Hi,

 I hear that OSU has set up a graphics lab full of Amigas.
Can anyone at OSU report on what is going on there with
the Amigas? Are they being used for instruction, development
or both? If so, does OSU plan on making what they develop
available to the public Amiga community?

This is your chance to speak up and show off - I think it's
great that a large university had the smarts and guts to
invest in such a great box - even a lot of students could
afford to have their own... so, Que Pasa Man?

Eric

Although I am not the most qualified to answer this question, I *AM* a
student at OSU and am somewhat familiar with the Amiga lab and its
uses...

	The Amiga Lab is a cooperative project between the IRCC (the 
Instruction and Research Computer Center, OSU's answer to the Pentagon)
and the College of the Fine Arts.  Presently the only class that I am
aware of that is utilizing the Amigas is a computer art/graphics class
(which sounds interesting to this undergrad since it does not have any
prereq's) but I am sure that OSU has other (bigger) plans for it.

	Right now IBMs and Apple Macs proliferate the campus with little
room for other high-end machines such as the Amiga and the Atari ST
(to which I am partial -- since I own one) but I am in no way an
"Atari soldier" -- I like to take computers on their merit -- and there
isn't a computer system that exists or has existed that has not had many
purposes.

	I am going to be starting a local ST/Amiga source database on this
system, thanks to my system manager.  All the posts here on the net are
much, much appreciated.
