Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey is ranked 1st among the nation's "Top 25 Most Connected Campuses" that was released by The Princeton Review in 2003. Wake Forest University is rated 2nd on the list, followed by Georgia Institute of Technology (3rd), Bentley College (4th) and Rose-Hulman (5th). To identify the colleges on the list, The Princeton Review collected data from campus administrators and responses from more than 100,000 college students. Criteria included the student/computer ratio, wireless access on campus, and the breadth of the computer science curriculum.

Stevens Institute of Technology was the first institution to require all undergraduates to own and use a personal computer. In the mid-1980s, the University provided network access from all residence hall rooms to the campus network and the Internet, and in the late 1990s, Stevens completely replaced all networking within its residence halls to support gigabit-speed networking.

Rose-Hulman is the only Indiana college or university on the top 25 list. The University has made substantial improvements to its computing network and systems over the years. All faculty and students have laptops and the majority have wireless capabilities.
