Overall, students are extremely satisfied not only with the computers they have, but also with the availability of computers. Students rely heavily on computers to perform research. They also rely on e-mail as a way to communicate with other cadets. All cadets are issued a computer when they arrive at West Point. The Academy also updates their software as technology progresses. They system ensures that all students are given an equal starting opportunity. Cadets are free to purchase add-ons to their computers at their own discretion. Some find that they can do without additional amenities, but the majority of cadets advise incoming plebes to bring additional equipment for their computers, such as a printer, fax, or copier. Although computer access is never a problem, the majority of cadet companies have only one or two printers. A lot of cadets and instructors are excited about incorporating wireless technology into the classroom.
Some students complain about scrutiny of e-mails by the Academy. Whether or not this is actually done, improper behavior relating to cheating, or otherwise compromising any assignment, is not tolerated at West Point. Students should certainly be careful what they do with their computers. The only other complaint voiced by current cadets is that the network is not always reliable, but this problem is certainly not unique to West Point. Networks crash at every university and college across the country, but how many schools issue you a free computer?
