Union now offering wireless network
The Kansas Union now offers wireless connectivity to students, faculty
and staff in the first KU Wireless Zones in the union’s public areas,
thanks in part to $50,000 contributed by students through tuition enhancement
The 77-year-old Kansas Union now features wireless access to the KU network
on each level. For security reasons, users will need a KU online ID to
take advantage of the KU Wireless Zones.
Academic Computing Services will provide technical support for users at
the Jay Tech Booth on the fourth floor. More Wireless Zones are planned
for locations across campus throughout the next year.
History Web site gets financial boost
The Historic Mount Oread Fund will donate $11,000 to the “This Week
in KU History” Web site project at KU.
The contribution will underwrite 10 new articles about aspects of campus
architectural history as well as a redesign of the Historic Mount Oread
Fund Web site. The newly designed site will be at www.kuhistory.com.
Topics to be covered in this new series of articles will include Prairie
Acre, the old KU Powerhouse; Pioneer Cemetery and Twente Hall.
