2 College Junior

Computers: The wifi is pretty bad and IT reps aren't very friendly.

3 College Junior

Computers: The internet connection is poor and choppy in the dorms but in the labs it's fine. Frustrating at times in the dorms tho.

1 College Junior

Computers: The internet access at Lyco is absolutely terrible. For a time, urban dictionary had a definition for "s***ernet" that included "the internet at Lycoming College." It is not very reliable and you will often find yourself in remediation, where you will have to update your computer completely and keep checking for updates until it will approve you to be back on the network. This process can take several hours. Finding a computer in the library is almost impossible. The other labs are typically your best bet, but they are often used for other classes that reserve them and that can get in the way of things. Heim, the science building, has a computer lab that is rarely used, which is the best option. You definitely need a laptop or a personal computer. However, Lycoming added a new wireless printing option where you download the printer's software on to your laptop, sign in with your username and then after you hit print, scan your id at any school printer near you and then your document will print. However, the software is unreliable also. So you often have no choice but to get on one of the schools computer's to try and print something. The amount of free print counts I'd say are okay. Sometimes it's not enough if you have a class that demands printing often and other times it's great if you have professor's who do not mind you electronically submitting work.

Computers: Though we have multiple computer labs on campus the internet is awful. The wireless in the dorm rooms either work or doesnt work and an ethernet cable barely helps. The computers in the labs are usually taken and move slow. The printing money however is a very good amount and you will not run out by the end of semester.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: I think there a good amount of computers available in the main centers of our campus. Printing on campus is not difficult and realativly easy. The network is usually pretty fast. I do recommend a personal computer because its just easier and since the whole campus is wireless you can take it anywhere especially if you going home for the weekend.
