Robot Joins UT Recruiting Team
Friday, 18 January 2008

You may remember an project from the University of Toledo to mount a large monitor to the 914. Since then, the 914 has been used for recruiting prospective students at Toledo, which is reported in an article over at the Toledo Blade. From the article:

"The White Box Robotics 914 PC-BOT's job is to provide a "wow factor" to make sure visitors don't forget UT, said Nick Morgan, assistant director of undergraduate admissions.

Students are visiting a lot more campuses and we want to stand out," he said.

Mr. Morgan said high school juniors and seniors used to visit a campus or two before deciding where to get their degree. Now it's common for them to visit four campuses or more, he said.

So schools have to keep looking for ways to stand out."
