The STC Host Committee would like to announce that the Half Day Networking Activities are available on the registration site.
 
Cowabunga Bay Water Park – Cowabunga Bay is 25 acres of Summer, Surfin’ fun. There’s something for everyone whether you are cresting a wave in our giant wave pool or sipping a Pina Colada in a Caban-A-Rama private cabana. After you’ve challenged the 72’ drop of Zuma ZOOMA and riden the largest man-made wave in the WORLD you can grab a delicious meal at Bullwinkle’s Boardwalk Grill.  Spend the day exploring the awesome park!
Hoover Dam Power Plant Tour – Named one of the Top 10 Construction Achievements of the 20th Century, Hoover Dam continues to draw crowds more than 70 years after its creation. A National Historic Landmark, Hoover Dam is the highest concrete dam in the Western Hemisphere, standing at more than 725 feet above the Colorado River. With 17 generators producing 4 billion kilowatts of electricity a year, it also is one of the country’s largest hydroelectric power facilities. Operation and maintenance of the facility are solely supported by revenue from power sales.

Now Accepting Nominations for the Senti-Merriman Award

The Senti-Merriman Award was created in honor of Sandy Senti and Jeff Merriman, the organization’s founding members. Sandy and Jeff were the driving force behind the creation of the ResNet Symposium and its early success was the result of their commitment to residential technology and their shared respect for the contributions of those who make ResNet programs possible: students living in residence halls and ResNet student staff.

For the 2016 Student Technology Conference at University of Nevada, Las Vegas, the Senti-Merriman Award will cover the registration fee for the conference as well as on-campus housing and travel expenses. Funding for the award is provided, in part, by the silent auction, held annually since the 2009 conference at St. Cloud State University. As in the past, the nominating institution will be required to send a staff member to accompany the award recipient at the conference.

Additional information on the award, such as how to apply, is available at http://resnetinc.org/student-technology-conference/senti-merriman-award/. Nominations are due by Monday, April 4.

If you have any questions, would like any additional information, or have any thoughts on the award, please contact me at jim.rizzo@resnetinc.org.
