3 College Freshman

Computers: The internet connection isn't extremely reliable, and there are limited on campus computers, but there is a lot of technologic support and technology on sale in the campus bookstore.

4 College Freshman

Computers: I've been in the library to use their computers rather than mine since they have better software/programs. However I'd rather print on my own since you'll have to pay $1 per page to print

4 College Freshman

Computers: Access to computers is great, but the wifi network here is really spotty. It will be great one minute and crappy the next. It just depends on where you are and when.

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.
