Student Purchases

What kind of computer should I bring to school?

Your choice of computer is purely a matter of personal preference.  Both Windows and Macintosh computer platforms are supported on campus.   It is recommended that you contact the department of your major study to found out any requirements or recommendations.  For example, the Neeley School of Business now requires students to bring a PC laptop or notebook computer.

Make sure to take advantage of the following educational discounts if you are looking for a new computer:
