Suite News: It’s APPening at USG!


Rachel Wolohan, Senior Coordinator in the Office of Student Services

One of the most rewarding things about working at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is that we are always trying new things to engage and assist students in their educational experience.

As a Senior Coordinator in the Office of Student Services, you can usually find me planning Civic Engagement Series events with students, helping student veterans on campus, or marketing campus-wide events on USG Weekly or USG Highlights elevator signs.  But over the past few months I’ve also been working diligently in collaboration with other groups and departments at USG to bring our new USG Mobile app to life, and I’m super excited to announce that it’s just been made available in the Google Play and Apple Store. It’s no secret that students are constantly on their phones, so what better than to have all the information they need about what’s happening on campus, right at their fingertips! USG Mobile is here, and you won’t want to miss having all the information you need readily available.

The app has so many different features, but I want to highlight my top three favorites:

  1. Weekly Menu – See what’s being served in the cafe each week under the dining tab. So now, you no longer have to walk down to the cafe, you can stay in the library studying, or in Building I without having to walk over in the cold.
  2. Events – Get access to a quick calendar view of ALL the events happening on campus — you can even add them to your personal calendar and share them with your friends.
  3. Push Notifications – Get reminders about big things happening on campus, so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!

And USG Mobile is not just for students! Faculty/Staff will want to know what they can eat for lunch, too!  Winter is coming and USG Mobile also has an easy way to sign-up for the inclement weather alerts when campus has delayed openings or closed. Stay in the know with all the APPenings at USG.

Download USG Mobile today in the Google Play Store or the Apple Store — just search “USG Mobile.” And be sure to stop by the “Appy Hour” tablings on Monday, November 20th or Tuesday, November 21st in the Green Grove Cafe from 11:30am-12:30pm. We will be giving away some free phone accessory swag to those who show us that they have downloaded the app.  #LifeAtUSG #USGMobile
