Wells Fargo Visits Datacenter
Representatives from Wells Fargo visited the Information Technology Center Datacenter recently, capturing photos and video as the company plans to publicize how Clemson's Palmetto Cluster has helped in the fight against Armillaria root rot prevention. Wells Fargo has worked closely with the Clemson University Genomics Institute and the Palmetto Cluster as part of a $150,000 grant aimed at halting the soil-borne fungus that can threatens peach crops in the Southeast.
Clemson Mappers Participate in White House Mapathon
A dozen Clemson Mappers stopped by the Clemson University Center for Geospatial Technologies on Thursday to participate in the second annual White House mapathon. Participants worked on mapping projects for malaria prevention in Mozambique and joined a nationwide Google Hangout with the White House. Earlier this summer, Clemson Mappers worked to map buildings affected by May's flood in Sri Lanka.

Save the Date: TED Viewing Event
CCIT and the Clemson Leadership Community are sponsoring a professional development session and will be viewing TED talks on July 21st. We welcome all CCIT employees to join us as we view and then discuss selected TEDx Greenville Video presentations. CCIT employees are welcome to invite other employees to the event as well.  
 
TED is a non-profit that presents ideas worth sharing to the world, and our viewing party seeks to share local ideas presented from the TEDx Greenville session this past April. The event will last from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the Academic Success Center Room 118, and feature 3-4 videos. 

 
More about TED can be found at www.ted.com and the Clemson Leadership Community at www.clemson.edu/ccit/clc.

Help Wanted: Laptop Orientation Workshops
We've had a great turnout at our laptop orientation sessions so far! If you are not familiar with them, here’s the gist: at the end of each orientation session and during Move-In Weekend, new students attend workshops where we walk them through getting their laptop ready to use at Clemson and introduce them to some of the technology that is available to them. This is a great opportunity that we, as CCIT, have to welcome incoming students, BUT, we need your help.

If you’ve never helped before and aren’t sure what the process looks like, that’s ok. We’ll have a couple of opportunities for you to learn the few basic things you’ll need to know. We also need people to help greet students as they come in and point them to the right room for their workshop. So, no prior technical knowledge required!

If you’d like to help, you can sign up here:  http://goo.gl/forms/C6DEldjO92. You’ll be able to select the week(s) that you’re available on the sign up form. If you have any questions please feel free to email Greg Manz at gmanz@clemson.edu. After you sign up, we will send you some more information about the learning opportunities that we have coming up.
