This past weekend was our annual Back-To-School/Freshman Arrival Weekend (BTS/FAW) on campus. Basically, it's the weekend prior to the beginning of Fall Semester when our IT department provides assistance to incoming freshmen and returning students getting connected to our campus wireless network as well as any other computing needs they may encounter when they arrive.
I have been volunteering for BTS/FAW since 2006 and I can honestly say that it's a fun experience (even though working 12 days in a row is not too fun). You get a chance to meet students (and their parents) as well as get a chance to see what technology they are bringing to campus each year. Students bring interesting gadgets to campus. The new buzzword this year was MMD (Multiple Mobile Devices). On average, I assisted students who had at least 3 devices (laptop, smartphone and tablet). We even had students with at least 5-6 devices!
Overall, a lot of Macs, a lot of iPhones, a lot of Android phones, a lot of iPads and a lot of happy students.
