Letter to the Editor: System Outage Greatly Impacted Student Residents

I was really happy to see the article written by Kristin Platts and Brain Miske, “System Outages Cause Major Disruptions at Both Stan State Campuses.” The article talked about the network outage that was at the time affecting everyone in the university community and talked about all the information we knew at that time. It was a great place to see everything we knew.
I am a student that lives on campus and so the network outage affected more than just my school life, it affected my entire life. With almost everything we do now using the internet or computers it made life really interesting. It felt like I was thrown back into the stone age. So, to see this article cover what it was like to be a student living on campus during the outage was really great to see and hear that I wasn’t the only one struggling.
One thing that I did want to point out, but didn’t happen till after this article was written was that as everything came back online and we all began to rest our passwords. The Wifi was one of the last systems to come back online, leaving us housing students without regular internet access for a couple more days. Meanwhile, teachers were trying to get back to normal and caught up while we still didn’t have normal access to the Internet. As housing students, we depend on the university for a lot of our basic needs, not just school things.
