Hello bloggers!

If you’re a student here on campus, you should obviously know what CTS is. For those of you who don’t, you’ve been missing out on a very helpful group of individuals. CTS, or Campus Technology Services, is the primary source of help when it comes to any technological pitfalls you may be experiencing.

Along with their expertise, CTS also provides students with a variety of programs that are available for download on their website. They pay for the licenses to the software in order to allow students to download it for no charge. The programs available for download include:

 

Minitab: A program used in most statistics classes in order to provide students with a way to complete problems and create graphs.

How About a Quick Introduction….

Hello all! My name is Josh, and I’m a freshman here at SUNY Oswego. I’ve recently returned for my second semester here and let me just say, thank god the first semester is out of the way. Between meeting new people, finding things to do, doing homework. and adjusting to all of the new classes I had, the first semester was strictly transitional (and quite hectic at times). I’d like to focus this blog on general campus news and/or interesting experiences I may have throughout the semester. Currently, I’m a declared economics major, but once I turn in the paperwork, which will hopefully be done sometime this week, I will be enrolled in SUNY Oswego’s newest program: Electrical and Computer Engineering. I’m particularly excited about this due to the construction of “The Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation”, which is the name of the new Science building that has been in construction for quite some time now (even as I was touring the school before I applied). This building is going to provide students with a state of the art learning environment, and I can’t wait to see it in the Fall of 2013 when the project is completed. Of course, this will likely be the building where I’ll have to take Calculus and Chemistry, but I won’t let that ruin it for me just yet! I’ll just have to cross that bridge when I get there.

Fun Weekend

I had a productive and fun weekend all in one!

Saturday I worked at Pathfinder all day and then went to the Men’s Hockey game vs. Geneseo.  Unfortunately we didn’t win, and I missed our first goal of the game, but the second goal we had was amazing.  It was a shot from pretty far out and was exciting to see.  It was my first hockey game this season and even though we lost it was nice to see the school spirit again!

After the game I went to Greene’s to see Ockham’s Razor perform.  They are so entertaining to listen to and so talented!  I had few classes with Claire while she was here and never knew she could sing like that!  Why’d you keep it hidden from me all those years girl?! :)

Today, I spent a good 5 or so hours in the library writing a research paper for my Chinese Art class but then went to the movies to see the much talked about Twilight.  I really did not think I was going to be impressed by the movie but I was definitely wrong.  It was a really nice storyline and it sets you up for the sequel really well.  Loved it!

Going home on Tuesday for Thanksgiving!  I’m really excited to get a small break.  I think everyone is!  Enjoy your break everyone!
