Computing at ISU is amazing. Whether you have a computer for work, play, or both, ISU has the Internet connection you will need to make your computing dreams come true. Students seem to be extremely satisfied with the number of labs on campus, the quality of the computers available, and the accommodations made for those who wish to bring their own computers.
"Convenience" seems to be the word on computers. Most students bring their own computers and would find them difficult to live without. It is not necessary to bring your own, however. Sometimes the computer usage in dorm rooms can become ridiculous, with roommates chatting online while sitting in the same room, or chatting with the person next door to discuss what time to go to dinner. If you tend to procrastinate or really rely on your computer, bring one. Iowa State offers as much or as little computer interactivity as the students choose, offering high-tech capabilities, as well as the bare essentials. Whether you choose to bring a computer from home or rely on one of the hundreds of computers on campus, all students get by.
