4 College Freshman

Computers: Diversity Between PC and Mac – The computers at Millsaps College give very little problems. There are multiple computer labs that account for the entire student body. I have very rarely seen crowding in the labs. The network reliability and speed is great when inside the academic buildings. It may seem slightly slower on your personal computer, but this is just reflected by the distance you live from the center of campus. A benefit of the computers here are the diversity between PC and Mac, Millsaps has computer labs for both types of computers. I have never fell into a huge problem with the computer technology at Millsaps and I don't see it as problem the school needs to address.

Computers: The computers are pretty fast. There are many computers on campus so you can go anywhere to study. However, sometimes the wireless access is pretty slow and the printers do not work.

Computers: The computers and technology at Millsaps College is one of the most outstanding technology that is out there. The computers and network connection is top of the line fast and easy to get to. The security is well manufactered and all the kinks are taking care of. If anyone had to use our computers on campus then it would be easy for them to use. Thye have an abundance of computers and computer space so there isn't a lot of crowding going around. You have the room to do work and concentrate.

Computers: Library Saves Me! The libraries/computer labs at Millsaps college are vastly resourceful and always there when needed.

Niche User

Computers: The whole campus is a few beats behind, technologically, but it's not like the Stone Age. If I was spoiled by that stuff, I couldn't go without those things.

The single issue that has no one up in arms is the computer situation. Whether you have a personal computer or not, you will be well-equipped to deal with campus life. New technologies are being integrated constantly. The digital printers that they have are better than the ones students possess. And all of this is for use by every member of the student body and faculty. Taking advantage of this, professors post schedules and homework on the Web and consider e-mail a valid form of communication. That means checking your e-mail is a must, because papers may be moved down or altered at a day’s notice. Also, organizations, like Habitat for Humanity, or varsity sports will keep students updated through e-mails. A great majority of students will keep their Outlook program running constantly, for socializing as well as assigments.

ResNet does, however, seem overworked. Often, students complain that they cannot handle the problems or that they are not interested in solving them. Campus spam is one problem, since some administrators will forward five to ten messages a day. As a result, students’ mailboxes tend to frequently overflow. One student, feeling that it had gone too far, used it has a major part of his platform in his bid for Student Body Association president.
