Seattle University — In a recent announcement to all students, the Office of Information Technology Services (OIT) has revealed one of the most ambitious technology programs in the nation: A pager for every student.
“We here at the office are really excited about this innovation” said Dint Clicus in a Hard Copy exclusive interview. “Now any student on campus will have access to a really neat device that will show you if someone calls you. Revolutionary really.”
The school plans to pay for this technology with a “modest tripling of the current technology fee from $420 to $1260 per year.” The money will to toward buying the pagers and ‘administration’ of the new service to students.
The service is expected to be online in early 2017, with the pagers being mailed to users. However, students are being advised to start lining up for the pay phone in the Student Center now, as lines could be almost as bad as those seen at Arizona polling facilities during the recent primary election.
