I started as a freshman in Computer Science in 1981 and we had to use punched cards for the first semester. We had an IBM 4341 and started off in Watfive (the successor to Watfor, Waterloo Fortran). They had IBM 3277s and later 3278 terminals, but the intro class didn't get to use them until the next year; I was right at the tail end. Once again, when I got my first job in 1986 I had to use punched cards for 6 months until my Secret clearance came in because until I was cleared I couldn't log on. My boss just put his job card at the front of the deck and they would grab me the printout afterwards. This was probably against the rules, but we didn't deal with Secret data, nevertheless the rules were it was a secure computer and you had to be cleared to log on. After that, you guessed it, it was a 4341 departmental mini-mainframe with 3277 and 3278 terminals, and there was a large loud line printer and 9 track hand mounted tapes. Good times.
