Welcome to the Fuqua Technology Commons: FTC Home

The Fuqua Technology Commons is the media center for H-SC. We are located in the Bortz Library.

The Fuqua Technology Commons

The Fuqua Technology Commons is the academic technology center for the Hampden-Sydney College campus.  Located on the main floor of the Bortz Library, the FTC is where students, faculty, and staff can gain assistance in the use of various hardware and software.  We loan video cameras, still cameras, digital voice recorders, presentation clickers, and other equipment.  We also maintain the classroom presentation technology along with presentation technology for use in other spaces on campus.  If you need help with Canvas, working with PowerPoint or any of the Microsoft Office products, editing an image, or creating a .pdf from a paper document, we can help.  Stop by and see us.

Print from your laptop or mobile device

Introducing e-print.

You can now print from your own laptop, tablet, pad, or even phone from the Fuqua Technology Commons.  Apple users should only have to change from the library wireless network to the FTC Printer network, then print from the HP Laserjet 600 printer.  PC users may be able to perform the same changes, but they might have to download the printer driver, which they can do from this link.

Please feel free to provide feedback.  Do you like this service?

Recycle your electronics

The Fuqua Technology Commons promotes the recycling of electronics as it is preferable to dumping technology into landfills.  Prince Edward County has several locations (Worsham, Tuggle landfill, Prospect 460W, and Rice 460E) where residents can dispose of electronics.  STEPS in Farmville also accepts electronics recycling.  Although this is not an advertisement, we wanted to make you aware that Best Buy has a recycling program for technology you are prepared to discard.  Please see the Best Buy Recycling web page for more information.  If you are interested in reading a bit more on this topic, there was an interesting piece in the Washington Post titled Promoting the Recycling of E-waste.
