3 College Sophomore

Computers: The wireless network is also down and is unavailable in some areas of the campus. Printing on campus requires a personal WEPA account and does cost additional money. A personal computer/laptop is not needed since everyone is provided one. However, a personal printer would be the most cost efficient.

4 College Freshman

Computers: All students are supplied with the latest model of mac book as part of the IMlearning program. tech support is great with quick repairs

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There is enough computers with high speed internet connection in the labs as well as personal computers. We are able to connect to websites without trouble and this make the school network more reliable. Printing on campus is not a problem for us because the school has enough printer for students and staff. Printing is also reliable because the technical men constantly check computers, scanners,and printer, to make sure that everything is working properly. This to ensure that, there is minimal or no inconvenience for students, staff and other workers in the school.

When a student applies to SU and is accepted, he or she is rewarded with many benefits. Every freshman student that enters the school is given a Mac computer with the additional choice of an iPad, iPod touch, and/or an iPhone. There is one computer lab on campus, and it's located in the campus library. The labs aren't ever really crowded, but students must be careful with the time they choose to go to the labs because a lot of teachers plan classes in the computer labs.

SU has a tech support desk in case something unexplainable happens to a student's computer. The tech support team is very helpful and can always figure out what happens to a laptop and will have it fixed immediately. The Internet access is generally always pretty fast. There are times when the connection fails in the dorms, but it is usually always recovered within a few minutes.
