I am very thankful for the hard work of Jeff Robbins. He helped us with many things for our busy Career Fair week. The two biggest were his initiation of talks with the network folks to make the employer experience better at our Career Fairs. They established an SSID called UIConference that they will turn on and off based on what is going on around campus. We had over 350 employer reps on the floor of the Kibbie Dome. We have always had a hassle with AirVandalGuest after a few people logged onto it. Not one complaint yesterday out of all of those people. What a huge benefit for our employers, therefore our students that we can bring to bear each time we have a large event.

Second, he helped us get set up with the video conferencing cart for our employer advisory council meeting today. It worked flawlessly for the remote users and those of us here on campus. Thank you Jeff!
