Southern University at New Orleans will provide a new laptop computer to every incoming freshman who needs one starting this fall. The U.S. Department of Education is picking up the tab for the computers through its program that targets learning institutions impacted by Hurricane Katrina. Eddie Francis, a SUNO spokesman, said the university’s information technology program estimates about 225 laptops will be available for the upcoming fall semester. The computers will be linked to a new cloud computing system SUNO plans to have in place this summer. Students and faculty will be able to access the system through a wireless Internet connection that will cover 100 percent of the Gentilly campus, according to a statement from the university.
