Students at USC rely heavily on computers both in and out of the classroom. Computers are required for writing papers, doing research on the Internet, creating projects, and checking homework assignments and grades online through Blackboard. Students also use USC’s Visual Information Processing (VIP) system online to register for classes, pay their tuition and sign up for housing. The computer labs on campus provide ample resources for students; however, many students find it more convenient to have their own computer to enjoy its 24-hour availability, download music, watch online videos and television shows, and avoid a trek across campus. If you don’t bring your own computer, the Thomas Cooper Library has a limited number of laptops it rents out to students for a day.
The Internet connection is much better than what many students are used to. There is a high-speed Ethernet connection in every dorm and apartment room, and students also have the option of setting up a wireless connection with Computer Services. The network occasionally experiences problems, but these are generally few and far between. Computer Services also provides in-room and over-the-phone assistance with your computer in case you have problems or questions. Whether you decide to bring your own computer or use the University facilities, you will find the technological resources easily accessible and of high quality.
