Computing @ MIT

Tuesday, September 05, 2017 at 10:00am to 4:00pm

Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center Lobby

New freshmen, returning students, and all members of the MIT community are invited to come to Information System and Technology's Computing @ MIT event in the lobby of the Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center (AKA, the Z Center). Bring your laptop, and take advantage of the many services IS&T will be offering:

  • IS&T staff members and representatives from STOPTheft will be there to tag your laptop and/or tablet to deter thieves from stealing your device.
  • Members of our Service Desk and Security Team will be available to help you get all of the best antivirus and backup software installed on your device.
  • Come learn about Duo two-factor authorization and grab a YubiKey as a backup authentication device.
  • Have any questions about networking on campus, wireless printing, or what other free services and software we have to offer? Stop by our Service Desk table and ask away!
  • BeaverTech reps will be on hand to chat about student employment opportunities with IS&T beginning in the fall term! We will pay you to learn things and solve problems!

We will be giving away nifty IS&T swag bags for you to rock around campus, complete with fun (and useful) things inside – including your own IS&T fidget spinner.

IS&T is also sponsoring a raffle with some great prizes open to all currently enrolled MIT students (undergraduate and graduate). The prizes are:

1st prize (1 winner): $100 Amazon gift card
2nd prize (1 winner): $75 in Tech Cash
3rd prize (3 winners): Roku Streaming Stick, great for watching Xfinity on Campus

Come on by our event for a few ways to enter!

Raffle winners will be announced on our website and our social media accounts on Friday, September 8. Be sure to visit the site and follow us on social media to stay up to date on the latest news from IS&T.
