GORDON COLLEGE RECOMMENDED STUDENT LAPTOP PROGRAM
The information below is the details for the 2013–2014 Laptop program.
Because of how fast technology changes, we recommend not purchasing new computers until after June 1st to ensure they get the latest model/best pricing. While Gordon College does not require students to have computers, we do recommend that students come to campus with one of the recommended laptops listed below. Laptops enable anytime, anywhere learning. Gordon has complete wireless coverage in all the residence halls and over 150 wireless hotspots available in and around the academic buildings, allowing you to connect to the Internet from various locations. Bring your laptop to class, access your Blackboard class sites and bring your computer home over break to keep up with friends and get a head start on next semester's classes. When you want help with your recommended laptop, it's easy to bring it to the Center for Technology Services for support.
At Gordon College, we support both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems. It is up to you to choose which one you wish to bring to Gordon.
