Computer Recommendations

The University has extensively purchased computers through Dell Computer Corporation-Higher Education Division. Students who wish to purchase through Dell can go to the University's page on the Dell website for special discounts. The University recommends purchasing a laptop with wireless capability.

Note: Anything below Vista/XP as well as Linux are NOT supported. Wireless printers are not supported due to security issues so a physical printer cable will be required for all personal printers brought on campus.  Macs are compatible with the network but with limited support.
