There’s an App for That

Tennessee State University gets tech savvy this year as the new Tennessee State University App comes out this winter. As technology advances, the university wants to keep up with the students and steadily find ways for them to have access to important information and upcoming events.
“We have had the technology for some time now but were having problems with the registration process software which is what we really wanted to have so that by this time kids could go register for classes in the comfort of their dorms on their cell phones, but we got tired of waiting, and what better time than now to launch the new app,” said Tim Warren, the CIO of the help desk and technical support team located in the basement of Humanities.
The new app is a direct link to the university’s official website, and students’ mytsu account. Students can log on with their regular computer log-in information and get access to their grades, schedule, campus events, and athletic events. It is a free app and can be accessed through any android or apple iOS app store during the winter break.
“As soon as we put out the app and get a couple of people’s feedback we will continuously update the software to make it better,” Warren said, “We are looking forward to finally getting it out to the students since we’ve been working on it so long just for them.”
