Hughes-Trigg says goodbye to Computer Corner

After 12 years of operation, the SMU Computer Corner is leaving its Hughes-Trigg location. April 4 is the last day to purchase items directly from the store.

According to an email sent out to undergraduate and graduate students on March 22, SMU IT communications cite economic reasons for the closure.

“We are evaluating options for providing the computer sales and repair services that have been provided by the SMU Computer Corner,” the email read.

The Student Senate Governing Board is currently considering several options for replacing the storefront. Among the ideas is a spirit center.

“We’d like to see it, whatever it is, here before the summer starts,” Travis Carlile, HTSC building manager, said. “So when incoming freshmen come into for AARO, they have something to come to.”

While the storefront might be gone, students and faculty can still purchase software and computer products through the HiED, Inc. website.
