CampusLink employee travels country to repair computers

The sound of a circular saw shreds the air on the ground floor of the Reitz Union as Adam Loose cuts a board.

Loose, 25, an employee of CampusLink, is reinstalling the company's massive internet kiosk. He helped move it from the first floor last week.

"I'm actually the computer guy, but I know how to do woodworking so they take advantage of me," Loose said.

Loose is usually sent to repair computers in the kiosks that dot 40 colleges around the country.

This is the first time Loose has flown out to move a kiosk. CampusLink is based in San Diego.

Loose has been working almost nonstop to get the kiosk in its location since last week.

"Friday and Saturday was 32 hours no sleep, wasted hotel room," he said.

But Loose hasn't been completely alone in his task, he hired an assistant for the move and the UF maintenance department has given him use of its woodshop.

Loose, who is also the operations director for the company, helps design the kiosks inside and out, even choosing the shade of paint.

"Everyone asks why do they fly you out here, but who better than the designer?" he said.
