Online Laundry Alerts at Gettysburg College

Hello. My fascination with the topic of today's picture clearly demonstrates either: 1) I've been away from college dorm life for too long, 2) I'm very easily impressed, or 3) all of the above.

Last month while staying at the dorms on the campus of Gettysburg College while attending a Gilder Lehrman Institute on Lincoln, I came across this sign in the laundry room. This is way too cool - you can log in and check on the status of your washing machine or how much time is left on the dryers? Wow. This would have saved me some considerable time in college as I would run down the steps of my dorm to see if I could use the person who was using the dryer had finished. The other cool thing about this laundry room, which I'm sure many campuses now have, is the ability to pay for the washing machine and the dryer using a campus credit card.

Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool.

  1. Those have got to be new! I'm a Gettysburg grad and I've visited the campus regularly since I graduated (not that long ago) and they weren't there last year. Ah well.

    Out of curiousity, do you know the name of the dorm you stayed in?
