Incoming Students

If you purchased a laptop through the College Bookstore, it will work with the College’s wireless services.
If you already have a wireless card in your laptop, it should pick up the signal in the locations listed above.
Your wireless performance is dependent upon the model wireless card installed.

Caution: Use of wireless technology should be treated as you would an Internet café. It is a public service and caution is advised. The wireless network is separate from the College network. Data traffic is not as tightly secured. Wireless transmissions increase the possibility of data theft. Use at your own risk.
