Weekly Tech Update

NPS guest network

For years we had told students to switch between wifi networks to find the best connection. However, now we just need students to stay on NPS wifi only while at school. If your device has discovered the NPS guest network or you have any of the issues listed above please bring your Macbook to the tech desk in the library.
