(October 20, 2006)–ST. LOUIS, MO–Today’s on-the-go college students arrive on campus with laptops, PDAs, cell phones and MP3 players. During the 11 hours per day they are engaged with these digital devices, they also use them as educational tools. As a result, these mobile students are increasingly expecting higher education institutions to provide quick, easy, online access to information and services and are actively seeking campuses that do.

During a special meeting hosted by Three Rivers Systems, Inc.® at EDUCAUSE 2006 for prospects, clients and the press, Three Rivers Systems, Inc. noted this significant trend and presented CAMS Enterprise®–a complete administrative solution, including portals and course management, that manages the entire student lifecycle online. Built on proven Microsoft technologies, CAMS Enterprise provides 24/7 access to real-time data anywhere, anytime–through a Web browser. This innovative solution allows institutions to engage the mobile student while simultaneously improving administrative productivity. Students can communicate and collaborate with peers and faculty, take classes remotely, accept financial aid, submit papers and receive grades online, email professors, make online tuition payments, register for classes and more.

With the increasing number of users requiring access to online information and services, higher education is struggling to attract and retain these mobile students and maintain their competitive edge. As today’s mobile students alter the way higher education works, CAMS Enterprise provides an easy to implement solution that enables schools to enhance their administrative system and embrace these students’ needs.
