3.1 No Talking during Lectures

Your class representative says we’re approaching zero tolerance for students talking during lectures. I will be asking students to leave the lecture if this continues:

Subject: Rising Class Issue

Hello Shawn,

I have been informed by multiple students recently that they are getting very irritated in class due to some groups of students constant chatter.

For the most part it seems to be that same groups of people and in our lecture classes that continue to chatter for full on conversations both school and not school related. The teachers have repetitively asked people to stop talking while they are teaching but that clearly doesn’t seem to be working. This is frustrating because this is college and we shouldn’t have to punish or single people out in class in order for them to be respectful of others.

The only thing that seems to make sense is to ask teachers to kick the students out of class if they have already been warned once to stop talking. I would like to run this by you first before i ask my teachers if they would be willing to follow through with this idea.

3.2 Free 5 GHz WiFi Adaptor

Coordinator Shawn McBride sent you all an email on October 2 telling you about how to get your own free 5 GHz WiFi Adaptor:

The College’sWireless network supports two frequencies; 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

Many laptops only support the 2.4GHz frequency which is very crowded, while the 5 GHZ frequency has unused capacity.
Laptops which specify 802.11 bgn typically only have a 2.4GHz radio.
Laptops which specify 802.11 abgn have 2.4 and 5 GHz radios.

ITS is now distributing free 5 GHz USB network adaptors at their service desk in room C102.

ITS is now distributing free laptop network adapt ors for those who would benefit from an upgrade (ie. those who have a laptop whi ch cannot support a 5 GHz signal). In general, devices made by Apple or systems that support the 802.11A or 802.11AC standard do not require an upgrade. Please contact the ITS Service Desk if you feel your system could benefit from this upgrade.
