4 College Sophomore

Technology: Computers are available all over campus. In every level of the library there are computers and printers. Printing has become more fancy, we now only have to swipe our cards to print. Our network speed is okay, considering the fact that we're kind of in the middle of nowhere. I wouldn't say it's necessary to bring your own computer but it would help because when it's finals time the library gets jammed pack.

Technology: So long as the wireless is working everything is great. Unfortunately the wifi likes to give out at times of great stress when more students need it. Ethernet cords become life savers.

4 College Junior

Technology: The computers at Ferrum College are great to use. There are computer labs all over campus that are provided for you. The main computer labs that are crowded would be in the library. There are certain times where you can go and use the computer. It would be open all day all night on weekdays. With being far from the computer labs, most people would have their own laptops that they can do work on. With me doing alot of work, I would recommend using my laptop. For the most part Ferrum has great computers to use.

3 College Junior

Technology: The computer labs are very up to date. Printing on campus isn't difficult even though there is a limit on how much you can print. The wireless access is spotty and slow though.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: The computers on campus are very nice, but there are not enough for students during exam weeks. Other than exam weeks, the computer labs and library computer banks are very plentiful and very useful.
