BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida Atlantic University, spending tremendous amounts of money in its efforts to be taken seriously as an academic and medical school powerhouse, may need to budget more for IT support. Our friends at UPressOnline, the school’s newspaper, report that FAU’s registration servers are crashing, preventing and delaying students from registering for the spring semester.
According to UPressOnline:
“When course registration opened up for seniors at midnight Tuesday Nov. 15, the surge in activity caused the server to crash, according to Jason Ball, Chief Information Officer of Information Resource Management, which handles FAU’s servers. The following night the server had to be restarted again after juniors caused it to slow down, he added.”
New servers are not expected to be operational until March of 2012. Little consolation for students studying for exams, preparing for the holidays, all while trying to lock in the classes they need for next semester.
