Oklahoma Christian University gives students opportunity to trade in Windows PCs for Apple Macs

At Oklahoma Christian University this summer, all faculty and all new students attending New Student Orientations will be issued new Apple MacBooks. Current students also will be given the opportunity to trade in their Windows PC laptop for an Apple MacBook. This MacBook mobile learning initiative and the reliable campus-wide wireless infrastructure will allow OC to continue to provide opportunities for anytime, anywhere access to media-rich distributed course content.

In addition to the Apple MacBooks, the University will offer students an option of either an Apple iPhone or iPod touch. The University is providing this option with the understanding that some students will not want to activate the iPhone with the associated service contract and costs, while others will prefer the iPhone and the added capabilities. The student will be responsible for the activation of the iPhone with the service provider.

  1. Some institution of higher learning. How the hell are these kids going to be prepared for the REAL WORLD? Just the other day I made a few “Remember to Flush” signs for the stalls in the men’s bathroom on the second floor (accounting and finance). I did it in Microsoft Word on my Dell. Arial Black, thank you. To give you MAC dorks an idea how versatile Windows PC’s are I could have done it in Microsoft Powerpoint too.

    Your potential. Our passion.™

  2. Under the technology link of the OCU page it says that Leopard contains “Bootpicker” that allows you to boot up under OSX or Vista. I think it’s really called Boot Camp. Boot Camp, people, not Bootpicker.

    I think it might be a little embarrassing if someone tried to pick their boot in public at school.
