3 College Freshman

Computers: The computers they have are average computers. It completes the job needed. Nothing fancy.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Aside from the speed of the wifi, it's okay.

5 College Freshman

Computers: A personal computer is necessary to do work at home. The student site is great and you have full access to every piece of information you would ever need. Teachers are great at keeping students up to date through the student site.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: There is an average amount that appears to be up to date. Up to date hardware and software.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are computers in our library, school building, and one in the university center but other than that most students bring their own computer. The library is usually busy but you can usually find a computer pretty quick. Students are given money put on the student account so we can swipe our ids at the printer which is very convenient when your in a hurry. The only issue we have at times is the student portal. Sometimes it may run slow, crash, or made to update at different times of the night but other than that its not too bad. Maryville offers free wifi around the entire campus so its really helpful when you have your own computer and don't want to go in the library if you don't have to print. It is good to bring a computer but it is not required it just makes it easier for some students like those who commute.

Computer labs are located in the residence halls, library and the academic buildings. Students can even go to the library and rent laptops. The library just recently started this trend, and it has caught on with the students. Though many students only use the computer labs sporadically, some labs can fill up very quickly. The majority of the students bring their own laptop, though, because it's easier and less of a hassle when trying to finish your homework.

The University just implemented a new Print Management Policy effective in the fall of 2010 to reduce the amount of wasted paper that had been a problem for years previously. This policy will help manage the amount of paper that students are using. In years prior, printing was free for all of the students who attended Maryville, but now this policy places a limit on the amount of print each student can have. It will benefit the school in many aspects but will eliminate any issues with printing and wasted paper.
