The SDK includes a selection of cutting edge hardware devices that are loaned out at no cost to student developers. These items can be used to develop apps, hardware or other projects. Loans last up to seven days, and are...
What are you excited about in technology? We asked our tech-savvy employees and they had lots to say. We’ve been talking about advancements in technology, great on-campus tech resources, and general advice for the new semester.

Don’t be sad, award season isn’t over quite yet! Apple just released this year's winners of the Apple Design Awards . The awards are held each year to recognize the most innovative software produced by independent developers. In fact, not one but two of the winning apps this year were developed by college students. If that’s got you feeling inspired, learn more about the tech resources available to you during the summer . Did we mention it’s free? So remember to thank us when you’re up there accepting your Apple Design Award next year.

You may not be able to say ‘studied abroad in Rome’ or ‘went skydiving’ but you could say ‘made a 3-D phone case’ or ‘developed an app with Oculus rift’.

We know that’s important too.
Check out these awesome tech resources this summer:
