Last week, we welcomed CNU’s IT Services to Pizza My Mind. IT Services has a staff of about 70 employees with approximately 40 of those being students. These are the people who work to maintain CNU’s internet, phone, apps, websites, etc. They work at data centers in Ratcliffe and Luter and can also be found at the IT Help Desk in the 24 Hour room in the Trible Library.
During their presentation, led by Mr. Andrew Crawford, the CIO, they talked about a few of the projects they work on including updating CNU WiFi in residence halls across campus. They also shared some entertaining stories of massive failures like when servers had to be shut down to avoid heat damage, because an animal nested in the cooling unit and broke it.
This was a fun presentation close to the interests of students. The IT Service department speaks our language, both regarding CNU and the bigger Technological scope of things. Their ability to understand CNU and the students makes them a great employer for a job during the school year.
There are occasionally on campus job opportunities with IT Services, so keep an eye out on Handshake for future openings. One great thing about working for them is that you get to work among and for fellow students. Additionally, as they are an on campus organization, they are very flexible with hours and understand that students have classes and other activities to attend.
Thank you to CNU IT Services for joining us last week.
