“It’s perfect for the person who wants to play around with tech and try building things for a very low price.

Emilia Nowell (ITS Help Desk):
Gift idea: iPad Pro
“This is the perfect gift for students wanting to improve their note taking techniques and have lighter backpacks. The iPad Pro can contain all of your notes and textbooks. When combined with the Apple Pencil and a note taking app it really takes your note taking and studying to another level.”

Scott Stoddard (Manager – IT Support Services)

Gift idea: Apple AirPods

“The Apple AirPods are the best portable wireless headphones you can get right now!  Since getting them I now find it so much more convenient to listen to podcasts throughout the day — if you only use one the sound will be automatically down-mixed so you don’t miss anything and that way you get double the battery life.”
Natacha Lévesque (ITS Helpdesk)
Gift idea: Google Home
Google Home is great for students. You can schedule your day and it can give you verbal reminders. You can set alarms and it’s great for music too! The best part is you can use it hands free from anywhere in your home.  You can even ask it basic questions that can help with homework.”
