5 College Junior

Computers: i've never had any issues with the computers or labs reliability and speed. every student is required to have their own computer though so i rarely have to use the computer labs.

5 College Freshman

Computers: Everyone get's $25 worth per semester of free prints. The prints are $0.05 per print with black ink and $0.25 otherwise. Every student has "free" internet access and it's pretty fast and reliable. The availability of technology in the classroom depends on which buildings the classroom is located. There are tons of computers all around campus, but it's smart to have your own laptop. We receive free Microsoft software. Some labs have Adobe Creative Suite software, but because of my major, I had to buy it. I recently found out that students will get access to Adobe Creative Suite as long as they are on campus next year for free.

Computers: I do not use the school computers, as I have a laptop. They are available, which is nice, however, the wireless internet is terrible and rarely works.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The campus is wireless but often unreliable. Internet in certain locations drops for no apparent reason. There are few accessible computer labs so having a laptop is necessary. The school provides some printing dollars but not enough to make it through the year so students will have to either provide their own printer or pay $0.05 per page.

Computers: Must have your own computer but it has to meet certain criteria...they recommend only 2 brands. labs are crowded. slow network during the day.

Clemson has 15 computer labs around campus supporting about 1,000 computers. Students agree that the Clemson channel is a great help because it tells you which labs are full and which are not. For the most part, the network is well maintained, but you can always expect something to go
wrong before a big assignment is due.

Clemson's computer network is sufficient to meet the needs
of all of its students. Although computer labs in popular locations can fill quickly during the day, there is always a computer available somewhere-you just have to know where to look. The University has an agreement with Dell, so the computers are state-of-the-art and are constantly being updated. You should have no problem surviving at Clemson without your own computer-as long as you're not addicted to Instant Messenger.
