Student Technology & Resources
First year students share offices in Lodge A (the academic building) and second year students share offices in Lodge B (The Psychological Services Center). In addition to the campus library, which has large holdings in psychology books and journals, the Doctoral Program maintains its own library of books on various topics in clinical psychology. The University also provides online access to most psychology journals. These holdings can be accessed from students’ homes or from any other computer. An extensive interlibrary loan system provides excellent access to journals that are not on the university’s subscription list. The University also has in place a campus-wide wireless network so that the internet may be accessed from a laptop anywhere on campus. Smartboards in all classrooms and many new desktop computers in Lodge A and B give students a state-of-the-art learning experience.
