  • Reminder: Migration to Windows 10 Operating system   May 7, 2019, 2:11 PM CDT

This presents a potential burden of risk to Rice’s computing environment. If you have plans to be away for an extended period of time this summer, consider upgrading your computer system to Windows 10 before your departure.
