We would like to address an inaccuracy in the article and acknowledge that both the Sheridan Corporate Communications and Information Technology departments work collaboratively.
Beginning on Saturday, November 22 at 11 p.m. until 1 a.m. on Sunday, November 23, IT staff will be applying software patches and upgrading our Papercut software. Consequently, general-purpose network printing across all Sheridan campuses will be unavailable during this timeframe.
If you're a Mobile Computing student who is starting classes in January, you are strongly encouraged to attend one of the Laptop Readiness Sessions that will be held in December and January. These are short, but important sessions where you will log into Sheridan's network with your laptop and install software required for your courses.

If you are a Sheridan student using a Mac for course work, or a Sheridan staff member using a Mac for your day-to-day work, it is NOT recommended that you upgrade to Mac OSX 10.10 (Yosemite) at this time—you may experience bugs in the OS, incompatibilities with some of your software, and potentially, Sheridan services* that you are currently using.
