It's back to school for Alexa

The oldest university west of the Mississippi is the first to equip smart speakers in their dorm rooms. St. Louis University has added Amazon Echo Dots to all first- and second- year student dorms, housing 528 students. The network of Echo Dots can answer over 135 questions about campus events, building hours and even nearby food options. The goal of this project? Helping new students adapt to college life. According to a university spokesperson, “Being 17 or 18 years old, living on your own with somebody you probably don’t know that well, it can be a lot of stress. We’re trying to ease that transition into school life.” Good thing Alexa is here to save the day.
