75 ° Light Rain
Though Virginia Wesleyan offers several computer labs for student use, we recommend that you purchase your own computer for use in your dorm room. There are quite a few benefits of owning your own computer:
Virginia Wesleyan is proud to offer you special pricing and service on computers through our partnership with Dell Computers. You may purchase from a selection of laptops. They are covered by a 4-year limited warranty plus 4 year on-site service and complete care. Virginia Wesleyan is an authorized Dell repair center, most repairs can be done on campus and all repair work and replacement parts are free. Why not have a look?
We hope that you'll take advantage of the special deals that Dell offers to you, but if you already own a computer or you want to buy something else, you may do so. However, our ability to provide support and service is diminished, and we cannot guarantee that what you get will work well on our campus network. The computer services staff is specially authorized to work on Dell computers: if you run into a problem on a non-Dell computer, we will do our best to help you with it (labor is free) but we can't guarantee ready availability of replacement parts or software. For more frequently asked questions please click here.
Macs will connect to our campus network, but you should have Mac OS X or later. We'd also recommend having a G4 or faster processor (all iMacs, iBooks and PowerBooks are fine in this respect). It would also be a good idea to purchase Microsoft Mac Office 2004/08 for written communications with your professors who use PCs.
Buy a Dell! Visit the Dell/VWC customer web site and purchase a computer and check your order status.
