Students' ability to connect to campus events, activities gets easier

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Purdue University iPhone app now features PurdueBoard as a way to enhance the communication of events, announcements and callouts.

Students, faculty and staff can submit fliers to PurdueBoard, which sends them to Twitter, Facebook, email lists, RSS feeds and more than 100 digital signs around campus.

PurdueBoard is one of several new features now included in the official Purdue iPhone and iPad apps this fall. The notification system will now run faster, host more communicators and offer new campus scenes to enhance the look of announcements. Users also can upload their own fliers.

The Division of Student Affairs provides PurdueBoard for all students, faculty, and staff. A flowchart of PurdueBoard and a list of new features can be found at http://www.purdue.edu/PurdueBoard
