Thanks to a nearly $30,000 grant from the Student Technology Fee board, the Department of Social Sciences was able to radically increase its computing power and afford students a better opportunity to prepare themselves for the technological challenges of modern social sciences. The lab is equipped with 25 computer workstations, loaded with GIS (MapInfo and ArcView) and statistical software packages, along with the standard complement of word processing and database management software. New printers and networking equipment have been recently installed. Combined with the resources available in the Department of Forestry’s Spatial Data Lab, social science students at Louisiana Tech University can take advantage of some of the best high-tech facilities in the South.
