Students to discuss 'laptop university' initiative

Fort Hays State University is on a quest to become even more "high-tech/ high-touch" by becoming a laptop university by fall 2007. President Edward H. Hammond and Provost Larry Gould have shared their thoughts on the subject, but now it's the students' turn.

A "Laptop Forum" will be held at 7 p.m. Tues., Oct. 11, in the Black and Gold Room in the Memorial Union on the FHSU campus. It is being sponsored by the Student Government Association.

Students are encouraged to attend the forum to learn more about the plan, ask questions, and discuss how it will effect their lives and university experience.

Dr. Gould will be on hand to answer questions from the students about the educational impact the initiative will have on the university. According to Kiley Eisenhour, SGA president, Gould has done all of the research and written the strategic plan for the project.

Mark Griffin, manager of Networking, Server, and Desktop Services, will also be available to address questions of a technical nature.

"This is an opportunity for students to ask questions and voice their concerns," said Eisenhour. "This initiative affects every student on this campus, and they should become more educated."
