Harvard and Radcliffe College alumni/ae returning to campus for this spring’s reunions will be able to connect in more ways than ever, thanks to the new Harvard/Radcliffe Reunion app for smartphones.
The app allows reunion-goers to browse reunion events, add them to their calendars, see who else is attending, and view their own location on the campus map. Alumni will also be able to check in at events on Foursquare, monitor reunion-related activity via Twitter, and share photos and video with classmates via Facebook.
“Our alumni are accustomed to a mobile-first culture of information consumption and social connection in their daily lives, and their experience on campus should be no different,” said Philip Lovejoy, deputy executive director of the Harvard Alumni Association “The Harvard/Radcliffe Reunion App will facilitate and enhance the way they engage with their returning College classmates at reunion as well as the University.”
The app is a collaborative effort between Harvard Public Affairs and Communications, the Harvard Alumni Association, and Alumni Affairs and Development Communications and is available both as a mobile web application, accessible by browser on any smartphone, as well as native iPhone and iPad applications.
The mobile web application is available here. The free iPhone and iPad applications are available in the iTunes app store, and can be used with the iPhone 4, 3GS, and 3G hardware.
