    You got any specific areas of interest etc. in mind ? If you're looking for a more extensive & professional package mathematica is the choice, however, if you want an easier interface and so forth mathcad might be it. If you can see in the long run a lot of work ahead where you need serious math software, mathematica would be the way to go.

    Maple and Matlab are valid and serious options as well...


    EDIT:This is more of a general rule.If your school doesn't have them,it's their policy.Probably money related.
