Additional Printing Credit Added to Student Accounts

With the start of a new semester, 500 pages of printing credit have been added to each student's account.  This is also a good occasion on which to remind students, particularly 2Ls, 3Ls and 4Ls, that if they cannot print wirelessly to the laptop printer, it is probably because they are still using their old Lawnet credentials.  At this time last year, when we moved students' accounts from Lawnet to Active Directory, we announced that students would need to bring their laptops by the IT department for assistance reconfiguring their computers to print on the new network.  If you never did so and wish to print wirelessly, please stop by.
