It seems that the software is cheaper directly from Microsoft than through
the programs here at school.

Office Ultimate 2007 is only 60 dollars. I think it is an extra 13 or so for
the disk.

I do not believe Adobe Creative Suite X is on that list. I know this because
I took a class on Photoshop/Flash and we were required to pay $700 for Flash
or $800 for Photoshop if we wanted to work from outside the labs. Many less
commonly-used Microsoft products as well as most versions of Windows are
available for free to CS students, and additional software is available
campus-wide at http://osusls.osu.edu/. 
Office 2007/2008 is available through a Microsoft contract at a discounted
price of under $100.

You can use all of this software in question, of course, in most computer
labs on campus.
