A group of 43 Clemson University freshmen are using a new web-based calendar program this fall that integrates with students’ mobile devices and sends alerts when campus events change time or venue.
DormNoise, an online calendar created by University of Pennsylvania junior Jay Rodrigues, is the official student calendar system for Clemson, Bay State College in Boston, and Bryant & Stratton College, which has campuses in four states. At Clemson, officials are providing the service to first-year students focusing on majors such as nursing, health sciences, and education.
Kristin Goodenow, an academic advisor at Clemson, said DormNoise’s real-time calendar updates let campus officials schedule events for the freshmen group easily. Students can then respond if they plan to attend.
