Seton Hill University Gives All Students iPad, Makes Me Consider Enrollment

Dang, just…dang. According to TUAW,  Seton Hill University in Greensburg, Pennsylvania has announced that for Fall 2010 year, every full time student will be given an iPad as part of their Technology Advantage Program, saying ”students will be able to download their textbooks to their iPads from the iBook Store. In addition, iPads can be used as phones and for air and file sharing, as well as note-taking.” Apparently first-years are also given a 13-inch MacBook for more intense work.

I’m sure the cost of all this is just folded into the fees, but that’s still a pretty sweet deal for the small, Catholic, liberal arts University with enrollment of 2100 students. Maybe it’s time to go in for a PhD…
