Computers: A lot of our homework is online, so it is important to have some sort of reliable means of internet access. There are many places to access computers. Printing is available, but must be paid for using a campus card. Also, printing charges have increased. The library also has scanning and copying capabilities. Network reliability is sketchy at times...you can lose service in places where service should be best.

5 College Freshman

Computers: There are computers everywhere, but most of your homework will be online. Probably don't want to make the trek to Club Sterne every time you need to do OWL or Web Assign, plus the library closes super early on Friday and Saturday.

Computers: The software used isn't always new and up to date. Printing can become costly and difficult since a lot of people are always trying to print. The wireless network cuts out often and some classrooms have poor wireless access.
