Computing Services Maintenance for tonight, December 1st

**This will be the last planned maintenance night until after finals week and grades are turned in.

Beginning at 9:00 PM, Employee, lab and TEC Classroom PCs will receive critical security updates to Windows, Google Chrome, Firefox, Thunderbird, Flash and Acrobat Reader. Employees are encouraged to log off but leave their computers on when leaving work for the day. This will assist the installation of these patches and minimize any impact.

Also beginning at 9:00 PM, Computing Services will be installing updates on several back-end systems. Brief reboots will occur, but impact for our customers is expected to be minimal.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. As always, if you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at 7741 or contact us via email at

AIDS Memorial Quilt panels on display in SUB

In observance of AIDS Awareness Week at ASU, three panels of the historic AIDS Memorial Quilt, including one from the San Luis Valley, will be on display in the Grizzly Mall Court of the Student Union Building. Visit the quilt panels on Tuesday, November 29 and Wednesday, November 30 between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm, and on Thursday, December 1 – World AIDS Day – from 10 am until the panels are retired following the annual AIDS Candlelight Vigil at 5:30 pm.

The AIDS Memorial Quilt comes out of the NAMES Project and began in San Francisco in 1987 during the AIDS pandemic. Friends and families who had lost a loved one were invited to create a panel in remembrance of that person’s life. The quilt continues to grow and weighs over 54 tons with over 48,000 panels representing more than 94,000 lives lost. It is the largest ongoing piece of folk art in the world and an official American treasure. The AIDS Memorial Quilt has been displayed in venues as large as the national mall in Washington DC, and in smaller locations one panel at a time to promote healing, awareness and action around HIV and AIDS. The campus and community are encouraged to visit the quilt panels and take part in the Vigil on Thursday.
