The question we get asked most often is "should I get a Mac or PC?" In short, students should purchase a computer on the platform they are most comfortable with. Most academic programs do not have a requirement for a specific platform.
We recommend students purchase a computer with the fastest process, the most RAM and the largest hard drive storage they can afford, however for minimum requirements we recommend an i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. These specifications should satisfy most students for their entire stay at Le Moyne.
We require all students to have up to date anti-virus software on their computers. Common anti-virus programs include, but are mot limited to, Avast, Avira, and AVG. These programs are all free and Mac/Windows compatible.
Le Moyne College provides internet connectivity via wired and wireless access.
Wireless access is available via Dolphin-Secure. Surdents can sign into Dolphin Secure using their Le Moyne user name and password and will have wireless access across campus. Students will only have to log in once and should connect automatically until their next password change.
Dolphin-Guest is our wireless network available to guests. It requires a text-enabled cell phone number in order to connect to the network. This network is only available in academic buildings and public spaces.
Wired access via Ethernet is available to all students in residence halls. Due to the increasing number of devices connecting wirelessly, we strongly recommend using the wired network for a faster and more reliable connection. The College requires all devices using the wired network to be registered at deskreg.lemoyne.edu. If your computer doesn't have an Ethernet port, you will need to purchase an Ethernet adapter. You will also need an Ethernet cable (Cat-5e Cable) to connect your computer to the jack in your room.
