OIT is @RUDanceMarathon This Weekend! #RUDM2012

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is helping out all weekend long during the Rutgers Dance Marathon charity event which is held yearly to support the Embrace Kids Foundation.   This is a fun and worthy event that hundreds of Rutgers students participate in each year.  For more on the event, click here.

Over the last three years, about 75 members of our staff (student and full-time staff) have volunteered to help out during Dance Marathon.  This year the marathon is taking place throughout this weekend (Saturday and Sunday – March 31st and Apri 1st).

We have set up  bank of computers where those who are participating in RU Dance Marathon can get online to check their email, make song requests, add entries to the marathon’s blog.  They can also use the built-in webcams to take pictures and post them on the RU Dance Marathon Facebook Page.  Our staff is on hand to assist in making sure this equipment is running smoothly and to help anyone having trouble using the computers.

Once again, we are looking forward to helping out for the fourth consecutive year! FTK!
