participants are encouraged to provide supplemental materials such as handouts about their design process, research methods, or other relevant documents; however, this is not required.

CSU Guest Wireless Network Maintenance

On Thursday, November 15th, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m., there will be an outage for the "csuguest" Wi-Fi network to allow CSU's internet service provider to perform emergency system maintenance.

During this outage, patrons will not be able to use csuguest Wi-Fi access. IS&T recommends that students, faculty, and staff use "4csuuseonly" -- the Cleveland State encrypted secure wireless network -- instead.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the IS&T Help Desk at 216-687-5050.
