Dakota State University is helping out those who may not have easy access to a computer.  The university recently provided 20 refurbished computers to the residents of the Oxford Sober Living Homes in Sioux Falls. Computer access can help residents of these homes in a number of ways as they recover from drug and alcohol addictions.  

Dr. Barbara Myers, a DSU lecturer in computer science, said that students in her hardware, virtualization, and data communication class, held at the Community College for Sioux Falls, worked on the project to get the donated computers running and installed.

In addition to helping the residents of the Oxford houses, the project helps the computer students by offering hands-on, real-world experience. 

  Several other Sioux Falls businesses also contributed to the project.
