The best graduation gift for a high school senior going to Willamette is a laptop computer. It is nearly impossible to find a student who does not own a personal laptop. In fact, it is becoming more common for students to own a laptop as well as a desktop for their dorm room. The average incoming freshman arrives to campus equipped with a laptop and printer. Each dorm has Internet hookup, and most areas on campus are wireless. Do not get the wrong impression: You do not need your own personal computer. There are plenty of computer labs and available stations at the library where you will most definitely get a computer when you want one, but it is much more convenient for last-minute papers or late-night emails if you have your own.
Computers can be found in the library, Smullin lab, Collins lab, and Kenako Commons. The library and Smullin are popular places to go for all of your computing needs. The computers are fairly new, and there are more than enough for students in need. Also in the Smullin lab is Willamette Integrated Technology Services (WITS), where you can take your laptop to the computer help desk. Keep in mind that the help desk will only help you with actual Willamette computer problems. If you are having trouble logging onto a network or you need an update for your Willamette anti-virus software, they are more than helpful. WITS recently started a program where they provide free technical support in the library on weeknights. Living in the computer age, incoming students soon learn how important computers are to college life. Email is the most essential form of communication—professors send assignments and papers electronically. Also, the library’s researching network is one of the most helpful resources students will use during their time at Willamette.
