Each one of you have access to computers at the various lab sites on campus - you pay a  technology fee each semester for this. So, excuses such as:

  • I don't have a computer at home...

  • My computer broke down, or caught a virus...

  • I couldn't get to campus on time...

  • My printer is out of ink...

  • I don't know how to use a computer...

  • And  others...
