DOBSON — A computer or laptop that is not working properly can cause a lot of frustration, so Surry Community College’s Technology Club is hosting a PC Repair Day on April 20 to help computer users.

The drop-off time for anyone wishing to have their computer repaired is between 9 a.m. and noon at the college’s main campus, 630 S. Main St., Dobson in Room 145 of the E Building. Computers must be picked up between noon and 2 p.m. the same day.

Club members will be working on computers that need a performance boost, virus removal, and/or hardware/software installation. These services will be provided at no cost to the customers, but club donations will be accepted.

Surry Community College offers a degree and certificate in information technology which prepares graduates for employment in the technology sector as designers, testers, support technicians, system administrators, developers. It also can prepare students to work as programmers who use computer software and/or hardware to design, process, implement and manage information systems in specialties such as database services, security, business intelligence, healthcare informatics and others depending on the technical path selected within this curriculum.

Surry also offers certificates in computer programming and development, network management, and web technologies.
