Western Michigan University has been providing computer resources to students, faculty and staff since the early 1960s. Facilities have improved a lot since then, as seen in the above slideshow.

Today, WMU offers more than 2000 computers for students, in just about every discipline, college and building. Student technology fee dollars pay for operational expenses and hardware and software upgrades which are done on a rotating basis.
