Computer services available to students...
...today's Minnesota Daily reports:
As students prepare for the upcoming semester, some find themselves preparing their computers as well - clearing them of viruses, backing up important data or buying new equipment altogether.
But even the best preparation can't always prevent disaster, which usually comes in the form of a late-night error warning or an ominously blank screen.
Whether students are looking to buy new software, secure a laptop or save whatever is left of a formerly robust MP3 collection, there are many on- and off-campus services that directly relate to students' computing needs.
Students can purchase commonly-used software at a steep discount:
There are some limitations to the deal; only currently enrolled students taking at least one credit are eligible and students aren't supposed to put the software on multiple computers.
But products that normally retail for a few hundred dollars are available to students for the cost of the CD. Microsoft Office can be downloaded for free.
