ULM adds new weather and alumni features to mobile app

Those who have the University of Louisiana at Monroe’s mobile app will find a few new features in the latest update including local weather conditions and ULM Alumni Association events.

The new features are part of ULM’s two-year-old app, which is a vital resource to students, faculty, staff, and the community.

“Adding the current weather conditions to ULM Mobile is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time,” said Richard Peacock, web application programmer at ULM. 

“It’s a great tool for quickly deciding if you should bring that umbrella to class with you when you step out of your dorm room or car.”

The new Alumni Association feature has the potential to bring alumni closer to the university community with event listings, contact information, and the opportunity for alumni to update their information with the association.

“We are excited to see an Alumni component added to ULM’s mobile app,” said Tommy Walpole, Executive Director of Auxiliary Services at ULM.

“The alumni office has worked with our computing center on this and appreciate their efforts.”

In 2012, ULM integrated new items to the mobile app including a tuition estimator, and interactive campus map, which allows students to see their courses pin-pointed on an interactive map of campus buildings to see exactly where they need to go each day to get to class.

ULM's mobile app, developed in 2011, provides a portable method for students to access much of the same information they currently access from their desktop or laptop computers.

To see these new features, visit your app store and upgrade to the latest version of ULM Mobile.

The mobile app is a free download available for iPhone, Android, and most other web-capable smart phones at
