SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 11, 2005 — As the most technology savvy and well-connected generation of college students enters school this fall, Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., is the nation's 'Most Unwired Campus,' according to Intel Corporation's second annual survey on wireless Internet access at U.S. colleges and universities.


Last year many campuses reported limited wireless network capabilities. This year's survey, conducted with the Center for Digital Education, reveals that students are more likely to be enjoying campus life unwired. Seventy-four percent of this year's top 50 schools have 100 percent wireless network coverage on campus, up from 14 percent of the top 50 in 2004. According to the survey, the top 50 most unwired campuses are, on average, 98 percent covered by a wireless network, up from 64 percent last year.


Rounding out the top 10 campuses for the greatest wireless Internet accessibility are Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, Mich. (No. 2); University of Akron, Akron, Ohio (No. 3); Dartmouth College, Hanover, N.H. (No. 4); Carnegie Mellon, Pittsburgh (No. 5); Bridgewater State College, Bridgewater, Mass. (No. 6); St. John's University, New York (No. 7); Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland (No. 8); Bryant University, Smithfield, R.I. (No. 9); and Trinity University, San Antonio (No. 10). The complete list of Intel's 2005 'Most Unwired College Campuses' is available at www.intel.com/go/unwiredcampuses.
