5 College Sophomore

Computers: I love that there is always available when I go to any computer lab and the wireless service on my laptop or Ipad is always excellent.

2 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi mostly only works best in the dorms and in classrooms by the exterior of the building and it has the possibility of disapearing for a bit at certain times when needed most. Need to improve on that. The printing on campus is OK, they give you about 800 pages free a semester which is a decent amount.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The Wi-Fi at ASU is pretty bad, and depending on which building you're in, you might not even have service, but there are plenty of computer labs.

2 College Junior

Computers: Bring your own laptop and wireless router

4 College Junior

Computers: Normally, wifi is great and unless it is midterms for finals week, laptops are easy to come by; however if you live in the dorms, wifi is horrendous and you have to go to another campus building.

Angelo State University has good computer labs that are generally up-to-date and available to students. There does happen to be a slight shortage of availability due to space and lack of non-teaching labs. Most students have their own computers, so this isn't too much of a problem, but for those who do not, it could be an issue. The MCS (Math and Computer Science) building at ASU has a lab available for the student body and has 14 computers at its "print station" for students who merely need a lab to print off a paper or lab manual. The library commons has a lab and printer but also checks out laptops to students. The public lab computers also have up to date software programs such as Adobe creative design packages.

Each student at ASU is allotted 800 free print credits each semester, with additional credits costing $10 per 100 credits. The school server keeps track of how many sheets of paper a student prints. The 800-credit limit has been subject of controversy among students, with some barely needing any credits and some majors having to print out more material for class than the 800 allows for. So far no word on whether the limit will be raised. Along with print credits, students are also allotted a small amount of server space to save projects in that can be accessed from any ASU computer connected to the server.
