LIFESTYLES CARDINAL COURIER • C ardinal C o u r ie r O n l in e . com APRIL 8,2009 19 C o m p u t e r u n c o v e r e d STAFF WRITER S A M A N T H A W O O D With only a few weeks left before the end o f the semester, students will be­ gin the common end-of-the-semester ritual: seemingly endless studying. It is that time of year when all the popu­ lar labs are jam-packed and it seems almost impossible to find an available computer. Contrary to what many may believe, there are actually a lot of available computer labs throughout the cam­ pus. Most people are familiar with about three or four labs but in actual­ ity, there are 19. Hie library actually has two areas \that are filled with coiripu'ters for stu­ dent use. Not only does the main floor of the library have a significant amount of computers, but so does room L10C on the lower level, In this room there are 25 computers. Both of these labs become unavailable when the library closes. The library also loans out laptops for student use. A student can check out a laptop for a four hour period with their Fisher ID. The student is allowed a two hour renewal if there is no one waiting to check one out. These laptops can only be used within the library, and there is a $5 per hour fine if a laptop is not returned in time. Lavery Library is open Monday through Thursday from 7:45 a.m. until midnight, Friday from 7:45 a.m. until 8 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m, and Sunday from 11 a.m. until midnight.. Another popular computer lab is found in Kearney. There are actually four areas that are open to all students. K050, the large open area of Kearney, is open 24/7. Students simply need to swipe their IDs to enter. Hie other three rooms, K054, K059 and K061 axe locked around 11 p.m. and on week­ ends. The Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Building also houses a commonly used com­ puter lab, room W115, which is open to all students. Security typically locks the buildings for the night around 10 p.m. Unknown to many, the Wegmans School of Nursing also has two labs open to all students. Between the two areas, located in rooms 207 and 308, are a total of 64 computers. These labs are locked around 10 p.m. as well. The computer lab located in the basement of Michaelhouse is also available to students. Much like the open area of Kearney, the Michael­ house Lab is open 24/7 with a swipe of a student ID. Another great resource is the Math and Writing Center, located on the top floor of the Golisano Academic Gate­ way. Not only can students receive help with their math homework or their many papers, but th ey can also use one of the seven computers avail­ able to students. This area is open Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m., Thursday from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., and Friday from 9 a.m. until noon. The Math and Writing Center is closed on the weekend. There are also several computer labs available to certain majors. The Skalny Science Center has three labs intended for biology ma­ jors. These areas are located in AO09, A101 and A225. All three of these labs are open until the buiLdings are locked for the night, Hit Wegmans School o f Pharmacy has a computer lab for pharmacy stu­ dents in room 219. This room can only be accessed with a valid student ID. Within Basil Hall, the communica­ tion/journalism majors also have a lab available to them, the Macintosh computer lab. This lab can only be entered with a class or with special permission. The last computer labs available are within Pioch HaUin rooms C106, C108 and C117. Although C106 and C108 are only available to students in the math and computer science de­ partments, Cl 17 is open to everyone. Like the other labs located in the aca­ demic buildings, these labs are locked at night around 10 p.m For additional information, go to http://keep2.sjfc.edu/class/bnapoli/ csci480/tjp8287/srpr«ject/default.asp, a seniorproject created byA.I.T. major Tom Pysnack. This website features ev­ ery computer lab on campus and lists important information about each. Throughout the campus, there are hundreds of computers available to students if they know where to find them. sskOl O50(S>sjfc. edu SOLUTIONS FROM PH€E 20 SUDOKU 1 9 5 2 8 3 7 4 6 1 4 8 1 9 6 5 3 7 2 3 6 7 2 4 1 9 5 8 2 9 8 6 7 3 1 4 5 7 4 5 1 2 8 6 3 9 1 3 6 4 5 9 2 8 7 5 1 9 3 8 6 7 2 4 8 2 3 7 9 4 5 1 6 6 7 4 5 1 2 8 9 3 SUDOKU2 4 7 2 1 9 6 8 3 5 6 3 1 2 8 5 7 4 9 8 5 9 7 3 4 2 6 1 3 9 7 8 5 2 4 1 6 1 4 5 9 6 7 3 8 2 2 8 6 3 4 1 9 5 7 7 6 8 5 2 3 1 9 4 9 1 4 6 7 8 5 2 3 5 2 3 4 t 9 6 7 8 WANT MORE?
