The computer labs at TSU are really nice-when you are able to use them. An incoming student should definitely bring their own computer to avoid hassle and losing saved information. The computer network is wireless and easy to access, except during times of registration or exams. Other than that, the computers are always working and they are always kept up-to-date. The e-mail program, myTSU, is also a great way to access the entire campus. You can e-mail your teachers and classmates and receive assignments from the site. It's very easy to use and has a lot of information that is crucial to life on campus. It does not always work, however, and some sites are only available during specific hours, so this inconvenience can sometimes be a pain.
Students definitely pile into the labs during major paper assignments, although some professors will reserve a lab for their class because they know how difficult it can be to get a computer. These professors are highly praised because you can get a lot of your work done during class time and you do not have to worry about waiting or fighting over a computer. A major issue is the printing process. Although it is free, sometimes the printer is so packed with printing jobs that is at least 30 minutes before you can get what you need printed. The dorms all have computer labs, so students who live on campus are at an advantage. The library is perhaps the best place to use a computer because it is one of the only places where there is someone on staff at all times. The other computer labs very seldom have someone on staff, and it is pretty much every student for his or herself.
