Florida State University prides itself on being one of the most wired universities in the United States. The administration realizes that in order to be competitive, students must have access to the latest technologies. FSU is constantly updating their computer systems and network servers, not only for security purposes, but also to provide its student body with the most up-to-date computing available and the quickest network speed possible. This includes Ethernet connections and wired classrooms, along with a wireless network available at various locations. Many instructors now use FSU's Blackboard system to post class notes, assignments, and grades that are easy for students to access from any computer location, regardless if you own one or not.
Some students complain about crowded computer labs, but these are usually the ones who wait until the last minute to complete their assignments. Also, the school has adopted a stricter policy on file trading due to the strain it puts on the network servers and to avoid the possibility of copyright infringement lawsuits. This new enforcement helps to speed up the network. In addition to these new policies, the systems have been upgraded, continuing to make the network quicker. Having your own computer is not a necessity at FSU, but it is nice to have the convenience of checking your e-mail or communicating via Instant Messenger in the comfort of your own room.
