Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

BJU is packed with technology: most of the student body owns personal laptops, campus buildings have computers for student use, wireless Internet is accessible across campus, and the University also has its own dependable technology service center. The campus computer labs are a great resource for students, with high-speed wireless Internet and the latest software needed for class projects. Many students use the labs on a daily basis, but most prefer to use their personal laptops for privacy and convenience.

BJU strives to meet the growing and changing technology needs of the student body. Timely upgrades and necessary improvements are always underway. For example, work is currently being done to improve the Internet speed within the residence halls in an effort to reduce network crashes. The technology center's location near the residence halls makes it a very convenient and helpful resource for students seeking solutions to computer problems. In addition to meeting technological needs, as a part of the student work program, the technology center also hires and trains students in need of employment.
