WRECK: Do your job, Bobcat Net
There aren’t many things considered an absolute necessity, but college students probably agree that a solid Wi-Fi connection is a must. With the tuition we pay to attend Quinnipiac, frequent interruption in Bobcat Net’s connection just isn’t acceptable. There’s nothing more annoying than that pop-up saying “You are not connected to the internet.”
It’s a love/hate relationship with Bobcat Net these days. Yes, it’s wireless, allowing me connect pretty much everywhere. However, I spend 90 percent of the time waiting to reconnect, forcing the benefits of wireless out the window.
Also, I suffer from this illness called procrastination. It’s very serious. When Sunday night came around, I was scrambling to finish a paper to submit before midnight. But, of course, Bobcat Net was down, and I had to wait until 12:02 a.m. to get it in. And forget about trying to video chat. That’s just out of the question. I can’t even get a full sentence out before being disconnected. As a student of the 21st century, a lack of Internet seems completely avoidable. Get it together, Bobcat Net. You literally have one job: be reliable and running.
