2 College Sophomore

Computers: Not many computers in the library, and the computer labs are tucked away in the back corners of the school where no one knows where they are and can go their entire career here, not having ever stepped in them. The wifi shuts down at some point or another almost every other day if not every day. The speed is alright, but the reliability is not. The printing prices are okay, you will get more money to print then you will ever use, but if you need to print something before class, best go at least twenty minutes before classes start because there are only four printers in the library and the line builds up quick right before classes all the time.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are plenty of computer labs scattered throughout the campus which are always availabe. The wifi is okay sometimes the connection is lost.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Computers are available pretty much anywhere on campus. The only downside is that printing costs six cents a page. It may not seem like much but printing should be free since we already pay so much for tuition.

3 College Senior

Computers: There are lots of computers on campus, in the library, electronic classrooms, and computer labs. But, they're not always the best. Some are upgraded to the latest technology, others aren't. You get enough money for printing so that's not a problem. And if you decide to use your own computer, just be wary that sometimes the wireless network can be unpredictable.

4 College Junior

Computers: No complaints here. Everyone seem studious and remain focused on their work. Ab it noisy at times in the labs which s why I prefer the library if I have to study.

The computer labs are mostly crowded in between classes. The computers are up to date and easy to use, but waiting for your papers is a hassle. Every student can print up to 210 pages for free every semester. There are only a few printers for students, so it takes 15 minutes to receive your papers sometimes. One should probably invest in a printer if one can. The assistants in the lab are always willing to lend a hand if one needs assistance. Students should definitely have their own computers; then, they can bring their laptops to classes and takes notes.

If a person has persistent trouble with his or her computer, there's a "Do It Desk" where technicians can help out a student with their technical issues. It's also the place where people can get an Ethernet cord for free. Unlike John Street and Fulton, The Towers doesn't have Wi-Fi, so an Ethernet cord comes in handy, even though sometimes it's still hard to manage a connection in the dorms.
