     Email and additonal services
• Our key service offering to SAS students is
  Microsoft Live @EDU.
• The core service is email (Hotmail), but SAS
  students also have access to a suite of
  productivity applications through their Live
  accounts. These services include: calendaring,
  contacts management, web-based productivity
  suites, file storage and synchronization tools, etc.
• Alternatively, students can use any email service
  they choose (gmail, yahoo, etc.) and have their
  sas.upenn.edu email relayed to that address.
                Outlook Live
• It is likely that we will be moving to a hosted
  Exchange solution in the fall of 2011.
• Dental, GSE and Design are already using this
  service
• Students will retain access to all of the
  aforementioned services, but will gain access
  to a more robust email service.
       Students.sas Web Server
• Because outsourced email services rarely have
  flexible web hosting, we’ve opted to run our
  own basic web-hosting service for students
  who wish to have a personal academic site.
   Weigle Information Commons
• We work closely with the Information
  Commons to offer technical workshops for
  students and to provide group study space for
  all University students.
             Wireless Printing
• We offer students the ability to print to SAS
  and Library printers from their laptops from
  any location– that is, they don’t need to use a
  lab computer to print.
         Wireless Setup Events
• To help students who are having difficulty
  connecting to wireless, we offer semester-ly
  wireless setup events.
• We tend to attract the truly clueless students
  and some really hard cases to these events
Student Technology Advisory Board
• This student-led group's purpose is to advise SAS
  Computing and administration officials on student
  technology projects and initiatives, as well as to represent
  the technology interests of all College students.
• At the first meeting each year, we brainstorm some ideas
  for projects that we can work on over the course of the
  academic year - areas where students think services could
  be improved, new services that we are not offering, but
  should be, etc. Then, at subsequent meetings, we discuss
  and attempt to implement any viable ideas.
• We bring guests to our meetings (pretty much anyone from
  IT at Penn)
