As you head into life at UVM, it can be hard to keep tabs on everything. From events to deadlines, adviser appointments, registration dates, and all the ‘stuff’ in between. Luckily, there’s some apps for that. Let us help you break down your ‘Must Have’ technological solutions, why you should download them, and how they’ll help you be the UVM rock-star you were born to be.
Three UVM Apps you should download:
UVM uses this app to cover event essentials – from Admitted Student Visit Days and Orientation to Parents & Family Weekend and beyond. Once you download the app you can choose the ‘guides’ that most interest you. Looking for the Orientation schedule? Download the orientation guide. Want to find out what’s happening during Week of Welcome (WOW) – or events throughout the year? Download the UVM BORED guide. Want to sign up for a cooking class in the Discovery Kitchen? The Dining guide has you covered. The list goes on and on.
Each guide features customizable schedules, campus maps, FAQs and other tips, tools, and resources to help you navigate key programs. You can even use the UVM Compass to meet people, share photos and connect on social media and more.
College is complicated. You know it. We know it. UVM knows it. So in 2018 they launched the UVM GUIDE – an app designed with the sole purpose to help you stay on track at UVM. Think of it as your own personal digital academic advisor that’s available anytime from anywhere helping you navigate life at UVM from your first steps at orientation all the way through your epic (and well deserved) graduation. Helpful, right?
By downloading the UVM Guide you’ll be able to more easily explore majors and careers and discover all kinds of campus resources – from tutoring to ways to get involved on campus. It will even sync your classes and dates to your calendar – automatically giving you reminders about upcoming tasks, deadlines (never miss a FASFA deadline again!), and important dates. All so you can spend less time fretting over all your to-do’s and focus more on being the most successful college student you can be.
Tired of standing out in the summer rain or winter freeze waiting for a faint glimmer that that Campus Area Transportation Shuttle (CATS) is just around the bend? Wait in the elements no more – UVM’s TransLoc Rider lets you see the real-time location of all our campus busses and the routes that they take – as well as any notifications that might impact your ride.
For super-users, the Transloc service can also text you real-time updates about when the next shuttle will arrive; so you can spend more time hanging out, eating, or studying, and less time worried about when the next shuttle is swinging by. Super helpful for those dimly lit 0° February days.
