EGCC to host computer clinic


Eastern Gateway Community College’s IT club will host a computer clinic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Founders Hall on the Jefferson County main campus. This service is open to students, faculty, staff, and the public for diagnosis and repair of both hardware and software problems of Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 computers. While this service is free, a donation to the IT club is appreciated.

Participants should bring their computer, charger, and any software. The event is first come, first served and the typical repair can take several hours, so the earlier participants arrive, the better. A 50/50 raffle also will be offered and the winner does not need to be present.
