WiFi Hotspot for Southern WV Public School Students Now Available at Bluefield State College
Bluefield State College’s Bluefield campus is now a WiFi hotspot for southern West Virginia public school students who may not otherwise have internet access. The “Kids Connect Initiative” offered by West Virginia Governor Jim Justice’s office was developed to expand broadband internet availability.
The Kids Connect WiFi hotspot on BSC’s campus is the parking lot adjacent to the June O. Shott Sportsplex and baseball field, adjacent to Dickason Hall. The equipment to create the hotspot was provided by the Governor’s Office and was installed by BSC’s Information Technology staff.
West Virginia’s County Schools Superintendents will receive login credentials to access the WiFi and their experience on the web will be filtered.
