Starting in September 2014, for TechAge recent students: Is your computer acting up? Our "Ask the Pro's" computer clinic will have sessions each Wednesday from 12P until 2P

The clinic is really a free technical clinic for students who have taken a course in the past year. Bring in your ailing computer (just the main processor, not the monitor/printer).  Or just come in to talk over technical topics with our knowledgeable personnel.  Our pros solve most problems while you wait.

The "pros" take a summer break in July and August.
