Computer Lab Information
The Evans Arts and Science Building has a lab located on the second floor in room 219 with 31 computers. In addition, various departments have labs for student use.
No Food, No Drink, No Smoking, No Tobacco Policy
There is a policy of No Food, No Drink, No Smoking and No Chewing Tobacco in the lab. We also ask that you answer phone calls in the hallway to preserve a friendly work environment. These rules are strictly enforced and failure to comply will result in the loss of lab privileges.
Computer Lab Hours
The hours that the lab will be open are posted on a schedule in the hallway outside the lab. The lab is closed during specific times for professors to hold classes and these times are noted. As a general rule, it is available Monday through Thursday 8 AM - 12 AM, Friday 8 AM - 4 PM, and Sundays 1 PM - 10 PM.
The open lab machines run the Windows and Linux operating systems. They also have many applications installed including Firefox, Thunderbird, Matlab, Maple, SPSS, Adobe Creative Suites, Java, and the Microsoft Office suite that consists of Word, Access, Excel, and PowerPoint. In addition, there are several applications that are designed for use in specific classes.
**No SJC machine has Microsoft Works installed so all documents created in Works will need to be converted to Word format if you choose to print in the lab.
What about printing?
The Computer Lab has a laser printer available for students to use. Students can print directly from any lab machine to the printer. If you don't have a printer in your room, you can save your information to a flash drive or to your network drive and use the printer in the lab.
Ways to Find Help in the Lab
There are students working in the lab during open lab hours to assist you. They will have a sign located on their computer that designates them as a Lab Monitor; their name will also be posted on the wall behind them. They are able and willing to assist you with problems that arise while you are working in the lab.
