Pizza-delivering Robots Have Taken Over George Mason University

Robots are all over George Mason University’s campus. But right now, they’re just delivering pizzas.

Reported by Education Dive, self-driving bots are currently making on-campus deliveries from a handful of local restaurants and coffee shops. Students can use an app to order to the food, and then access the delivery when it arrives.

The takeaway? Colleges fighting the “student perks” war may be drawn to the novelty of pizza-delivering robots. But college partnerships with these technology and robotics companies are even more interesting from an academics perspective.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
