Service Desk Open House

April 24, 2014 Comments off

open_houseIT@Sam Service Desk moved into its newly renovated location in Academic Building 1, room 145 at the end of the Fall 2013 Semester. We would like to open our doors to share our new space — we invite the SHSU campus community to an Open House on May 1st from 8:00am – 5:00pm.

This is a great opportunity to not only visit our new location, but also to meet our staff and have any questions concerning technology at SHSU answered. In addition, you will have the opportunity to win several prizes by entering our hourly drawings.

We hope you’ll join us for refreshments and fellowship on May 1. If you are unable to stop by during the Open House, please feel free to drop by our office at any time. Our normal walk-in business hours for each campus are as follows:

Main Campus (AB1, Room 145)  
7:30am – 6:00pm, Monday – Friday

The Woodlands Campus (TWC, Room 315C):
8:00am – 10:00pm, Monday – Thursday
8:00am – 5:00pm, Friday – Saturday
