Friends and colleagues to host send-off for Sean Moriarty

An open house Thursday, March 28, will allow friends and colleagues to bid farewell to Sean Moriarty, assistant director – client and support in Information Technology Services.

Moriarty, a three-time UWindsor grad (BSc 1982, BComm 1997, MBA 2001), is leaving the University’s employ on March 28 after more than 26 years of dedicated service. He will be joining the State University of New York at Oswego as its chief technology officer.

Network upgrade expands campus communications capacity

An upgrade Thursday, March 14, of the fiber optic link from campus to Cogeco brings the University’s external network capacity to 10 gigabytes per second.

The centre’s WEDnet Regional Advanced Network, together with more than 50 community partners, helped make possible the change supporting regional telecommunications.

That’s why she decided to get involved as a volunteer with Windsor Welcome Week. Scalia was one of dozens of students who pitched in to help about new arrivals haul their belongings into residence Sunday.
