Seton Hall University Hands out Lumia 900 Phones to All Freshman

 |  |  |  |  |  June 12, 2012


Typically, when you fork over all that money for college tuition, you get a bunch of books and student loan debt. With more and more colleges moving towards integrating technology with their curriculums, Seton Hall University has announced that it will be giving all incoming freshmen a Lumia 900 smartphone from Nokia. The program is part of Seton Hall’s Mobile Computing Initiative.

The entire class of 2016 will be given the smartphone, which runs Windows Phone 7.5 for the operating system. The college hopes to give students more opportunity to learn and explore using mobile technology in the classroom. All Seton Hall students will have access to SHUMobile providing access to campus news feeds, directories, and maps.

All freshmen will also have access to an extra section of the app called the Freshman Experience. The university intends to use Nokia Data Gathering to communicate with freshman starting this summer with polls and more. Apparently, students are going to also received pre-paid AT&T network access through the Fall semester as well. After that, they’re on their own.
