3 College Freshman

Computers: I have never noticed a time when there someone was not able to use a computer. The accessibility and the amount of computers on campus is good. Sometimes some labs can be crowded when many people have assignments due. The network reliability and speed is decent, not ideal, but not frustrating either. I would suggest having personal computers because many assignments are done online and have time constraints. It can be difficult to take an online quiz in a lab with many others.

Computers: There are a good number of possible computer labs to use on campus. Though some hold classes at times, there is always another lab to use if needed. I do prefer to use my own laptop to do my work for personal reasons. However, there is great availability at Misericordia University for the use of computers and printers. While students have a few hundred sheets of printing paper each semester, it is extremely inexpensive and convenient to acquire more sheets if necessary.

Computers: if you absolutely can't bring a computer don't worry about it you can rent one from the library for a week at a time. There are also on campus labs but they aren't open 24/7

4 College Student

Computers: The computers at Misericordia University are decent. As a freshman, the staff introduces you to the system so you learn how to use it and feel comfortable with it. Sometimes the printers won't work and they do restrict your printing. Overall it is not entirely bad and I can always find a computer or help when I need it. Wireless access is shaky sometimes but it has consistently gotten better over the last semester.

Computers: the classrooms are up to date with smart boards and projectors and the wireless network works but is slow.

Whenever students have computer problems, the Student Helpdesk is the first place they should go, as the Helpdesk can fix just about anything. If something can't be fixed, the computer can be sent out for repair. The Student Helpdesk is run by current students, and they are always helpful and willing to answer any computer-related questions. Generally, computers on campus are always reliable, and with multiple labs in almost every building, there is always a vacant computer available. While the computers are always working, the printers are usually an issue. They run out of paper or ink, and no one refills them, so students can sometimes be stuck running around campus looking for printers that work. All computers on campus have the necessary programs to get work done, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. There is also a design lab that is fully equipped with Mac computers, mostly used by communications majors.

The Misericordia e-mail system (e-MU) is always working properly and offers a great spam blocker. There have been very few times when the network has been shut down. There was an incident where someone hacked into the software and sent out e-mails asking for student passwords, which was a huge issue because students sent their passwords, and viruses got into the e-MU system. Since then, IT decided to update the e-mail system, and there haven't been any problems.

Facts & Statistics

Wireless Access
Yes
Students can get access to wireless in any building on campus. Accessing the network is easy, but in order to even get access, students have to go to the IT Student Helpdesk to ask for the password and network name for each building.
Charged to Print?
Yes
Students are allowed to print up to 500 pages for free each semester. Once that runs out, printing costs 5 cents per page.
Special Software & Hardware Discounts
Misericordia has a computer partnership with Dell, so Misericordia students get 10 percent off of all Dell products. Having a Dell computer is definitely a plus at MU because if anything at all happens to a student's computer, the IT department can send it directly to Dell and have it fixed within a week. Misericordia also has teamed with JourneyED to provide software at educational prices.
Did You Know?
Students can rent laptops to use (free of charge!) while doing work in the Bevevino Library. The laptops are in good condition and are fully equipped with necessary Microsoft programs.
