Wish I Was A New College Applicant

As I stand at the edge of the real world, looking at a struggling economy with a weak job market, I think back to my time spent applying for colleges four short years ago. And while I’m still glad I chose Ithaca for everything that this school gave me, most notably, two semesters of Ad Lab and a lot of great times, this wouldn’t have been a poor choice either.

It was just announced that all incoming Fall 2010 Seton Hill Pennsylvania freshman will be provided with a free iPad and 13″ Macbook. Part of their Griffon Technology Advantage Program, they aim to make all of their students completely technology literate. This is also part of the university’s plan to get student to use e-textbooks instead of paper ones.

With free access to these machines, these students will have a huge upper hand when competing for jobs with those who were not provided with the same equiptment.
