"Free Wi-Fi is now available in the Library/Study Cubicles, Student Center/Food Court and is available during the times that the Library and Student Center are opened." Information Technology director Lee Krichmar said.
Wi-Fi is going to be available to students at no cost, as long as the student is currently enrolled.
To access the free Wi-Fi the faculty/student can log in using their faculty information/student I.D. number and their password.
The steps to access the Internet are as follows;
1. Open your wireless connection in your laptop, PC or MAC.
2. Click on Connect to Cerritos College wireless.
3. Enter your student information and password; faculty members enter your faculty information and password.
4. It will re-direct you to the Cerritos College homepage and you can start browsing from there.
Lawrence Alfred Ervin III, Graphic Design major, said, "Offering students the wireless Internet through the Student Center is beneficial because students like myself can access resources available and study outside the computer lab."
According to Ms. Krichmar, the Information Technology department is hoping to expand the free Wi-Fi access to students in the future and they are currently searching for funds to support the expansion of this project.
"It is a very smart idea," David Nguyen, English major added, "and students like myself can centralize and organize ideas by using the Internet at the student center."
Ms. Krichmar also said, "We are very excited to provide this new service to our students!"
