UV Link Sinks as students register

Without fail every semester since UVSC made the switch to the Banner software UVLink is useless when it comes to crunch time. It seems as soon as the semester starts UVLink's servers crash and students, faculty, and staff are left scrambling to accomplish the simplest tasks using backdoors and printouts.

Often administrators blame these problems on the fact that students at UVSC historically register later than sooner. While this certainly is the case you would expect the school to anticipate such a surge of late registrations and plan accordingly.

The big problem here is servers. Clearly the school needs to upgrade and expand its capabilities if it is going to handle 30,000 students some day.
