Where can I print out something for my classes?
You may print in the Angeli Hall computer labs in rooms 208, 209, and 210, if there are no classes. You can also print in the Library located in the basement of Seeley Hall.
I have Microsoft Works / Microsoft Office 2010 on my home computer/laptop. Will my files work in the labs?
Only in the right file format. When saving your document, make sure you save the document as a .rtf (Rich Text File) or .txt (Text Document). These are universally compatible with most word processors, including all of those on campus.
My USB drive is not working in the labs. How do I fix it?
You cannot have a USB Device that attempts to install something or runs software to prompt for a password. These drives install applications that block you from using files in a regular manner. Uninstall the software on the device and use it as a plain USB and you will be ok.

You may use the labs when it is open and class is not in session. Check the sign on the computer lab door for class times.
