2 College Freshman

Computers: Wifi can be unreliable and slow. Took them a few months to figure it all out. Tech services are pretty bad, seems like they aren't on top of it

1 College Freshman

Computers: They are so slow that you could start trying to log in and then leave for 10 minutes and it will still be loading when you get back.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The wi-fi can be a bit spotty but tech services is fantastic.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The labs are okay, but are always full and the wifi around campus is really slow and doesn't always connect correctly.

2 College Sophomore

Computers: Really shitty internet and tech services. Probably one of the worst things about this school.

Generally, anywhere you go on campus, wireless is available for laptops. Almost every student has one, but if they don’t, the library has plenty available in the first floor labs and the Apple media center in the basement. There have been rumors that the University will eventually start charging for printing, but at the moment, it is still free to print in the library. Many classes require packets, so this availability is helpful. The library closes at 2 a.m. on school nights but stays open 24 hours during mid-terms and finals. Other buildings like Wyatt, Thompson, and McIntyre have computer labs where printing is available as well. 

When students register for classes, those classes automatically show up on their personal Moodle site, where they can log in to look at assignments, download readings, post assignments, and add to discussion. If there are any questions about the Internet or computers, students can contact ResNet (Residential Networking Services) for help.
