Barnard recently announced the launch of Mobile Barnard, the College’s new mobile app. In just the past two years, mobile has become the platform of choice for anyone seeking information, socialization, and entertainment. By the time the class of 2016 graduates, it is anticipated that close to 90% of college students in the U.S. will own a smartphone. With Mobile Barnard, the College hopes to provide valuable information and convenience to our campus community, alumnae, and visitors, as well as to prospective students from all over the world.
The app is free and ready to download to iPhones and Android devices. Just visit the App store or the Google Play store. There is also a web-based version accessible by any smartphone or tablet via m.barnard.edu.
Mobile Barnard provides helpful tools and information, including maps, library, news, events and dining hours, as well as links to the directory, academic calendar and useful external sites. It also contains a special admissions module with information and more for prospective students.
As with all digital platforms, Mobile Barnard is a work in progress, and the College will be incorporating feedback and adding services along the way. Help improve the app by sending comments to firstname.lastname@example.org, or directly from the app by tapping “About,” then tapping “Send us feedback!”
