Seton Hill to offer incoming students iPads and Macbooks

Seton Hill, a private Catholic University in PA,  has found an interesting way to recruit new students – a free iPad and MacBook for incoming first year students in Fall 2010.  Called the Griffin Technology Advantage, the program is designed to provide top notch technology to students for 24 hour learning opportunities in order to “think outside of the classroom.”   Students will be given a new laptop after 2 years, one they can keep after graduating.  Interesting that the announcement made no mention of eBooks or textbooks.  Hopefully they are part of the master plan!
