Students help test technology for VP debate

DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - In the days before hundreds of media descend upon Danville to cover the vice-presidential debate at Centre College, students at the liberal arts school were busy testing the technology that will be used during the event.

The team that installed the technology wanted to test it before the big day, and asked students to attempt to "break the network."

Assistant information technology director David Frey said students were asked to call people, power up wireless devices and plug in Internet connections at each station.

IT director Art Moore told The Advocate-Messenger (http://bit.ly/SAQEUF) that no major problems were found during the test. He said a few minor issues that came to light were easy to fix. Overall, he says they were pleased with how the test went.
