New Internet Center Opens at Iraqi University
Iraq Fact of the Day

Salahaddin University in the city of Arbil recently opened its first Internet center and classroom. The new center provides students with 24 computers, a server, Internet connection and other supplies and materials. Some students have had Web access at Internet cafes in town, but no Internet center existed on the university's campus. Computer science education and Internet access provide new ways for Iraqi students to reconnect with the rest of the world after years of war, dictatorship, and isolation.
