At Franklin & Marshall College, we believe that the computer is an indispensable tool for scholarship and we are committed to the integration of computing in the curriculum. Using their computers, professors can make assignments and develop digital content. Students can submit their work over the campus network and collaborate with professors and classmates.
Franklin & Marshall uses our information portal, Inside F&M, as the vehicle to provide access to important and essential campus services. From their computers students can freely access:
Students should plan to bring computers with them to campus. The College has partnered with Apple, Dell and Lenovo to make it easy for students to purchase their computers directly from those vendors. Information regarding student purchases can be found on the IT Student Purchases web page: go.fandm.edu/studentpurchases.
The College recommends Google Chrome as the default web browser. You can download Chrome at www.google.com/chrome.
Franklin & Marshall uses Google Apps for Education for email, calendaring, file storage and other services. To find out more about Google Apps for Education, please visit http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/education/benefits.html.
