With all the different types of computing devices available these days have you ever wondered “What kinds of devices would be right for me to be using?” It’s almost like one needs a therapy session to answer this question. There’s desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, smart watches, etc. Then there are all the operating systems. There are so many similarities and differences between these systems. In this session Orv Jordahl, member of the Electronic Technology Committee, will explore the different kinds of computing devices on the market today and discuss what use cases each would be good for, hopefully to equip you to make choices that are better random luck.

Food pantry contributions   

The pantry selected for this event is Goodman Community Food Pantry.  Both cash and checks payable to GCC Food Pantry will be accepted.


Enter Oakwood grounds at the traffic light at Island Drive and Mineral Point Road. Take the left fork and then the second driveway on the right to enter visitor underground parking. Push the button for assistance. Park in any visitor stall; take elevator to first floor lobby where signs or a receptionist will help. When you exit the underground parking the garage door opens automatically. You may also park in a surface visitor spot (marked spaces along the drive and up the hill toward the large lot).

On foot, enter Heritage (6205 Mineral Point Road) at its main entrance (third driveway on the right, at stop sign) or enter the auditorium doors directly from the lower drive.

If taking the bus, Madison Metro Bus Routes 14 and 67 stop on Mineral Point Rd in front of Oakwood, if traveling easterly, or across Mineral Point Rd from Oakwood if traveling westerly. 

Here is a link to the Oakwood Village University Woods campus map showing the location of underground parking lot and surface parking spaces. The location of the Arts and Education Center is also highlighted in yellow.
