Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When you arrive on campus, you might realize what a luxury it is to have a wireless network that works efficiently. Students often complain about how unreliable ResNet, the campus network, can be. They will usually do routine checks and updates to help with the connection, but sometimes the Internet can be down for a whole day. Apogee, the Internet provider, has a customer service number, and it, as well as IC's Information Technology Services, is there to assist students with any of these issues. 

Most students will bring a laptop to campus, and some of the majors in the Roy H. Park School of Communications actually require an Apple computer and certain software. Fortunately, if a student does not have a computer, there are free labs in several spots on campus that can be utilized for both Internet use and for printing. The printers only print black and white, but students can usually print as much as they want. During busy times in the semester, labs usually become very busy and sometimes there's a line to use them. The library also has many computers that are usually being used in between classes during the day. For anybody that is a procrastinator, there are several 24-hour labs for your convenience. It's also great that the buildings on campus have wireless connections.
