No on the ground experience with the school server.

wvdial gets me nothing that pppd and Network Manager don't already do
better.  Packages ppp and NetworkManager.  Should be there now.  Plug
the modem in and try to create a connection in the UI.

wvdial usually springs up because it was an early solution that people
remember with fondness, or find in outdated documentation.
