3 College Sophomore

Computers: The need to have better computers and computer space for the students. They also need to have it to where all of the computers do not run on the same modem so that they can load faster.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Most students bring their own computers to Oglethorpe, but for the few who don't, usable computers (which run on Windows XP) are easily found. So is wireless access, which is available nearly everywhere on campus; unfortunately, the speed can be somewhat lacking. 

Internet can unexpectedly drop at the most inopportune of times, and it will stay down for several minutes. Further problems are created when students attempt to play online games, only to have them randomly disconnect in the middle of quests. This usually happens during bad weather or when too many students are using their computers.
