Monsters University website on-line!

I'll start out by saying I'm not thrilled by the prequel concept of MU, but I give some clever marketer at Pixar full credit for this concept.

http://monstersuniversity.com/edu/

It almost makes me look forward to the movie.

I love the 4 sleeve shirts on the store page.

Too bad they are "unavailable".

I'm actually in college right now, and the site is just like the colleges website, theirs a place to learn about student life and housing, an admission page that has a spot for Finical aid, and even a page about the teachers there.

I emailed my Mom a link to this and she will have a laugh about this.

That is so awesome!

I saw there was also a link to a Monsters University MU Net. I wonder what this log-in network is actually used for?

I have spent almost my entire working career in higher ed, and have at times had to benchmark our site against others, and this is absolutely hysterical. I just sent it to everyone in my office, who is also laughing hysterical. I'm sure others find it cute, but if you are in the field, you find it even more funny, as every college website says the same things. Now I really really really want to see that movie.

I, too, have worked in Higher Ed and love the site! It so in-depth! They really spent a lot of time developing this site. I am looking forward to seeing Monsters University!

That's awesome - thanks for sharing!


Monsters Inc is one of my all time favourite films, so I am looking forward to MU but after Brave (which I HATED, but appreciate others may have loved) I'm a little worried about where it may go....

I wouldn't be surprised if the work pre-Boo Boo in (pregnant mommy scene, etc).

The alumni section has this:

Maybe the log in network will be open soon?
