3 College Junior

Computers: The computers at my university are either working great or not working at all. The Wi-Fi at my school is very poor. Every since the school privatized the school's Wi-Fi , making faculty, staff and students log-on into their Wi-Fi, the signal has been very slow. The computer labs are crowded usually during the end of the semester, because of last minute papers and assignments. Some computers work all the time, others usually are always down. We have money on our print cards for each semester every year.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The availability of the computers are great. There are a great deal of computer labs on campus but my only con is some of the computers are older and slow.

3 College Junior

Computers: It could be better.There's only one technician on campus who handles the entire network and new equipment is rare.

4 College Freshman

Computers: We have several working computer labs around the campus, they are very helpful and all of the printers are functional.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: It's pretty good, there are so many options.

For the most part, each student has his or her own computer. If you don't have a computer, though, Savannah State's Powell Hall (tech building) will be glad to rent you a laptop (Dells and MacBooks). In addition, the University rents out iPods and iTouches. Not to mention, Powell Hall always helps repair your computer if necessary.

Computer labs are available in almost every building. In order to use some of the computers, you have to swipe your ID and sign in through the Pharos system, and in other labs, you just sign in through the desktop. In addition, these computer labs have business hours, but Savannah State University is diligently working to get a 24-hour computer lab available for student usage.
