4 College Freshman

Computers: They are good for doing simple papers but closer to finals alot of the computer seem slow and not many are open to use.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Personal Computer a Must! A personal computer is a must but that's a plus because you're not stuck n a packed library or student center with a bunch of noise when you're trying to study.

3 College Junior

Computers: At my school we do have a computer lab available 24 hours a day, we just recently had it renevated to some what up to date computers. However there are maintanence services that happened at least twice a week that cause the servers to go down and there is no internet access at those times. We also just expanded where there is wifi throughout the campus, before there was only wireless connection in select buildings. However whenever majority of people on campus decided to all get on their computer things go rather slower than usual. The internet speed isn't a flash of lightening but it isn't compared to a snail either but it is relatively slow for a college campus.

Computers: Wireless Access – Wireless access should be available at any point in the campus.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: Lots of Places to Work – Every building has a computer lab and I have never had a problem finding a place to work. Between the computer labs and wifi access, there is always a chance to get work done, even during finals and midterms.

The majority of students going to school at U of O purchases and brings its own laptop or desktop. A student must register a computer with the University network before being able to use his or her computer on campus. The Student Support Services (SSS) computer lab is not very crowded, unless it’s midterms or finals week. Everyone is trying to get papers done, so of course people will need the computer. However, there are other labs on campus that people can use besides the SSS lab; the 24-hour lab is an option for students who need to finish that paper at 2 a.m.

When email is being abused, the University website can get viruses, and students have problems mapping their Z drive. The tech support at the college is very patient and helpful. Since 2010, the school has hooked up the entire campus with wireless Internet. Of course, during thunderstorms, tornado watches, or when the computer tech staff is working on the network, the wireless Internet can be hard to access. For the majority of the time, though, the Internet connection is fairly decent and runs pretty fast.
