In February of 2018, 3D scanning and printing experts at NYU’s LaGuardia Studio arrived at NYU Langone Health to scan the face of William Fisher. The Studio was tasked with creating a highly-detailed, lifelike mask to replace the face he was donating to another. This is the story of the 34 hours Studio staff spent as part of this procedure.
NYU handles issues with the NYURoam Wireless network seriously and is always working to improve the service. However, there are a few things that are often interpreted as slow or unreliable wireless that are actually caused by something else. Here are a few potential culprits.
The LaGuardia Co-op provides computer workstations, collaboration space, and other resources.

In which case, the Co-op still has you covered.
