First-year residents of the Information Technology Living-Learning Community visited the Cisco Networking Academy laboratory Thursday afternoon for a hands-on router exercise led by Jeff B. Weaver, associate professor of electronics in the School of Industrial and Engineering Technologies. The college’s Residence Life Office offers a variety of living-learning communities on campus, catering to students enrolled in the same academic majors. The IT contingent was accompanied by Taylor R. Lapointe, an information technology: information assurance and security concentration major from Pelham, N.H. (and Resident Assistant for the living-learning community), and Sandra Gorka, associate professor of computer science in the School of Business and Computer Technologies.
