How would you like it if your university decided to give a brand new Apple iPad to every student enrolled for fall 2010? That's exactly what Seton Hill University is doing later this year, and not only will students receive an iPad; but also a 13" Macbook to use for classwork and entertainment.

The iPads will be distributed to all 2,100 incoming and existing undergraduate, graduate and Adult Degree Completion students when they arrive on the Greensburg, PA campus this fall -- and without an increase in tuition -- which is $13,16 per semester.

According to a Kary Coleman, Director of Media Relations and Communication at Seton Hill, the University has absorbed the cost of the iPads and it is not related to an increase in the student technology fee which covers the wireless campus, recently quadrupled bandwidth, an on-campus Apple Certified Service center, and more.
