Student-run help desk helps provides free tech services for community

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Local college students are making connections with the community.

Western Technical College Computer Support Specialist students are providing free tech services.

The student-help desk offers computer software training, general troubleshooting, and some repairs.

It also has an e-waste drop-off.

Services are available online and over the phone too.

It’s a benefit for the community and students.

“A lot of places you have to pay. We get paid in experience. It’s a lot of younger people trying to get their hands on technology to fix up. It kind of gives us a taste of what we’ll be doing in our real job profession,” said Grant Butler, Help Desk Manager.

The support desk located in the Business Education Center.

It’s open from 3 to 6 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays and 9 a.m. to noon on Fridays.
