Grant provides for new computer lab

Tabor College has built a new computer laboratory for its network administration major through a grant provided by the Charles A. Frueauff Foundation, Little Rock, Ark.

The new lab, built by Tabor maintenance staff in the Mary J. Regier Building, contains 10 student work stations and one teaching station complete with new computers, software, desks and chairs. The lab also houses a new netware server, data projector and printer.

Courses offered as a part of the network systems administration major will be held in this new addition. The cutting-edge equipment and software will prepare students for network administration as a career in today?s industry.

The lab will also have its own isolated network, allowing students to disassemble machines and participate in other hands-on applications that will not affect the greater Tabor network.

?We hope to attract a new group of freshmen to this major every year,? said Glen Diener, assistant professor of computer science and computer services/systems administrator. ?We want to prepare our students to be valuable for positions or internships in industry through the use of our new facility.?

In its 49 years of existence, the Frueauff Foundation has made grants to nonprofit organizations in the areas of health, higher education and social services.
