I'm in a unit with a wired connection. I bought a router to connect to the internet wall jack. Still no internet once I connect to router. What am I doing wrong here?

For some background. I thought I was unable to apply to the honors program because my GPA was too low but it was brought up just enough with my last semester.

Unfortunately by the time I realized this it was 3 days past the deadline. I emailed them and they said I would have to wait until next year for applying.

I am hoping to pursue graduate school after my undergrad and because I am going into the sciences, research opportunities will be very useful for me if I want to at least make the attempt at applying to a "high-end" masters program.

I know that there are research opportunities advertised within the honors program and I am wondering if people get access to those as a Freshman in that program. If that is the case is there any way for someone who is not in that program to participate in that research?

And if the case is that Freshman do not usually participate in the research what would you recommend to be able to set myself up for success in terms of getting into those research programs and what I can do when I start going in the Fall help that.

Current Major: Computer Science Intended Graduate Program: Machine Learning/AI

On a side note: I understand that I shouldn't be dead set on this from the get go, but this is my plan currently and would like advice pertaining to it.

I go to Northeastern Illinois University right now and am a communications, media and theater major. I was wondering if ISU had a major similar or what major my credits would transfer best to?

I just do not want to be pushed further back from graduating.

I'm taking some online summer classes and still want to take advantage of the gym here. Is there anywhere free to park near the gym? Want to avoid buying a parking pass this summer if I can.

1

Online summer courses can be hit-or-miss, so I wanted to see what people have to say about it. I don't need the lab for the course, so it seems like a less-than-terrible idea.

I'm starting in the Fall and I am wondering if there are any discord servers used as a sort of common place for people on their computers alot.

I couldn't find anything in the subreddit and given the amount of people actually on this sub I don't know if creating one would garner much traction but I think it would be beneficial for people who want to organize any sort of studying, game online with people from the college, and various other things.

If nothing does exist and there is enough interest I could work with some people to try and get one set up. However I do wonder if the fact that discord is geared towards gaming will dissuade people from joining.

Thoughts?

I'm a garage inventor living in Chenoa, Illinois, and I've been invited to speak in Athens, Greece on May 5th to the redmud.org valorisation conference about some research I've conducted. Red mud is the by-product of aluminum manufacture, and my research indicates that it should be possible to create large grid-scale energy storage systems from it, alleviating several problems associated with storage of the waste, wasted renewable energy overproduction, and some economic benefits. I'd like the opportunity to tune my talk (only about 15 minutes), if you're in the area.

I'm going to a show Friday night with a buddy. It looks like there are a lot of bars near The Castle. Which ones are worth checking out?

Just wanting to let everyone know that we started a new Podcast hoping to give some insight into the industry for anyone pursuing a career in construction. We are a SoCal (Anaheim) Contractor who does a lot of work for most of the Regional/National/International Players, and have developed some good relationships over the years with many of the G.C.'s

We see people often asking what path they should take in their career or what certain Jobs entail. We are trying to answer those questions. We would love to hear from any listeners on how to improve, or what would be more useful to you in your career.

Anyway, it’s a labor of love on our part, and we hope you can both enjoy it and benefit from it. We are shooting for release 1 new episode on the first of each month at the moment. We will see if there is any interest as things move forward!

The College of Education is hiring students! Any majors are accepted - must be currently enrolled in 6 or more credit hours.

If you're a problem solver and enjoy working with people, this is the job for you.

We have two positions posted on the ILSTU Jobs site that close on May 4th:
* Help Desk Support Technician - Posting Number: 0710571
* Flexible Learning Spaces Student Staff - Posting Number: 0710562

 

FLS position has weekday and weekend hours available from 7:45a-8:30p and proposed starting date would be Mid-May. Help Desk position is 7:45a-5:00p M-F and proposed starting date would be Mid-May OR Mid-August.

 

Good customer service skills and problem solving skills are a must for both positions.

 

If you're interested in applying for the Flexible Learning Spaces position, I strongly recommend you stop by Studio Teach, talk to the FLS staff, and get a little familiar with the technology available.

 

If you're interested in applying for the Help Desk Position, know that you will be expected to provide phone, remote, and desktop support for our customers. If you're good with people and like to solve problems, but are not familiar with technology, apply anyway. We have had numerous non-IT students pass through this position with no previous experience in IT who picked up quickly through on the job training and became excellent employees and leaders in their position.

 

Opportunities for increased pay are available. Both positions close on May 4th, so apply now!

I have a friend staying with me next semester and I don't know what to do about parking for him. If there is no free parking anywhere then what would be the cheapest over night parking.

Hey guys,

Recently I made a post about what my chances were of getting in. I’m happy to say that the odds of slim to none were beaten!

I just found out that I got accepted as an Undeclared Major and wanted to know if this changes anything as opposed to if I initially got in to the Computer Science - Web Computing major?

What can I expect/ what are the differences coming in as a Undeclared Major?

Also while I’m on the topic of my Major, I read multiple posts about Computer Science but none of them really seem to fit what I’m trying to study.

I want to focus on Web Development and that field.

Aside from HTML,CSS, and Javascript does do school teach any of these languages:

Vue Laravel PHP mySQL Angular Node

Basically what I’m asking is does the school teach/prepare you for modern frameworks because I know that different frameworks are always changing.

Thanks!

Pretty much what the title says.

I applied on literally the day of the deadline at like 11:45pm. The online portal says “Congratualtions on your admission” but I never sent my ACT or transcripts. Am I in?

My sister does go here currently but would they really just accept me because of that?

So I've had some posters up in assorted Bird Calls around the campus, with a nifty QR code to get people quickly redirected to this facebook group. However, there's only been one new person sadly enough lol. It might be that needing to verify ILSTU email for this "official" FB group is a bit too steep a step. Or is the cause something greater?

Would it be smart to refactor the approach into a Nintendo / casual gaming club like was suggested by someone else a month or two back? Should some sort of meeting time and area be actually described, as with the Junior Heroes Kingdom Hearts club (which as far as I can tell is a real thing)? Any suggestions are welcome. Would be nice to get this thing somewhat official in preparation for the Fall semester.

I'm going to be starting at ISU next year and I can't wait. One of the questions I had though was about if I decided to change majors after my freshman year. My major going into freshman year is going to be Criminal Justice Sciences but I am nervous I will end up switching my major because it seems so many people do. If that major didn't work out, I think my second choice would be something in the medical field. If I changed my major to nursing beginning my sophomore year would I still be able to graduate on time? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I just couldn't find an answer. Thanks everybody!
