Students at Setton Hill University in Pennsylvania will soon get their own iPad free of charge (well, if you don't count the $26,000 in tuition and $200 "technology fee" per year).

Combine this with the fact that undergraduate students already get a Macbook for enrolling, and Setton Hill may just be the leader when it comes to inducting students into the Apple cult.

As part of the university's "Technology Advantage Program" iPads will be distributed to all full-time students. They will then be encouraged to use them as a replacement for textbooks and pen-and-paper note-taking, and to connect with other students for file sharing.

Seems like a pretty sweet deal. Go Setton Hill Griffins!
