CCS makes it a point to provide students with the top-of-the-line computers and software. The AT and IT departments are only made up of a few dedicated people that work hard to make sure everything runs smoothly for the students. There are times when the wireless Internet goes out, but the Ethernet connections will always work, so if you're going to be on campus with a laptop, it would be smart to carry an Ethernet cable with you. They only cost a couple dollars, and it saves you from the frustration of not being able to work on your laptop.

In Fall 2010, CCS implemented a new policy that requires students to pay for printing. As much turmoil as there has been, it's been quite beneficial to the conservation of energy, ink, and paper. There is no longer mass waste of paper, and it's not a terrible thing. Each student is given an allowance of $20 a semester to help pay for their prints. This equals 400 pages of regular black and white prints. Students can also print color up to 11"x17" for up to 75 cents a page, but it's reasonable, especially when you're guaranteed so many free prints to begin with.
