Seton Hall University to provide Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phones to incoming Freshman
If you are an incoming freshman at Seton Hall University, it looks like you'll be getting a brand new Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone to help you make it through college.
Nokia, along with AT&T, Microsoft and Seton Hall University today announced that the entire class of 2016 will receive the Lumia 900 to support the University's mission of providing state of the art technology tools to enhance the student's college experience. This initiative started in 1997 to provide mobile technology to its students. All in all, it sounds like a very attractive initiative by all involved.
David Middleton, Seton Hall's Executive Director for the Center for Mobile Research & Innovation, noted,
"Nokia has a long history of innovation and their partnership with Microsoft allows us to extend the core academic and community resources of the University into the pocket of our students. By providing our new incoming students with the Nokia Lumia 900, Seton Hall University can expand our existing Windows services and infrastructure while providing a unique, high quality, dynamic and engaging mobile experience."
In addition to the new Windows Phones, students will have access to the SHUmobile app that provides access to campus news feeds, directories, maps and other University resources.
Seton Hall University is a private university located in South Orange, New Jersey. Annual enrollment is 5,300 undergraduate students. While no enrollment numbers were provided, average freshmen enrollment is approximately 1,100 students.
