3 College Junior

4 College Freshman

Computers: When one lab is not available, there is a guarantee computer at a different building. The need for a personal computer is extremely important. During finals, most printers are already shut down but that is when the most extra credit is offered.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Alabama A&M University has at least 4 computer labs on campus. The Wi-Fi can sometimes become weak to where students couldn't have access to the computer. The computers seem to be in good condition.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Having access to computer labs 24/7 come in handy on your "long days." The WIFI, network reliability, and speed is horrible. It's best that you have your own computer.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There are a lot of computer labs on campus, but few students know about them. There are computer labs in the library, some of the dormitories, and in most of the major departments. There are a lot of computers in the computer lab, but unfortunately, not all of the computers work. This tends to be very frustrating when you are trying to complete last-minute assignments. Another frustrating part about the computer lab is that the printers break down randomly. It's highly advised that students have their own computers and printers because there will definitely be times when either the computers or the printers will be experiencing technical difficulties. Most of the computer labs open at 8 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. Students can print as many pages as they like for free in the computer lab. Also, students can use the computers in the computer lab for pleasure; they do not have to be doing school-related work to use the computers.

The computers in the library are a little different. For one thing, students have to pay 10 cents for printing. Also, students are not supposed to access their Facebook or Twitter accounts while using the computers in the library. Students must only work on school-related assignments. However, if a student manages to sneak onto his or her Facebook or Twitter, there is no real punishment other than a scowl and mini-lecture from the school librarian.
