Cumberlands Introduces the iPhone App for UC

 


WILLIAMSBURG, KY - University of the Cumberlands (UC) has officially launched its new iPhone Application (University of the Cumberlands Mobile). The free application is available for download on your iPhone’s App Store (search CUMBERLANDS) and offers many beneficial features for students, faculty/staff, alumni, prospective students, and friends of the college.

Students can now check their grades, absences, and other classroom information from their phone with the app’s iLearn section. Also included is a campus locator for all UC buildings and departments. Simply by choosing a building or department, viewers will have the option of receiving directions to its location or viewing a campus GPS map, as well as contact information for each.

The new application also offers access to UC’s library and bookstore. Students can retrieve online resources as well as order textbooks and UC apparel. Also, student activities and events can easily be found with the use of the campus events calendar.

Submitting online forms has become easier as UC now offers faculty and staff the opportunity to complete campus requests forms from their phones.

UC sports fans now have the ability to follow games while on the go. Athletics events (video and audio) will be broadcast live on the application as well as archived “On Demand” to allow the audience to view them at their convenience.

Cumberlands’ campus radio station, 94.5 WCCR, is now streaming live 24/7 on the application. All student and faculty shows will be available through the free download of the app.

The application process for prospective students has never been easier. With just a few clicks, students can easily apply for enrollment at UC. Prospective students can also schedule a visit through UC’s admissions office and find what degrees are offered at Cumberlands.

Alumni can now keep up to date with Homecoming as well find/submit prayer requests, update information, and even search for other alumni.
