• IT staffers pitch in to help another Texas university after devastating fire

    Baylor IT staff deliver computersI was flipping channels one night last week when I came across live footage of a fire on the campus of Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) in San Antonio. In the fire, the school’s Main Building — a beautiful building, in some ways similar to Baylor’s Old Main — suffered a lot of damage, including the loss of one of its two main spires and also part of the roof. (Thankfully, no one was injured.) Built in 1895, Main Building holds classrooms, dorm rooms, a cafeteria and much of the campus’ computer infrastructure.

    Recognizing the need, Baylor’s IT department jumped in to help, donating 30 desktop computers and all accessories to the OLLU. Daniel Iturbe and Joshua Ogden, both members of Baylor’s IT staff, made the six-hour round trip to deliver the computers, which will be used in a computer lab that replaces one damaged in the fire.

    Sic ’em, Baylor staff, for helping another university in need!
