January 21, 2013
ALLIANCE, Ohio – The University of Mount Union has launched a free mobile application that is available for download from the app store on both Android and Apple devices. Users simply need to search “Mount Union” to find the application.
Created to enhance the Mount Union experience and keep users up to date on campus events, the app lets users read University news, watch videos, view photos and access the faculty/staff directory.
Users can also use the application to find maps and addresses of locations on campus. Choosing the “Campus” button takes downloaders to a map image of Mount Union, where it is then possible to look up buildings on campus in order to find their exact locations and addresses.
App users can also view athletic news categorized by sport. The “Athletics” button will link users to a list of all sports at Mount Union. An events page links to an academic calendar and an updated list of the events taking place on campus for the current week. In addition, a “Get Social” button connects users to Mount Union’s official Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin and Flickr accounts, as well as the University’s student blogger pages.
A “Help” button loads the user screen with local emergency numbers, including the Alliance police and fire stations, all campus security numbers and the phone number for the Information Desk. The “Students” button provides access to student-centered services such as email, cable lineup, a dining menu and registration.
Mount Union hopes to continuously add features to the application to ensure it is relevant and effective for users to stay connected with the University.
