The bookstore is now selling Netbooks!

Headsets with microphones are available at an additional charge.

You may even be able to purchase one of the new Netbook computers if you already have financial aid or other funding dollars remaining after all tuition and books are covered and would be receiving an overage check enough to cover the cost of the computer. Only one Netbook per student may be purchased.
