Wooster has heard the cries from its unsatisfied students over the past few years and has worked to improve the computer situation at the College. Although it took out many of the computers in the 24-hour computer lab (the Wired Scot), the school replaced the old computers with new (although fewer) models. There are several computer labs, both Mac and PC, throughout campus in academic buildings and in the libraries. However, almost all students have their own laptops or desktops. Although there are plenty of computers to use on campus if students need them, they are not always available where you need them when you need them. Especially for students that like to do late-night work, having a personal computer is the best option.
Printing has gotten easier at Wooster in the past couple of years, as well. The College has made its printing software available to students, so that they are able to print from their own computers instead of constantly transferring files to Wooster’s computers. Unfortunately, printers are only available in a couple of locations on campus and right before class is a high traffic time. So, the printers often run out of paper or get jammed. Although having your own printer is not necessary, it is good to have a “Plan B” so you don’t have to go to class empty-handed.
