Maryville University has been recognized for its high-tech learning environment for the second time by being named an Apple Distinguished School for 2018-2021.
The accolade praises the university for its leadership and excellence in offering a high-tech and mobile learning environment, with the Digital World program offering a particular focus on digital skills and personalized learning.
Apple Distinguished Schools look to use technology in learning to encourage academic accomplishment and inspire creativity with critical thinking.
''Maryville University is proud to receive our second consecutive Apple Distinguished School designation,'' President Mark Lombardi, PhD said. ''The recognition reaffirms our active learning approach as a revolutionary model for the future of higher education,'' he added.
Package locker station
Students at Maryville University can now pick up packages 24/7 thanks to a new Package Locker Station on campus.
Located on the east side of the Donius University Center, the lockers allow students to access deliveries, at their convenience, by accessing them with a unique code.
''Maryville is the first university in St. Louis to install this type of station, and we are very excited for our residential students to experience this innovative technology,'' said Laura Stevens, Director of Auxiliary Operations.
