Freshman year goes high-tech at Seton Hall

As freshman year revs up at Seton Hall University, students are moving beyond backpacks and textbooks and going high-tech.

This year, each incoming freshman is getting a Slate computer or a laptop that runs Windows 8.

They'll also get a Nokia 900 phone along with a six-month plan.

The university decided to gear up the students with the idea that having all the freshman on the same network and technology will improve cooperation and collaboration in their studies.

Seton Hall's incoming class this year is slated to be around 1,400 students. That's the biggest freshman class in the school's history.
