The lab’s capabilities, according to David Terry, Military
Campus Programs associate coordinator, will especially benefit
HPU students majoring in computer science, a degree considered
one of the most popular for military students. “Because technology
changes so quickly, it was important to update our resources
to make the lab compatible for the needs of our computer science
program,” said Terry.
HPU paid to install Road Runner for Internet connection in
the lab and four adjacent classrooms. Instructors may tap into
the high-speed connectivity in the classroom using their laptops.
Two additional work stations can be carted into the classrooms
in case an instructor doesn’t have a laptop.
Established to serve as a resource for the students, staff,
and faculty of HPU, the lab also services the education centers
of other colleges located at the Kane‘ohe base.
