New Student Welcome

Claremont McKenna College places a great importance on student computing. Technology is well integrated into the curriculum; our dorms are among the most wired in the country; we have great wireless coverage; and we have some of the nicest labs, both academic and residential, anywhere around. Your technology experience on campus is extremely important to us!

This site is designed to help you decide what computer to bring; what software to have ready; and what other little things you should come with - and just as importantly - what things not to bring and what software not to use.

We've even included a printable checklist to help you if you are in the process of buying a new computer. See you soon!
