Student Technical Assistance and
Student Tech Assistants (Techies) provide basic technical and computer help to all women students or any Lane Community College student that is seeking a resource for technical help. We are passionate about technology and how it can empower to succeed and lead a happier and more productive life. We encourage students to learn and understand how to use and maintain a healthy computer and we provide aid in gaining the knowledge to do so.
The Student Tech assistants are supervised by Lisa Bohannan (the Career and Technical Education Advisor). Lisa can assist women students who are considering a CTE program or taking classes in a CTE certificate program. She also helps students get information about non-traditional careers.

Netbook Loaning Program:
The Netbook loaning program is a program. We lendyou a small Netbook computer for the term or longerif needed. The Netbook is excellent for transporting and using almost anywhere and helpful for school. Here is the information you need to get a Netbook.
1. Make an appointment with Lisa Bohannan. She will give you all the information you'll need, and get you all set up with a Netbook.
2. After getting your Netbook you have to make weekly or monthly appointments with a Techie, just to make sure the computer is up to date and is working properly.
The appointment is also a time to ask as many questions as needed or even time for tutoring. Look at our drop in times to see when we are available.
If you don't have a computer, there are many computer labs on campus that you can use. These computers all have some version of the Microsoft Office Suite, and some have the Adobe Creative Suite if you need to use a specific program for a class. There are also computer labs that offer drop-in tutoring.
