5 College Freshman

Computers: It's great. They even have a way for you to rent a computer if you aren't able to buy one. The internet can get a little ify at times, but it usually works great!

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wireless in the student center and library gets overloaded very quickly. Wireless in the other buildings is usually good enough and reliable

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.
