Bentley students are wired ... and it's not just the lattes

Posted by Ralph Ranalli September 4, 2008 07:41 AM

Bentley College has been ranked No. 4 in the “Top 20 Wired Colleges” nationwide by PC Magazine and The Princeton Review.

According to a joint news release from the magazine and the test prep company, Bentley was lauded for having new computers (defined as less than a year old) in its computer lab and its common areas and for “putting a laptop in the hands of every freshman.”

Other area colleges making the list were Boston College at No. 6, Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering in Needham at No. 13, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which perhaps surprisingly came in at No. 20.

The number one “teched-out” campus in the country is University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the companies said.

  1. It's great, but it is too bad off-campus students in Waltham must pay for internet as the is no extensive off campus wireless availability, or is there????

  1. Its also too bad Students pay double the price of the actual cost of their laptops. Also the internet of the building is really bad, and unreliable.
