December 2010 Update

Happy Advent!

This has been an exciting semester for KMU.

The big news is that we've made great progress on the creation of a modern I.T. lab:

  •  Thanks to a generous donation from our governor, we were able to purchase several new computers.  
  • We are in the process of transforming one of the large (until recently unfinished) buildings near our Lupandilo Nursing School into the primary site of our Information Technology department's computer lab, offices and classrooms.
  • Our V-Sat antenna should be installed any day now. If all goes to plan, our students and community will have access to high-speed internet (fast enough for video conferencing) by Christmas. 

In order for KMU to pay its hefty monthly internet bill, all computer lab users will have to pay to use the center. Our goal is keep this usage fee low so that students can afford to do on-line research and develop a high comfort level with using the internet that can only come from hundreds of hours of practice and exploration. If you are interested in subsidizing the I.T. lab's monthly expenses, please contact our director, Rev. Mande.
