Graduating Seniors: Remember to Back Up Your Files

Before you leave the College, back up your work from your U: drive, W: drive, email, and other resources. While you can use Amherst's VPN service to copy your work from off-campus, using VPN is significantly slower than backing up files on campus and you may encounter other issues. It is much easier and safer to back up your data while you are still on campus.

Graduating Seniors: Technology Transition after College

As you prepare for the many changes that will take place after graduation, we want to remind you of the technology needs you should plan for during your transition from Amherst College. You will want to address the following as needed:
access to Amherst College email, College-licensed software, files stored on network shares, ACData, and student printing. Access to these technology services will cease on a phased schedule, see details below.
