Computers: I don't really use them

3 College Sophomore

Computers: It is very beneficial to have your own computer and printer. The campus supplies computers and printers, but students often complain that there are not enough computers, or that the wi-fi is to slow. Also students have to pay ten cents to print, this may sound cheap but can be very inconvenient if the student really needs to print and does not have a nickel.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Decent equipment are located in the computer labs on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers in the lab at Oakwood University is a great quiet place, but can be very crowded. Sometimes the speed of wifi on any computer on campus can be slow at times. At the computer lab when you want to print its $.10 for each paper your decide to print. The computer lab can be a very great place to get homework done and quietly.

Most students on campus have a laptop, but for those that do not, there are many computer labs available in the religion, business, and technology departments and the library. The computer labs are hardly ever full, and the time you can spend on the computers is unlimited unless there is high demand. One will have troubles getting on a computer during finals week.

The computers in the labs are fast, and the Internet is always reliable. The Oakwood wireless network is mostly reliable except for the rare occasion when the network just randomly shuts off. The network can be reached any where on campus, which can provide the convenience of surfing the web while sitting on a park bench. The network does have a proxy that limits one from going to harmful or file-sharing sites. There is no real specialized tech support, but there are students that work in the labs that can usually help you when you encounter a problem.
