4 College Junior

Computers: Most of the computers are new/up to date

4 College Freshman

Computers: I use my own laptop, but plenty of available computers, good tech services

4 College Sophomore

Computers: So sometimes the internet in the dorms are cruddy but that depends on where you are.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are some computer labs but they are spread out. Printing isn't to expensive but can add up over the semester if you have to print a lot for class. Network reliability is alright. Sometimes it goes out but normally after a hour or two it comes back. It just stinks if you have something due. You really need your own computer. Sharing doesn't really work and most of the schools are being used. Having your own helps with getting things done on time and right.

4 College Junior

Computers: Desktops and laptops could be found anywhere on campus, in the library, classroom,or even in the dorms. One would never have to worry about doing school works or buying a computer because the school event let students rent and borrow laptops to use. The internet speed is great. The technologies here at UGA is very great.

At UGA, you’ve got dorm labs, the computers in the libraries, and the computers in the Miler Learning Center (MLC) at your disposal. The computers in the MLC are new and extremely fast, while the Internet connection at the Main Library is slow. It is a bit of a hassle to print, because to do so, it must be charged to your UGA ID, and in order to do that, you must have available funds on your card. To put money on your card, you have to go to a “money-card conversion machine.” There are a few in the main library, one in the Tate Student Center, and a few in the MLC.

The computers in the dorms have Ethernet service, but be careful downloading music as UGA monitors illegal downloads. The Ethernet in the dorms also hooks up to XBOX Live and The Playstation Network for online video game play. All of the computers in the MLC have been recently upgraded, but for advance computing and graphic design, the MLC has brand new iMacs that dual boot both OS-X and Windows operating systems. The digital media lab and the digital media wing have flatbed scanners and even a free recording studio that can be rented out.
