Laura Engel ’07 recently won a new iPad Mini from the University's Alumni Relations office just for downloading the new Alumni Hub app to her smartphone.
Engel heard about the new app when she visited campus for Hawktober Weekend. She and her friends downloaded it when they heard they had a chance to win the iPad Mini. Engel now uses the app regularly.
"I frequently travel and use the app to see if there is anyone I know in that area. I like the map layout because it is very visual. It's something that other social networking sites like Facebook don't offer and it sets the Alumni Hub app apart. I plan on using it whenever I travel."
Engel has also told many of her college friends about the app since winning the iPad.
"The story about me winning it pretty much went viral among my group of friends and whoever wanted to listen! I hope that more alumni will download the app and start using it to make it easier to connect with people."
The University of Hartford Alumni Hub app is available for download to both Apple and Android devices.
