Computers: Speed isn't as fast as I'm used to but I'm sure its just because of all the people using it at once

Computers: I am not picky when it comes to the wifi. There is no rush in life so if it's running slow, oh well. It's going to happen at one point or another.

1 Recent Alumnus

Computers: There are a ton of computers for students to use on campus. The internet though, is something to be desired.

3 College Freshman

Computers: While there are available computers, the ireless connection is often terrible and I cannot sustain a strong wireless signal enough to access the internet from my laptop

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are plenty of places you can go to use the computers, and with our seven story library you can almost always find a computer, unless it's finals week, but even then you can go any where on campus and still have access to the network. The local coffee shops and business are a great asset to the needs of students in regards to wireless access and just a place to sit and study.

It’s definitely easy to find a computer to use on campus, even during midterm and finals weeks. The computers in the residence halls are great, and it’s really nice not to have to worry about getting a computer while making the transition to college. Even when you’re out of the dorms, the labs can be a lifesaver if you run out of printer ink, or have to run in and check your e-mail. Even better, wireless Internet is accessible throughout campus, which is really convenient for those students with laptops. The Tech Depot is also really helpful to students. Whether you live in the dorms or not, the Tech Depot is easy to get a
hold of and can help with any computer-related problem. They can even fix your computer for a reasonable price, which definitely beats shelling out a lot of money to have it repaired someplace else.

One thing that can be a problem is just how easy it is to access a computer all of the time. Many students become practically addicted to the Internet, whether it’s playing online games or just checking Facebook. But in all, computers on campus are more of a blessing than a hindrance and the University does what it can to help even the most technologically backward students on campus use computers and the wireless network with ease.
