Connecting a School Whose Network Never Stands Still

Published 5 Jan 2016

Founded in the heart of Central New York in 1946, Utica College is an independent, private residential institution that offers a wide variety of challenging academic programs with ample social and recreational opportunities. The school’s lively “Never Stand Still” motto seems particularly fitting as the school is committed to initiatives such as leveraging technology to enhance student learning, boost staff productivity, lower the cost of education, and improve instruction retention rates. They are so dedicated to this mission, they have become one of two colleges to announce a reduction in Fall 2016 undergraduate costs, cutting tuition and fees by 42%. The college chose Extreme Network to replace their network infrastructure and help achieve their goals due to our innovative approach and deep experience in helping higher education clients achieve similar goals.
