In the past, the campus computer situation yearned for a massive overhaul. Now, the computer situation around campus presents students with countless new-age computing options. From the Educational Technology Center to the wireless networking that exists throughout a majority of the campus, Reed's revamped computer situation and computer labs allow students numerous opportunities to further their education around campus without having to own a computer. Although students do believe the computer labs to be an excellent resource, most agree that owning a computer makes the Reed experience much more convenient. Additionally, if you own a computer, Reed's Computer User Services (CUS) willingly assists anyone with any queries at virtually any hour, making troubleshooting problems a breeze.
Reed outfits nearly every classroom with a new computer, as well, allowing professors to take advantage of numerous multimedia resources. Beyond all the services that CIS provides, they also train and designate a number of Terminal Watchers (T-Watchers) whose main job is to assist other students with technological troubleshooting. In short, computers at Reed used to be lacking, but now, they blaze a trail in accessibility, assistance, and overall ease of use.
