Greetings from Australia, where we’re sixteen hours in the future from Philly! Stephen here. Today I’d like to introduce you to a brand-new TicketLeap event page. And yes, it’s sexy.
I’m thrilled to announce that TechServ is a part of TicketLeap’s new event page preview. So what does this mean? For UNIV-101 students, it’s means RSVPing for a meeting has an entirely new look and feel.
The new page look very different, but navigating it should now be much easier. The first tab is the Home tab, which is like a summary of the event.
The About tab is exactly what its name suggests: information about the event.
The Map tab should be especially useful for first-timers. While there was a map in the past, it’s now stupidly obvious on how to get to TechServ (for the most part; we can’t do anything about the MacAlister basement being called the Ground Floor.)
Now for the part you probably actually care about: tickets. Click the Tickets tab and select the “performance” (read: meeting) you want to attend.
Just like before, select 1 ticket. However, now, instead of going to the Checkout page, you’ll need to click Add To Cart. Turns out TicketLeap introduced a Shopping Cart at some point that I completely missed the memo for (whoops! Note to self: check account options more often.) That said, you can now cue up tickets for multiple meetings in one go. No need to checkout for every single meeting.
When you’ve finished signing up for tickets like there’s no tomorrow, click the Checkout button.
The checkout page should be the same as before. To remove a ticket, change the quantity to 0, then click Update Quantities.
One thing that has not changed (yet) is the event calendar. It may get updated at a later time, but for now, it’s still on the old design. Nonetheless, it should have the same info as the new event page does.
If you have any issues with the new event page, please let us know so we can notify TicketLeap. It is still in beta and there are a few known issues (mainly on the admin side of things).
Enjoy the sexy new page!
It’s that time again. TechServ is thrilled to announce we will be holding another community genius bar this year on November 9th at HELP Philadelphia from 10am until 3pm. As usual, this event is free and open to anyone. If you have a computer that is having technical difficulties, bring it in and we’ll check it out. We’ll fix it if we can, but sometimes, there are issues that are too complex to fix on the spot. We also cannot guarantee a fix we make will be permanent nor that it is the best fix possible, but we’ll always try our best. If your device is in still under warranty, we recommend contacting your manufacturer’s support instead, but we’ll still be happy to take a look.
Check out the Facebook event!
So, if your computer needs some help, swing by HELP Philadelphia on November 9th anytime between 10am and 3pm. We’ll be in the Community Room. HELP Philadelphia is located at 4910 Wyalusing Street, Philadelphia, PA.
For additional information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a heads up, TicketLeap has announced they are making some changes to pages for events (UNIV-101 students, this is the page you use to reserve your spots at meetings). These changes aren’t yet live to everyone, but TechServ has expressed interest in taking the redesign for a spin early. Currently, there is no set date for the go-live, but if things suddenly look very different on TicketLeap, don’t freak out. If you’d like to preview what the redesign looks like, TicketLeap has a preview on the page their very first event they’re putting together themselves.
As always, if you’re having an issue with using TicketLeap for Techserv, let us know and we’ll pass it on to TicketLeap if need be.
Where: University Crossings 149*
When: Sat. October 12 @ 2 PM

Hey there UNIV-101 students! We’re excited to kick off a new academic year with weekly meetings held this term on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6p to 8p. However, we operate a bit differently than some other UNIV-101 opportunities you may have seen. If you haven’t already, make sure you read our page on UNIV-101 info. And we mean read it in full.
If you must insist on a tl;dr edition, please be aware that if you want UNIV-101 credit for TechServ, you cannot simply show up to a meeting. Last year, we implemented a policy that restricts the number of UNIV-101 students per meeting to four and you must reserve a spot. This is for a couple reasons: 1) we just don’t have the space in our workshop, 2) this helps ensure all UNIV-101 students have something to do, and 3) at TechServ, safety is one of those things we simply “care” about. To reserve a spot, you must “purchase” a ticket through TicketLeap, who we’ve chosen as our reservation system. Now, while we do say “purchase”, tickets are free. Since TicketLeap’s primary business is to sell tickets, they use the word Purchase on their site.
Once you have reserved a ticket, come to the meeting with your ticket. You can either print it, or add it to Passbook in iOS (or for you droids, show it on your phone). We scan all tickets at the door. If you do not have a ticket (and that means a valid ticket), we will not honor your UNIV-101 minutes for the meeting. For the full terms and conditions, read the UNIV-101 info page in full. We generally do not give exceptions.
To reserve your tickets, click the stupid huge button below.
Our Welcome Back Week Game Show Night event schedule for tonight at 6pm had to be canceled.
This was due to the minimal cooperation we received from Event Services – please feel free to complain in their direction. They have requirements that the OCA itself does not – there was no way to meet their demands in time. The OCA, however, was quite helpful in attempting sort out this issue – many thanks to them.
We are in the process of planning more events and should have a great lineup for this term.
