Computer trouble? Wi-Fi not working? Need to borrow equipment? Meadows Tech Effect provides year-round effective solutions to these problems, helping students, faculty and staff operate at the highest level.

Student workers Mark Valenzuela and Michelle Del Rio work at the Tech Effect desk, fielding a variety of questions and requests. “Typically, students come by to check stuff out like a camera or tripod, that kind of thing,” says Valenzuela.

“All they have to do is present their SMU student i.d. card.”
