how can I run adobe illustrator on a school computer?

so tommorow in our IT class we'll dive our feet into vector graphics. The thing is I am already pretty comfortable with adobe illustrator and would like to use it instead of whatever free software they'll make us learn. So, Is there any way I could use it there? I mean I can't just bring it on a usb drive, right? Or could I somehow bypass the admin permission that would prevent me from installing any apps?

I wouldn't try bypassing anything, one person at my old school did that and managed to accidentally install a worm on the system that took it out of action for 2 weeks - not worth the trouble.

If life thought me anything, it's that you shouldn't temper with school computers. You need Admin permission to write to C program partition in any case, or install any programs for that matter. You can try and get them to let you use Illustrator, but really - just use whatever they give you and try replicate it in Illustrator in your free time. Or - use your own laptop if they let you.

Sometimes you just have to roll with what you are given. You can ask to use illustrator on you laptop but if school requires you to use the program then so be it.

Just take it from a fresh graduate, it makes things a whole bunch easier. Everyone else is saying not to mess with the school computer, and it doesn't hurt to know more than one program anyways. You're at school to learn, why are you working so hard to not learn?

You know that's a good point, I'll admit
