The Evolution of UA Laptops

Ursuline is proud to have participated in the 2nd annual DFW Archives Bazaar among 35+ other archives and organizations. The event took place on Saturday, November 2, at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center in Denton.

Librarian and Archivist Renee Chevallier displayed Ursuline's 1 to 1 laptop program which has now been in place for over 20 years. It consisted of many of the laptops students used over the years, including the model which was the very first adopted in 1996 for the Class of 2000. 

"I always enjoy talking to history buffs," Ms. Chevallier said. "I do my best to make a display that is interactive and informative." Her display consisted of numerous laptops from over the years that attendees could interact with.  

They noted the weight and durability of the earlier laptops and commented on the evolution of laptops and how they have changed over the years. To make laptops more compact and sleek, they sometimes lost things such as the CD Drive and USB Ports.

Ms. Chevallier enjoys being a part of this bazaar and sharing a piece of Ursuline with the greater community. She is already looking forward to next year!
