The Villanova Cave Automatic Virtual Environment (CAVE) was featured WHYY’s The Pulse. Professor Frank Klassner and Freshman Computer Science major Charles Walberg were both interviewed by WHYY's The Pulse to explore the CAVE's potential as a classroom facility. Villanova's CAVE comes courtesy of a $1.67 million National Science Foundation grant, which covers the cost of the unit, along with a $15,000 hi-resolution camera that can be used to create original content. During the interview Professor Klassner displayed a virtual model of a newly renovated lounge and study area on campus. Charles Walberg responded to his experience in the CAVE by stating, "I'm really blown away by a) how similar it looks to the room I've actually been in before, and then b) I guess, just how real it looks, how lifelike everything is."

Senior Projects 2014 Blue Key Website

Luke and Nick will be creating a website for the Blue Key Society, the organization on campus that is responsible for giving tours to prospective students and their families. The website's purpose is twofold: to provide information about the society and its members to prospective students and tour guides and to be a tool that the current members of the society can use as well. The website will include information about the society's current executive board; a directory of all current members that will list their names, majors, hometowns, and expected dates of graduation; a calendar of Blue Key events; a page where members can request a substitute as well as volunteer for a special tour; and a list of the Blue Key family standings that will be updated weekly.
