2 College Freshman

Computers: There is constant disconnection and it can be very irritating. You also need to know where to get tech support because the library tech people are no more practiced than the average college student.

4 College Freshman

Computers: reliable, and that's what matters come crunch time

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Its always very important to have your own computer, because so,etimes in campus there's not enough for evgryone of us and because we have so much homework and have to be moving around. The school provides computer labs with mac computers some are dell they are very well taked cared of, the technology is not the BEST but it get us through the day with our homework. The wifi its GREAT! Its fast and when we have technical problems we call the support group and they will take care of the problem, they are not professionals because they all are students but some do know what they are doing. Also the printing costs are good, its not to expensive, p,is when you pay tuition the school puts $11 dollars into your printing account.

Computers at UTEP are definitely in short supply. Students are always lingering around the lab, like a shark lingers around a sinking ship. It is inconvenient to have to wait for available computers, and most students do not have the time. There are other computer labs set up around campus, yet their small size and small quantity of computers do not make up for the missing end of the stick.

There are some students that carry their laptops, which is the best alternative. Internet connection is not usually a problem. The network configuration set up at UTEP is installed by tech support. The tech support staff is very helpful, and is always busy installing programs in computers or helping fellow students with any troubles. Students may rent laptops from the tech support desk and even have antivirus protection programs installed free of charge.
