Please Return Technology

technology

Students, if you have stopped using your GRCC laptop (or other technology*) checked out from GRCC’s Library, please return it to the Circulation Desk immediately so we can check it out to students who need it.

We’re down to ZERO laptops to check out right now, although we have plenty of Chromebooks to lend. Chromebooks don’t work with lockdown browsers used for testing.

All technology is due back December 17. Laptops are on a timer which will lock out/close at the end of the Fall Semester, when IT will reimage and update them for Winter checkouts.

*Technology for check-out:

  • Laptops
  • Chromebooks
  • Wireless / mobile hotspots
  • Webcams
  • Headsets

You won’t want to miss the GRCC Scholars Poster Presentation this Wednesday, Oct. 13! It’s always interesting to see what each student accomplished during their Summer Research Programs. Upon their return to GRCC, students make poster presentations just like professionals do at conferences.

TRiO Support Services offers several options in their Summer Research Program. Check them out on the TRiO Subject Guide. You’ll be able to pick up program literature at the Poster Presentation, as well as ask students about their experience. Plus, snacks :>
