Explore UNH: A New Campus Visitor’s Guide for University of New Haven

February 6, 2013: In response to the growing popularity of mobile devices, University of New Haven today introduced Explore UNH, a complete mobile  guide for prospective students, alumni, and visitors to campus. “Students expect an innovative, progressive campus like University of New Haven to have a strong mobile presence” commented Kevin Phillips, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management.  “Explore UNH was designed with our prospective students in mind and showcases our university beautifully.” Explore UNH provides relevant information about attending University of New Haven, including majors, student life, residence halls, dining, and mobile forms to receive additional information.  The app also serves as an on-campus guide by providing directions for parking, building-to-building walking directions, history and information on each building and campus locale.  It also is a tool to help prospective students apply to UNH and explore their future lives on campus. The Explore UNH mobile guide is divided into five categories: Welcome, Visit, Apply, Explore, and Connect.   Each section was carefully crafted to highlight UNH and allow the admissions department to be with a prospective candidate prior to and after their campus visit.  The mobile guide is also ideal for visiting alumni and conference goers to familiarize themselves with the campus.          Explore UNH was published by Smart College Visit, Inc, in partnership with University of New Haven and is available free of charge in the iTunes and Google Play Stores.

Z. Kelly Queijo The following online tools are great for keeping up. Period. Whether it's a dental appointment reminder, a phone call you need to make  or a link to a web page you need for research, any and all of these can help: FollowUpThen - a free, easy to use, email reminder tool.

An App for College-bound Students to Remember

By Kelsey Sarles You're 17 going on 18. You can't wait to get out of high school. You're over the drama, the cliques, having to ask permission to go to the bathroom, the cafeteria with its plastic cutlery. You're an adult now. You're ready for sweet, sweet freedom. You're ready for college! Did you remember to… Meet with your guidance counselor? Study for the SATs? Sign-up for financial aid? Plan your college visits! Submit your college applications? Whether you've realized it yet or not, all this new found freedom comes with a price. Yes, the plus side is that you no longer have to listen to your mom nagging you about homework. The downside is – you have to remember to finish it yourself! For the rest of your life, it's up to you to remember all the things you need to do. Fortunately, there's an app for that, and it's called Thought Full™. Thought Full is designed to solve the problem we all seem to have – keeping our act together. I personally use Thought Full to record ideas, grocery lists, and new recipes. College-bound students might use Thought Full to help remember the numerous deadlines associated with college prep: college applications, scholarship applications, recommendation letters and transcripts. Then, once classes start, Thought Full is perfect for helping students keep track of assignments. Thought Full offers four default categories: To-Do: To help you remember stuff you need to-do. Names: To help you remember the names of the new people you meet. Ideas: To help you remember bursts of inspiration. Stories: To help you remember good stories or jokes you hear. Thought Full also gives you the ability to add categories that make sense to you. The point is, Thought Full is an app to remember what you want to remember and how you want to remember it. I hope you find Thought Full helpful and memorable, too! Have fun visiting colleges! Sincerely,Kelsey Sarles (She Who Had the Thought for Thought Full™) You can learn more about Thought Full™ at www.thoughtfullapp.com. Thought Full is available in the iTunes App Store for $0.99 and is coming soon to the Android Market! Kelsey Sarles collaborates with Smart College Vist on an on-going basis. Thought Full™ is an independent mobile app project which she created and designed. It was developed by New River Mobile and produced by Handshake Media,...
