All students are provided with a College e-mail account, as well as numerous other communications capabilities, via the College “intranet” facility known as “Wolf Den.” Students are provided with Wolf Den access at an early stage in the enrollment process and throughout their tenure at the College. Through the Technology Tab in Wolf Den, they may interact with administrative functions, such as the Registrar’s Office (register for classes, check grades, etc), Student Affairs (room assignments, etc), Business Affairs (settle accounts, etc) and their instructors (view course requirements and assignments, etc). Through Wolf Den, all students also have free access to Microsoft “OneDrive,” where they can securely store all documents. Most Wolf Den capability is available on multiple platforms.
To meet Program Learning Outcomes for the upcoming academic year and to provide access to technology, it is highly recommended that students own a laptop with wireless networking capabilities meeting or exceeding the recommended laptop requirements specified under the Technology Tab in Wolf Den. Such laptops must have installed fully functional 2010 or greater Microsoft Office Suite, which includes Microsoft Access, Excel, PowerPoint, and Word, available free of charge via Office 365. Instructions for installation can be accessed through the Technology Tab in Wolf Den. While basic computer lab capability is provided in the Library Commons, there may be program specific computer requirements. Students should see catalog for specific program or course computer requirements as well. Technical assistance is available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by dialing 803-321-5646, or by dialing extension 5646 from any campus phone.
