My Notebook at Ringling College

    The Purpose of the Program

    The Wireless Notebook Computer Program is an initiative to provide notebook computers for all entering freshmen and new incoming sophomores, juniors, and seniors to augment their instructional laboratory experience and contribute to a more effective higher education learning appreciation.  We believe that the artist’s success in today’s competitive world is dependent on both creative vision and expertise. Ringling College is committed to providing students with knowledge and technical experience needed for lifelong learning. We believe that continued use of the notebook can enhance that adventure.

    Note: Incoming transfer students are supplied with a notebook matching what the rest of their peers would have received as incoming freshmen, so brand, model, and software specifications may not necessarily match what is listed above.
