BPC increases wireless access on campus
MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College increased the wireless internet accessibility on its Mount Vernon campus this week, announced Chief Information Officer Karl Hay.
Pursuing an effort to eventually make the entire campus “wireless”, the college has installed a wireless internet accessibility router to the Phillips Student Center and Fountain-New Library. Previously, the only other two places on campus open to the college’s wireless internet access were in the Jordan Building and at the Baron Field house, he said.
“We hope everyone enjoys having this capability,” said Hay. “We hope that eventually we can make the whole campus wireless but that may be a little ways down the road. Right now we mainly wanted to get access in the higher student traffic areas. This has been a big request, especially from students, since I’ve been here. We will soon have wireless access available at (the) Snooks Student Activities Center.”
Access in the Phillips Student Center covers all of the main lobby area, Cyber Café, President’s Conference Room, and areas in between. Access in the Library covers the main sitting area and study rooms, but not the conference room. Hay said his office is in the process of securing another access point to cover this area.
To access wireless internet, one must use a laptop with a wireless modem receiver.
