Abass Abdul-Rahaman and Gopal Yeruva, graduate students in Valparaiso University’s information technology master’s program, have been honored for a mobile application they created for undergraduate students.

During their time as IT interns at Valpo, Abdul-Rahaman and Yeruva collaborated with departments across campus to develop the app to be used during new-student orientation. It includes schedules, electronic roommate requests, useful links, and interactive maps. Following orientation, they released an update for Valpo’s Welcome Week.

The app won Best in Class for General Service Campaign Materials, awarded by Special Interest Group for University and College Computing Services. The recipients were honored at the organization’s annual conference in Salt Lake City.
