Tech support for students includes hotspots as well as laptops

As of Apr. 30, nearly 100 CState students had picked up "loaner" laptop computers to use during the final days of Spring Semester and/or for Summer Semester.

The College also recently implemented an agreement with Verizon to obtain up to 200 Wi-Fi personal hotspots to be loaned to students, for their use at no cost.

  • All of the 97 students who had picked up a laptop already were contacted last week with information about the availability of hotspots, and 8 students returned to pick up a hotspot device.
     
  • Chief Information Officer Frankie Baker said about 30 students approved for a loaner laptop haven't yet picked up their computer. These students also were notified about availability of hotspots, and 8 asked to have a hotspot added to their loan.
     
  • In addition, 25 students requested laptops who are not registered for Summer classes. Those students are being contacted by advisors, and when the student registers for Summer, they will be added to the group that is approved for loaner computers and hotspots.

Another message will be sent within the next two weeks to all students registered for Summer classes to remind them about the availability of laptops and hotspots.

Chief of Advancement Elliott Ruther said additional laptop computers are being purchased to add to the loaner supply, using a gift from Follett Bookstore to the Cincinnati State Foundation.

Support Group continues for dealing with COVID-19 stresses

The Cincinnati State Employee Assistance Program facilitated by Tri-Health is offering telephone support groups this week for those who wish to get some assistance dealing with experiences, concerns, worries, and struggles related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The stress and anxiety prompted by the pandemic can be difficult to manage, and can feel overwhelming, so it's OK if you feel like you need some help or support.

The support group is open to Cincinnati State employees and their spouse/partner, and you may call in anonymously for some or all of the hour-long session. If you wish, you can just listen in and not speak.

Sessions are available:

  • Tuesday, May 5, noon to 1 p.m. - Call 513-878-1440, passcode 478063#
     
  • Thursday, May 7, noon to 1 p.m. - Call 513-878-1440, passcode 478063#

The sessions are facilitated by Miriam Brod, LISW-S, TriHealth EAP Specialty Treatment Coordinator.

The halls are empty, but bright

The CState Facilities crew has the lights on and the floors polished, in anticipation of an eventual return from all-remote operations.

In the photo above, Facilities Maintenance Technician Andy Chapman is maneuvering the lift into place, so he can replace light bulbs in the Main Building on Clifton Campus.

We look forward to walking through these well-illuminated halls in the not-too-distant future.
