UVI on St. John
I got to work at the new UVI Academic Center on St. John this week. It turned out very nice. It has Several video conference rooms, office space and a student lounge area. There are only a few classes going on for the summer session but the fall is looking like a pretty good schedule. St. John students can come to the center to take a class via video conference instead of coming over to St. Thomas. They can also use the space to study or collaborate with students on other campuses. Right now the IT staff on St. Thomas is taking turns working shifts at the St. John center which seems to be working out pretty good. I know I enjoyed going over and looking forward to my next shift at the end of the month.
The St. John community is very excited about it as they should be. UVI on St. John, what a great idea :-)
