This year’s experiential event focuses on helping students utilize AI and online tools to get to the next level. Whether that means your first full-time job up the career ladder or a coveted internship, stop by Tech Fair and let the IT experts support your goals! You can also get assistance with your tech issues, such as help with campus Wi-Fi and how to log in to LinkedIn Learning for free, check out Marston Science Library and 3-D printing options, and see what software is available free or at seriously discounted prices.
