4 College Freshman

Computers: Sometimes the internet crashes, but when it's up and running, it's great.

4 College Junior

Computers: The internet usually works really well. Printing is not expensive. The tech people are always willing to help. However, there are many teachers on campus who do not allow the use of computers in the classroom.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I thought that the computer labs were speedy and reliable, but the only problem was the testing center, which became crowded during testing time and I wish that they weren't so crowded because it was hard to bet your test done.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computers on campus are very up to date and they even had Microsoft employees going around talking about the new Windows 8 and 8.1, so this is something that is growing very well on campus. The wireless connection is pretty good everywhere you go on campus.

The school has many computer labs throughout the campus. Most of these computers have the latest software installed for students to get a cutting edge education. Each building has a lab specific to the degrees taught within that building. The visual media lab will have Macintosh computers with Adobe Photoshop and other media tools installed, whereas the accounting lab will have PC computers, Microsoft Office Pro, and TaxWorks installed for accounting classes.

Most areas within the campus have Wi-Fi hotspots where students may log onto high speed Internet with their laptops. The school recently initiated a program for every student to obtain a laptop for their education. This program requires students to buy a laptop, but will assist students in need with discounts and financial aid. The school has invested many resources into technology for students so that they graduate equipped with knowledge of the latest trends for their careers. Almost all classrooms come standard with a projector and a computer for the teacher to present a wide range of material. Students are encouraged to work together on projects and presentations, where they come together with new ideas and solutions.
