4 College Freshman

Computers: There are always computers available.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The college isn't great if you have super new appliances, such as a brand new laptop or smartphone, nor is it set up for apple computers, generally. Otherwise the computers are fine.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi isn't that dependable. We will have campus wide crashes that can last a while.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Plenty of labs, still can always use your own laptop

3 College Freshman

Computers: Speed of the internet varies greatly depending on where you are on campus. Certain buildings will have extremely limited access to wireless. Need for a personal computer is pretty high- much more convenient and reliable for getting work done.

There are a bunch of computer labs in each of the buildings. They can get pretty crowded at certain times during the day, and they frequently run out of paper, so it isn’t recommended that students try to print things out last minute. It’s highly suggested that students bring their own computers, laptop or desktop. Printers aren’t exactly necessary, but they do make things easier for procrastinators and just for everyday use. The college store is stocked with most kinds of ink cartridges and paper sizes, so having a personal printer isn’t too difficult to maintain.

ITS (Information and Technology Services) is generally very helpful. Sometimes the student helpers are a little inexperienced, but they mostly do a good job. It usually takes a bit of time, however, so it’s best to have important works backed up on a USB drive. Their service is free and usually efficient, so if a student does have computer problems, they are definitely the people to go to first. As for the network, it’s generally reliable. They do have a few problems each semester where the network shuts down for a few hours, or where it runs slow from too much activity, but it’s ordinarily reliable and fast.
