Modo Labs and Penn State University have launched of the new Penn State Go app, built on the Modo Campus app. Students and others in the larger Penn State community now have a single, unified mobile destination to manage their university life.

Modo is the no-code app platform designed specifically for use in and with higher education institutions and corporate enterprises. Penn State joins more than 300 universities and colleges, from community colleges like Ivy Tech to large universities like the University of Central Florida, Princeton University, and Stanford University in having used Modo to develop their campus-specific mobile platforms and bring a unified experience to students and faculty.

“Penn State has built and delivered a model mobile experience for their university community in record time,” says Andrew Yu, CTO and founder of Modo. “They did it right – brought in stakeholders and students, outside experts from other schools, leaned on our expertise and developed a custom, powerful and outstanding mobile experience for their University.”

“Penn State Go is a significant step in satisfying student’s demand for digital-first campus experiences,” says Don Welch, interim vice president for Penn State Information Technology and chief information officer. “We chose the Modo Campus app-building platform due to its agile nature and helping to meet the immediate needs and interests of students, faculty, and staff, alumni and others, but also grow with us as we expand and evolve. We are excited by what we can offer students today and also optimistic about what lies ahead.”
