Winona State University will be the first public university in the Midwest to offer a tablet and a laptop to all students starting in fall 2013.
WSU's Digital Life and Learning Program will provide all new Winona State students, and students due for their two-year laptop exchange, an iPad mini or Android-based tablet along with their Mac or PC laptop. The mobile tablet device will be provided with no increase in current technology costs.
Following this schedule, all full-time Winona-campus students will have both tablets and laptops by fall 2014. WSU-Rochester students will have the opportunity to participate in the program, but it is not required.
