"TLT manages over 50 ITS computer labs at University Park, available to faculty, staff, and students. There are nearly 3,000 computers in 322 rooms at University Park. In addition, we provide services to support spaces managed by other units in a program called Cooperative Lab Management (CLM). In all, 7,000 computers in 950 rooms and 163 buildings at 22 campuses are supported by this infrastructure."
"Maybe that’s where all this comes from. Maybe that’s how Bill O’Brien sees pots of gold where everybody else sees potholes. Maybe that’s how O’Brien became the patron saint of lost causes. Last week, just before that final game versus Wisconsin, Penn State did something chilling and emotional and real. It put the 2012 Nittany Lions on the ring at Beaver Stadium that honors Penn State’s greatest teams."
Check out the new IT communication space at Penn State. Current.
"Remote printing is the ability to print to selected ITS lab printers from non Lab machines. Pages will be accounted for just as if the printouts came from a ITS lab machine."
I was just asked to become a co-director within the Center for Online Innovation in Learning at Penn State. Good news is that I also get to keep my existing job!
"On Saturday afternoon, Penn State will make an exception. Before the Nittany Lions’ season-ending date with Wisconsin, the university will honor the 2012 team by putting its name – “2012,” to be precise – alongside 1982, 1986, 1994 and other memorable seasons in the program’s illustrious football history."
"UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State is in full compliance with all accreditation requirements, according to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), which has lifted its ‘warning’ and Thursday (Nov. 15) reaffirmed the University’s accreditation."
"Penn State has received 24,000 applications this admissions season compared to 28,000 just at University Park last year — albeit a few weeks difference. The University expects to receive about 70,000 applications for all campuses by the end of this summer — down from 110,000 last year – and will likely receive many more as the priority deadline approaches, especially considering many in the northeast were without power for almost a week due to Hurricane Sandy. Interestingly, international applications have been up 10% from last year."
"This morning, dozens of people discovered that the NCAA has pulled all Penn State merchandise from its official store. If you search under “All Teams,” you will find apparel for every single Division I institution except Penn State. It should be noted that recently athletically sanctioned schools such as North Carolina and Ohio State do have merchandise available on the site."
