The Cadets have been blessed with a great surprise for the start of the 2019-2020 school year: They have received a new computer lab.
Twenty-five new Dell computers have taken the place of the old Lenovos that were from the Ice Age. “The monitors are like TV’s,” said senior Will Garbett. “They are huge.”
The monitors are sleek and shiny, and yes, they are quite large. They run at a significantly faster pace than the old computers, and they actually run the Microsoft Edge application. The new IT guy (Mr. Lacheney) is in the process of installing new upgrades to the computers, including the full Microsoft Office suite.
"Every time I come into the computer lab, I am so excited to finally (use it) without the computer lagging every two seconds," said senior Frankie Boehling.
"I like that the computers actually work, unlike the old ones," said senior Brennan McCaffery. "It was actually impossible to get any work done with the old ones; they were way too slow."
"I love the fact that I am able to get something done during a class period without having to wait for the computer to log in the entire time," said senior Ty Owens. "The computers make it way easier to get work done."
Bailey Coates, a member of the class of 2018, famously said in Mr. Forster's Journalism One class that, when he became a millionaire, he would proceed to buy the school a new computer lab. Who knows, maybe Coates struck it rich, because the new computers sure are nice. The Benedictine community sure is glad to finally have some modern computers. The addition of the new computer lab is terrific for BCP for the start of the new school year.
