PREPARE YOUR BC IT EQUIPMENT FOR TROPICAL DEPRESSION #8

With the possibility for tropical storm weather this weekend, the IT Department is asking for all staff that remote into a machine on campus to work from home shut down their machine for the weekend by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, July 24, 2020.  If BC has a power failure or brownouts as part of the storm it can damage the equipment.  IT will have staff available Monday morning to turn the equipment back on.

If you need assistance, call the Helpdesk at 979-230-3266.
