Gab & GROW

Thank you to listening to all the episodes of Gab & GROW this semester.  If you missed any of them, all 37 are up and available for listening at any time on your favorite podcast app.  We’ve got a link to SoundCloud® to the left in the QR code.

Next semester, we’ll have an entirely new set of podcasts coming your way.  Topics will include interviews with some senior administrators, as well as more resources and ideas for ways to make your academic journey successful.

Lastly, we’d like to thank all the experts who joined us in putting this new podcast together.  Their help and advice is invaluable, and we certainly hope that you’ve been able to get to know one or two of them better because you’ve visited the resources we’ve talked about on the show!

Cable TV information:

For a new list of the updated cable channels, please click on this link.

Your digital television must have a QAM tuner (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) to work with the school’s cable service. The QAM tuner allows your TV to receive high definition cable programming without a cable set top box. Unfortunately, some less expensive TVs come with a low quality QAM tuner that may not be able to pick up all the digital channels. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.


A NTSC (National Television System Committee) tuner is not compatible. This TV will require a digital-to-analog converter box to view television signals. (See information below to purchase a converter).


An ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner can receive digital signals but is not compatible with the school’s cable system.


Here is a link to an informal compatibility reference for newer devices. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.
