OK, we all see a lot of college-ranking lists – everything from top technical schools to top party schools – but most recently with the explosion of technology in higher education a new list has debuted, named the Most Connected Colleges. The listing, launched by U.S News & World Reports, is the first-ever ranking to honor schools that have successfully applied technology to improve the connections between students and educators.
We were excited to see Maine’s Bowdoin College rated right at the top of the list! Among many tech initiatives, Bowdoin College engaged Cisco to help extend a reliable and secure wireless network throughout its campus with indoor and outdoor access.
For more on how Bowdoin was able to achieve this status, check out our very own Vivian Chan’s post on our mobility blog “Bowdoin College Takes Crown for Connected College Champion“.
Now that we’re fast approaching 2013 – will Bowdoin maintain that top position? What is your prediction for #1?
