SITS will be closed until classes start back up on August 25th.
There is always a possibility that something can go wrong with personal computers. However, most users may not have the time or knowledge to assess and correct these problems. Here is where Student Information Technology Services (SITS) comes into the picture: to serve the University of West Georgia (UWG) students' computer needs.
SITS will provide a free service to UWG students to help in finding solutions to their software and/or hardware problems with their personal computers.
Students in Newnan have access to the same services as students on the Main Campus. You can find more information about Newnan SITS here.

Still Using Windows XP?
As of April 8, 2014, Microsoft has officially ended their support for Windows XP. This means that there will be no more security updates for computers running Windows XP, thus putting you at a greater risk of getting viruses and other types of malware. For more information and assistance on upgrading to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 (Which we provide to students), please see this PDF or feel free to come in and talk to a SITS employee.
