3 College Sophomore

Computers: AU WIFI is very spotty

3 College Junior

Computers: There are a lot of computers on campus, but many of them are only accessible if you belong to that specific college or major. If you are in Nursing School, for example, unless you logged onto one of the computers in the library, you would have to get an engineering or mathematics major to let you into one of their labs to use a public computer. Many of the computers are outdated, however.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Computers are fine but AUWifi is not reliable AT ALL.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I suppose it is about average for a school this size.

4 College Senior

Computers: The computers are good and widely available.

While most students claim that the computer labs on campus are generally easy to access and usually not terribly busy, they almost all recommend bringing your own PC if you have one. Since it's very important to keep up-to-date with your classes, having your own computer makes life that much easier.

Students enjoy the luxury of the high-speed Internet that the University offers. If you're living off campus, then using cable or DSL is also a popular choice, especially for students who like to use their computers for reasons other than academics, such as downloading music. For those students who aren't able to bring a computer to school, the labs on campus are convenient. Just make sure to have that paper printed early during exam week.

Did You Know?
To use a computer on campus, you have to sign in and use a password. It's a good idea to synchronize your password with all the accounts you use on campus (TigerMail, OASIS, WebCT) so that you don't have several different passwords to memorize. Also, don't forget to sign out when you're done using the computer! If you don't sign out, then someone could abuse your account or hack other computers, and you will be held accountable.
