The College recently announced the release of the Tougaloo College app that is now available in both Google Play Store and the Apple Store and is compatible with all mobile platforms.
The app is intended for use by students and staff but makes information available about the College available to anyone.
According to the College the project is still a work in progress, and they are seeking feedback on what feature users would like to see in the app.
Tougaloo College and the Office of Information Technology maintain that they “are committed to increasing usage of technology to be competitive with other institutions of higher learning, making sure to provide an enhanced experience to the entire campus community. The Tougaloo app is an extension of what is provided on TheLoo, but in an app format which provides easier access to the pages you use the most.”
