2 College Sophomore

Computers: We used to get $5 of free money to print, but they put in a whole new way to print that is expensive and you don't get any free money to use so I don't print things on campus anymore. Wifi is sometimes a joke because it doesn't always work, and it's sooooooo slow if it is working. If I didn't have my own computer I don't know what I would do because all of my classes require me to get online for assignments and make me buy access codes to do assignments instead of just using black board which is free.

4 College Junior

Computers: There are computer labs in each building and also huge areas of computers in the library. I do not like that it cost 25 cents a page to print something, but I understand why they do it.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The school does a excellent job in providing just about of technology in any building on campus ground. Wireless internet tends to have a great connection with any mobile device that students may need to have access to.

5 College Sophomore

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Having your own computer in college is a must if you are looking for convenience. The library is equipped with lots of great computers, but going to the library, waiting for a computer, and getting distracted by the hundreds of semi-familiar faces wastes precious time that you will have to make up for later. It is starting to become a bigger trend to see people typing their notes on their laptops in class, but most people still use the library for quick email checks and especially for printing.

We are the digital generation, and professors are catching on to that. A full-time student will be taking courses that, more often than not, rely heavily on the Internet or other computer-based conveniences. You can get through many a class without buying the overpriced textbook, but you cannot make it through college without a computer.
