3 College Freshman

Computers: The wireless network is spotty a lot

4 College Freshman

Computers: We use the Papercut.com system for printing, and it's great for non-music majors because we get enough money on our accounts. However there aren't printers in most of the dorm buildings, so that's kind of a hassle. There are computers available everywhere, all the time for the most part, but having a laptop is very helpful and easier.

Computers: The computer labs in Meridith are very high quality. All the computers in the labs are Mac's which makes transferring data between computers is easy. Printing on campus is great, there are several locations for printers, they are starting to get printers in the dorms as well. Having a personal computer is very helpful but not required, there are several labs that are available to students, however having your own computer is more convenient.

Computers: Wifi comes with the school, so long as you are a registered student. Computer labs are perfect, especially in the journalism or graphic design building, tech support is in the lower part of the graphic design building, and very helpful. Printing is easy, but a bit costly, especially for graphic design and journalism majors. I would highly recommend you bring your own laptop, if not a desktop, but it really depends on your major.

4 College Student

Computers: There are always computers available to use on campus and the tech support is helpful. The only complaint I have is that the network speed is a little slow.
