Our friends at Texas A&M have upped the CampusBird stakes, rolling out an impressive college move-in day layer.
Here’s a rundown and photo slideshow of how Texas A&M is making their interactive campus map a workhorse of useful and accessible information for students, parents and visitors.
The move-in day shuttle route is highlighted in purple. Super convenient.
Twenty-five residence halls are highlighted in Aggie Maroon so students can quickly find their new home. Headed to Legett Hall? Pick up your key up at Room 122.
Polygons are used to indicate parking types (and you can click on every lot for more information). Green indicates free visitor parking; Yellow lots are a 1-hour unloading zone. Parking areas for the disabled are also clearly marked. And, the TAMU team made it super easy – when you click on a specific residence hall, all the parking lots in the immediate area are automatically highlighted.
Six Information and Refreshment Stations are clearly marked with big red “I”s. Because on move-in day everybody needs some information and refreshing.
Cardboard Recycling Stations
Lots of cardboard! These recycling stations are also mapped out to appear when a specific residence hall is selected.
