Productivity Suite

The standard productivity software in use at Pacific University is Microsoft Office.  The Microsoft Education Store sells discounted licenses of Microsoft Office to students.  Note that Microsoft Office is already installed on all university owned computers.  Educational copies of Microsoft Office can also be purchased through the university bookstore.

Spyware/Malware Removal

These recommendations apply to personally-owned computers only.  University owned computers are protected by Symantec Endpoint Protection and a server-based version of Malware Bytes. 

*Do not install if you already have a third-party antivirus program on your computer, e.g. Norton, Kaspersky, AVG.
