Memorial library student lab receives new computers


There are always some changes being made at Grambling State University and last week the historical A.C. Lewis Memorial Library was on the receiving end of those changes. Keeping up with the latest technology is extremely important for the institution’s continuous advancement. 

Over the course of two days, the student laboratory received 27 new desktop computers. The new Dell computers have larger display screens and feature newer software to help programs run faster. 

This impressive upgrade could not have come at a better time, with the end of the semester being near. Many students should soon begin to flock to the library to conduct research, study for final exams and work on final projects. 

“I am so elated and excited about the new computers at the A.C. Lewis Memorial Library,” said Mary Harris, circulation and reference assistant at the library. 

“The computer lab is utilized by many students every day for research papers, checking emails and composing reports. It is significant for the academic progress for the students at Grambling State University.” 

The Computer Information Center of the university which is led by Dick Kenny, is responsible for the maintenance of the computer lab. 

Harris expressed great appreciation for the new computer lab.

“The student body at Grambling would want to thank him in person for the fine job he does. We applaud Mr. Kenny and the entire staff of the Computer Information Center with heartfelt thanks and appreciation,” Harris said.

Although the midterm chaos has passed, it still didn’t stop students from using and enjoying the new computers.

“What I like most about the new computers is that it’s similar to my laptop, which is also a Dell, so I’m able to open the same documents and programs using the same format,” says criminal justice major Saveya Payton.

“I’m impressed with the larger size screen, with the older computers I had to squint just to review material,” said freshman Zoe Curry.
