Farewell from Stephen

Howdy folks,

Stephen here one last time. Saturday evening was my last night at TechServ as both Head of Special Projects and Vice President on account of graduation. Eric Rock will be assuming my role of Vice President effective immediately, and Head of Special Projects is being merged into other existing positions.

TechServ has grown substantially from when I started during my Freshmen year five years ago. It still is growing, and even with the discontinuation of our main source of new members, a course called UNIV-101, the eight new members who joined us in September and remain with us now is a very positive sign for the future. Later this month, TechServ will be moving from its long-time home of MacAlister 0020 to a new space on the third floor, which will be shared with a new Linux Users Group and DragonLAN, the latter of which we have collaborated with previously. As we use Ubuntu at TechServ, I expect many new collaborations to come with the new office mates.

The future looks bright for TechServ, and while the new space will be shared with two other groups, it will provide much-needed space, and I expect new, very strong, interdisciplinary bonds to be formed among TechServ and the organizations the room will be shared with.

For our WebServ clients, your main point of contact will transition to our System Administrators. If you need them, they can be reached via our main email of techserv[at]drexel[dot]edu. It will be shared with them via Trello, a tool used internally.

I wish the best of luck to TechServ, and I’m confident it will continue to go strong as new officers take the helm both over the summer and at the start of the next academic year in September. I’m also sure those new officers will have a fantastic team of members supporting them.
