New Student Information

This year's incoming students who live on campus will receive a Lenovo Yoga S1 Multitouch Ultrabook. Incoming new (non-transfer) students received information about making the selection between the Apple iPad Air (32GB WiFi) and the Lenovo Yoga S1 Multitouch Ultrabook by email. Computer equipment is issued at New Student Orientation.

The Lenovo Yoga S1 8.1 Multitouch Ultrabook connects to network ports in the residence hall rooms or the wireless network that serves much of the University campus. Students use the computers for both academic and personal interests as they develop skills and knowledge that accentuate their formal education.

Support for the program is provided by University Technology Services. This support includes trouble-shooting, repairs, and educational services.
