Sys/Net (short for "Systems and Networking") is an office of ITS that is responsible for maintaining the College's physical computer network, including ResNet, as well as its servers. It is located in the basement of the CMC. Over the years, Sys/Net has employed many student workers who have always kept Sys/Net a close community.
Sys/Net student workers have made CMC-013 (known colloquially as Room 13) their home for over ten years.
There are many first-person recollections of Sys/Net happenings on the Sys/Net Musings caucus item.
Sys/Net (unofficially) maintains a community mailing list as well.
The following is an incomplete list of Sys/Net staff, both past and present:
- Dave Flynn '04 (Present)
- Rich Graves (Present)
- Chris Dlugosz '92 (Present)
- Les Lacroix '79 (Present)
