The IST computer giveaway has ended after generating enthusiastic campus participation. All eligible requests were numbered in the order received, and 10 of those numbers were randomly drawn. The corresponding requests were filled in the order they were drawn, until no machines remained.

Six departments received the available twenty computers:

  • Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience in the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute
  • Department of Linguistics
  • Physical Plant — Campus Services
  • College of Natural Resources
  • Campus Life & Leadership
  • School of Optometry

We anticipate offering another 22 computers to campus departments and will post information on the Workstation & Microcomputer Facilities website and in iNews as our timeline becomes more defined.
