Pitt-Johnstown President Jem Spectar said in an e-mail Aug. 31, that the campus wireless connectivity project is in its final stage.

The final stage extends wireless Internet installation to rooms and common areas of the Living-Learning Center, Willow Hall and all five freshmen dormitories.

“This is a continuation of our strategic commitment to innovate and upgrade our technology infrastructure,” said Spectar.

“Since we first introduced wireless connectivity in the academic buildings in 2007, I have always looked forward to the day when all campus facilities would have Wi-Fi access.”

Wireless Internet was first installed in academic buildings, the Sports Center and Whalley Chapel.

In Spectar’s message, he also thanked Information Technology Associate Vice President Jeff Sernell and his team, as well as current and former Student Government Association Presidents Noam Berns and Cliff Maloney for presenting the wireless expansions requests.

According to Maloney, the final stage of the installation should be completed Oct. 1.
