4 College Freshman

Computers: The computer situation is well up to date, everything is new and improved. There are choices between macs and pcs as well.

2 College Freshman

Computers: WiFi sucks in dorms and pretty much everywhere on campus unless you sit right next to a server or buy your own router

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are a lot of computer labs around campus. Internet speed is kind of slow sometimes. You don't really need to bring a printer because you can just print papers at the library.

3 College Senior

Computers: Were going through a bit of an updating period, so it's getting a lot better, but a few years ago, the internet and the computers available were the worst.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: My most frustrating thing about the computer issue was that when I was preparing to come here freshmen year it was implied that a mac would be best and it was stated that a printer was needed for every student and neither of those statements are true. I get scholarships because I fall in to the needs based category here at the college. I couldn't afford or expect my mom to get me an apple. She managed to get me a laptop. The money that she spent on the useless printer could have been spent on something else that was truly important.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

For a university that often looks to be stuck in another century (complete with a castle), technology on campus is accessible and well updated. Computers are everywhere. Every main building, as well as all of the residence halls, has computer labs. There are PCs and Macs, most of which are usually in working condition. Access is not a problem. The only problem is congestion and speed. Things are usually fine until everyone decides they need to download the streaming feed of some live TV incident all at once. Finals week is also a headache. Otherwise, ITS is a small task force of students that handles the needs of the entire student body considerably well given the limited resources.

If you still don’t trust the facilities, you can bypass all of the hassle by bringing your own computer and your own printer! Then hot coeds just might be asking you if they can download your hard drive!
