Project Description: 
The Pocket Benilde Initiative is a campaign for Benildeans to discover how mobile technology can be utilized to share information relevant to the College. At its core, it involves creating a native mobile app named “The Benildean” for the Benildean Press Corps, the official student-journalist organization of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. It is mainly a news application designed to deliver content and updates relevant to the community faster and in a more accessible format. By doing so, the organization hopes to achieve not only an increased readership but a more involved and active Benildean community as a whole.
