The High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster at WSU, which was initiated in 2020, provides students and faculty with the computational resources they need to succeed. Any member of the WSU community and those outside of WSU who are KBOR constituents can request access to the HPC cluster. To request account at HPC, visit the HPC website. For those who are new to HPC, they are encouraged to review the HPC Users Guide.

The HPC is also pleased to inform the campus community that WSU researchers can access the Pete Supercomputer, which is an HPC cluster at Oklahoma State University supported by OSU’s High-Performance Computing Center. It is worth noting that OSU was recently awarded a Major Research Instrumentation award by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to build and develop a new supercomputer. This award was a joint effort between OSU, Arkansas State University, WSU, Kansas State University, the University of Tulsa, the University of Central Oklahoma, the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, and the Great Plains Network. More information about the award can be found on the NSF’s website.

Those interested in the potential of HPC to accelerate their research processes, be sure to stop by its table at the GRASP symposium. The team members at the symposium will be able to share examples of how HPC has been used in various fields and answer any questions about the technology. It also invite attendees to learn more about the applications of HPC in research and discover how it can help them achieve their research goals.

Did you know the Shocker Store carries fresh sandwiches, desserts and other grab-and-go items? These options are perfect while on the way to class or for a quick lunch between meetings.

Supplies are limited each week. Swing by the Shocker Store in the Rhatigan Student Center to try them today.

Cops support shocks and you can too!

The WSU Police Department challenges all students, faculty and staff to help fill the Shocker Support Locker for students in need.

It would make a great Valentine’s Day gift if Shockers have security. Bring items (canned or dry food items, hygiene products, etc.) to the police department or anywhere else on campus during the month of February, and WSU police officers will pick them up and get them to the Shocker Support Locker.

New Operating Hours. The Locker will open from 12 to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday starting Tuesday, Jan. 17.

The Shocker Support Locker is adjusting its hours of operation for the spring 2023 semester. The locker will now be open from noon-3 p.m. Monday through Friday, starting Tuesday, Jan. 17.
