Re: Divine Link Important Information!

I didn't see any mention of electrical outlets. What is the outlet/power strip/extension cord situation like in the classroom for those of us with laptops?

There are several outlets along the walls of the auditorium (none in the middle). I would suggest, if you're able, to bring an extension cord if you want to sit someplace other than right next to the wall.

Jazakallah Khair for the tip!

Here is a quick and easy way to get to the Student Services Parking Garage.

Take the 401 East (Collectors), then the 400 North, and then get off at the Steeles exit. Turn left on Steeles Avenue (heading East), then continue all the way until you reach Keele Street. Turn right on Keele (heading South), then turn right at the first light (York Boulevard). Once you enter the campus through York Blvd, after the first light, turn left onto James Gillies St (there will be a small left turn lane in which you have to be in). After the stop sign, turn right into the Student Services parking garage.. and you're in!

Re: Divine Link Important Information!

Okay, alhamdulillah, I usually bring 1 or 2 power strips with me to each class, though I don't have an extension cord.

What about wireless? We will have any open access to wireless internet on the campus?

If some students forgot to make childcare arrangements, maybe the hospitality (contact info in one of the sticky threads) people can link them up with a babysitter? The parents will probably have to miss tonight's class, since it's too last-minute, but hopefully, they can make arrangements in time to be able to attend for the rest of the weekend...
