2 College Freshman

Computers: Jackson states Wi-Fi in dorms availability is very bad you never have signal even on the W

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Computer labs are all around JSU. Jackson State thrives on technology now. Started in 2012 JSU launched the iPad Initiative, where every incoming undergraduate freshman will receive a brand new iPad. These iPads are commonly used in classrooms for assignments. Printing on campus can sometimes be a bit of a struggle when the printers get jammed but usually it's not a big problem. Network and reliability, now these are where the problems come in. JSU wi-fi signals are pretty bad. You can almost never get a perfect signal unless you're in the library. It's a constant struggle trying to get a good signal in the dorms. I highly suggest the purchasing of an Internet router for your room.

Computers: Jacksonville State University has computer labs in most every building on campus. Printing on campus costs 10 cents per page. Which is not so bad, unless you need to print out lots of pages. Network reliability varies from day to day. It is usually fast, but there have been times when the network has been down or is being worked on. Wireless access is great, as long as you are on campus. Personal computers in the classroom are needed for certain classes but not others.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Technology is abundant at JSU, and students are very fortunate to have this equipment at their disposal. Many students choose to purchase personal computers and laptops when entering college. The University provides labs during school hours in each academic building, but the dormitories do not have labs for students to use. Also, due to not having a 24-hour lab, it is very important for students to own their own laptops, just in case they decide to procrastinate on assignments (not recommended). If you are a productive student, a personal laptop is not a necessity.

There is a printing fee in the Sampson Library. Prints are 5 cents copies are 10 cents. Students are granted a certain amount for printing, and after all monies have been used, they then pay out-of-pocket. Students tend to print things not related to academics, which causes the school to supply more paper, resulting in a charge for copying and printing. Wireless connections are offered around the campus in each building, whether academic, café, or dorm. On-campus students may also purchase a router for their dorm rooms.
