Students have access to over 100 computers throughout our buildings. Many also find it convenient to own a laptop for use at home or while in the building. If you already own a computer you wish to use for school work, ideally it should be no older than four years old with sufficient processing power and memory to run current versions of Microsoft Office and Symantec Antivirus, and possibly more demanding applications such as statistical software and Second Life.
Use of personal laptops within the school is encouraged. The school supports a high-speed wireless network with coverage throughout all of the school buildings. The SON Help Desk, part of an array of IT services offered by the ITS department, offers on-site technical assistance for students, including support of student laptops. Computer Recommendations
