Shenandoah University has chosen to make ““going greenÃ¢â‚¬Â one of its priorities, and has chosen to Apple products for the next class of newcomers and some faculty.
““It was a key factor in choosing the MacBook,Ã¢â‚¬Â Bryon Grigsby, Shenandoah’s senior vice president and vice president for academic affairs, told Macworld. ““The university’s strategic commitment to the environment and sustainability partners very well with the MacBook’s pro-environment elements.Ã¢â‚¬Â
This fall all incoming freshmen, some grad students and some faculty will get MacBooks and an iPod Touch.
““The university community sees the iPod as a vibrant connection tool that will allow us to come together and be fully informed of what is going on in and around campus,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Grigsby. ““We are also seeing ways that our daily business can be done onlineÃ¢â‚¬”students can register, pay bills, or see next semester’s offerings easily and quickly.Ã¢â‚¬Â
it will be interesting to see how this plays out when I’m on the campus in the next year.
