|Is your computer broken and you don’t know why? Did you somehow get a sneaky virus and now your computer won’t work? Don’t worry! There is a free service on campus that will help you with your computer problems. This service is actually under the Community Center. If you walk into the mailroom and continue through the door and to the printer, simply look to the left and you will find the room. Once you tell them what is wrong, they will give you a sheet to sign, take your computer, and then send you on your way. They will probably keep it for a couple of days to determine what is wrong and then email you so you can get it. Your tuition pays for this service, so don’t be shy about bringing your computer to them!|

|The next staff member you will probably meet walking into the AIC is Mai. Mai is the Multicultural Advisor here in the AIC. She aids students specifically with multicultural backgrounds to succeed in college. She also advises multicultural student organizations and runs diversity programs as well as helpful college workshops. This year she is working on a really big project AMSLC (American Multicultural Student Leadership Conference). She is a kind, welcoming person, so come and talk to her anytime you can, no matter your background! She likes the everyday changes in the AIC and the day to day interaction with students. She likes to see that students are comfortable in the AIC as well as witnessing student growth from Freshman to Senior. She finds the changes in students exhilarating; from the moment they step into the AIC as new students to the moment they step out of the AIC as educated adults ready for the work world. She has been with the AIC for seven years and treasures all of the students that have passed through as well as the ones that have yet to come to the AIC.|

The Writing Center is a neat, efficient, and free way to get your papers edited. The staff is there to help guide you in your writing by pointing out unclear ideas and grammatical errors. Of course, they only make suggestions to your writing so that you retain authorship. It is up to you whether or not to take their advice. To make an appointment, simply call or go to the Tutoring and Learning Center and ask for a date and time. The Tutoring and Learning Center is open between 9am and 6pm Monday through Thursday, and 9am and 2pm on Friday. If you do not know where to go, walk past the Garden Café, past the gender neutral bathrooms and take the first left, or if you want to make it easier, simply call their number (920-465-2958.) Then, when it is time for your appointment, go to the Writing Center (Cofrin Library 109, on the right side of the hallway across from Cofrin Library) and give the tutor a copy of your paper and tell them the topic or question. They will help you make corrections.

|Today we are going to talk about the first staff member you will probably meet walking into the AIC. Her name is Vickie Kersten. She has a smile for everyone and is one of the most welcoming people you will ever meet. She is a support person for the AIC staff. She does meetings, orders supplies, reconciles the budget, and does anything the AIC staff needs. She loves all of the students that come in and loves sitting at the front desk, since everybody sees her first. Another thing she loves is that no two days are alike. She loves working with student employees and thinks it is fun to watch grow and learn to do new things. She says that this year is special because everyone is motivated to promote the AIC, which makes her enjoy her job even more! So don’t be shy and come in to say hi!|
