Written by Alex Plenits On behalf of the IT department, welcome new and returning students to another exciting school year at Trinity Western University! The IT department has seen many exciting things over the summer and is looking forward to an eventful year. Seeing a need for much more involvement with the student body, the IT department has created a new position called the IT Student Liaison, which will work on bridging the gap between the student body and the IT Department. Working under the new banner of TWIT (Trinity Western Information Technology), expect to see the IT department spending more time interacting with the student body. We are the people to come to with any IT related complaints, feedback, and requests. Whether it is fixing the WIFI connection on your smart phone, to double checking if your laptop has actually become a paper weight, we can help you out!
As many returning students can attest to, on campus internet speeds have never been lighting fast (especially in the evenings). With a large increase in demand for entertainment—such as YouTube and Netflix—and more students using mobile devices on campus, the university’s old connection was not able to keep up. After a lot of work, TWU has switched internet providers from Telus to Shaw over the summer. Unlike Telus, Shaw provides a significantly faster connection at a substantially cheaper price. This means that you can expect much more consistent internet speeds throughout the day.
We have many fun exciting things planned for the school year and it will definitely be worth your time to check out what we are up to! For more information you can visit our website at trinity.ca/twit, you can tweet us using #trinityIT, and you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
