The OSU BuckeyeBar in 512 Baker Systems is a new technology service from OIT offering one-on-one technology consultation and problem-solving. Knowledgeable staff can help if you need to determine what PDA to buy, where to get an Internet connection, how to optimize OSU IT resources, and any other technology questions. If your laptop can't connect to the internet, has a virus problem, or just seems a bit on the sluggish side, take it in and the staff will be glad to work with you on it. Get more information and current hours at the BuckeyeBar web site.
To welcome new and returning students, the Office of the CIO introduced the BuckeyeBar in September with a grand opening that featured refreshments, contests, and prizes for those in attendance. In addition, the Test your IT IQ gave students the opportunity to take an online quiz regarding information technology resources at Ohio State. Those who aced the test were automatically entered in a random drawing.
Grand prize BuckeyeBar winners were Kristina Kowatsch-Beyer (8GB iPod Video Nano), Kristen Weaver (Microsoft Office 2007), and Jackie Teal, Abhishek Vyas, Robert Weilbacher, Siddharth Modi, and Jaswini Vijayakumar (1GB flash drives).
