Subject: college computing

I need to know the current state of computing resources, support, and
curricula at liberal arts colleges in the United States. I'd be
enormously grateful for brief notes on the subject from Humanists
at such institutions. In other words, I'd like to have a sense of
what a student in any discipline might expect to find, all the way
from campus stores to dorm facilities. I'd also like to know what the
immediate plans are, e.g. to wire the dorms, require students to
purchase computers, and so forth. For present purposes, I'm not
collecting data on computing at large institutions, only liberal arts

Thanks proleptically for the time, trouble, and of course the data.

Please respond both directly to me at the address below and to the
group as a whole. Unfortunately I am in a hurry to collect this data
and so would appreciate a quick response.
