Earlier in the week, we posted a not-yet-finalized plan to increase the number of dorms with wireless internet starting in the fall. Now it’s official. Never again shall you trip over a stray ethernet cable in the middle of the night, and never again will you become frustrated when you realize you threw out last year’s ethernet cable–provided, of course, you live in one of the following dorms. Here’s CCSC President Sue Yang’s email:
Hi Team Bwog!
Here’s the finalized list of WIFI-equipped Res Halls for this fall and onwards :)
8. 600 W. 113th Street (Nussbaum)
9. & Broadway (already has)
Have a great week ahead!
@oh no! This will seriously damage my shared itunes experience. Is no one concerned!?
@Schapiro What about Schapiro????
@Harmony WHAT ABOUT HARMONY????
@Anonymous what’s with the big ass satellites on 114th?
@In the know: The “Save the Planet” event going on in Lerner is using those. They’re transmitting and receiving video footage,etc. from the other global locations where the conference is happening.
@satellite dishes not satellites. satellites are in space.
@Anonymous actually, i think it’s a real satellite. I heard they were going to launch it to raise awareness for their event.
@If I stand in front of it will i get superpowers?
@Boo: I wanted Claremont to have it. =(
@Hooah Claremont’s wind tunnels are roaring with rage!
@... claremont should try eating off campus every once in a while…
@Anonymous how fast is the wifi? will we still have the ethernet outlets?
I would rather have my nice router. Sharing bandwidth with other people is no fun.
@bway resident it’s pretty fast and reliable. I love being free from wires/not having to mess with my illegal personal wifi setup.
@Anonymous Doesn’t McBain already have Wifi? I’m confused
