Meet Your Tech Assistants

Have you met your Tech Assistants?  The Student Life office has two student employees who work with tech for any of your events on campus.  This involves working with getting a mic set up on the OC to helping make sure you can play a video in Hall-Perrine.  They can even set up speakers or other items outside, when the weather and the event calls for this.

Like you, they are students on-campus, and so often times they need to make sure that their organization, classroom, and other requirements happen in a timely manner.  So, it’s really important to fill out the Thomas Commons Tech Request with at least two weeks notice.  When you have a planned event over block break, this sometimes means that they change their block break plans or otherwise need to figure out how to make the event occur by setting up the tech before leaving, etc.

When you submit a TC Tech Request (not a PAAC request, which until a year ago used to happen), you should hear back from one of the two tech folks within a few days.  If you are not hearing back from them, please let Gwen know.

The tech assistants for 2014-15 are Alex Wolf and Jackson Smith.
