What kind of wireless card is everyone getting in their comps?  I'm fairly computer illiterate.  I know how to use basic applications, the internet, etc. but am pretty clueless when it comes to LANs and wireless connections and whatnot.

I read somewhere that the campus is wireless, or at least that they planned on making it wireless. I'm not sure how true it is though. Hopefully it will be in the next 3 years!

Congratulations hope!  There are a few decent apartment buildings in the Villanova area.  I recommend checking at Radnor House, Radwyn Apartments, Rosemont Plaza, and Radcliff House.  Also look at Rent.com and do a search for Villanova University, that'll pop up everything in the area.  Make your calls and visits very soon though, as I know they were just about out of apartments and Radcliff House and Radwyn is also running low on 1br's.

I have no idea if the school is wireless or not, but psugirl mentioned it and it might not be a bad idea to give a call and find out.

I'm a VU undergrad.  The school is gradally going wireless, and I believe their goal is to have the whole university wireless by the end of the upcoming year.  Right now the business and engineering buildings are wireless, as well as the undergrad library, the student center, and the area outside the student center.  Once the whole campus is wireless, it will definatly be worth it to have wireless access.

I just looked at the Dell computers that VU recommends... they are pretty expensive and dont seem to be the best deal... am i missing something? I have read about better deals with Dell... any advice?

Nova gets a commission, I believe.  I have a Dell through the school, because its a requirement for my college, and I love the Dell, but I'd suggest going through them, not Nova.

Somehow I migrated through nova's site and dell's site, and ended up getting a 5% discount on any laptop. I didn't order anything, but that'll probably be the way I go unless I can find some good back-to-school computer sales.
