    WASHINGTON, July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Campus Technology 2007 -- As
 thousands convene this week at the Campus Technology 2007 conference to
 discuss the roadmap to IT leadership in the higher education market, this
 morning Trumba Corporation demonstrated its continuing contribution toward
 shaping this roadmap by announcing the addition of several more university
 deployments of its Trumba Connect solution.
     Johns Hopkins University, New York University, Northwestern University,

 (Toronto), St Mary's Seminary & University, Saddleback College, Howard
 Community College, and North Georgia College and State University as the
 latest institutions to leverage Trumba Connect to publish and promote
 events across their campus communities. Trumba Connect is an online event
 calendaring solution that helps colleges and universities increase event
 awareness and attendance by better connecting them with their campus
 communities through a comprehensive suite of tools that includes a hosted,
 interactive web calendar, email, and reporting services.
     Trumba-powered calendars feature relevant information about campus
 events ranging from concerts, sports activities, and theater performances,
 to department meetings, alumni gatherings, and community outreach programs.
 Using Trumba Connect, visitors to the universities' web sites can easily
 add events to their personal calendars, set event reminders, arrange to be
 notified if events change, and more. They can also set up RSS feeds and
 subscribe to calendar emails so that information about new and updated
 events is delivered to them automatically.
     "Trumba Connect is gaining recognition as the solution of choice for
 schools seeking to better connect their campus communities by leveraging
 the importance and draw of university events," said Jeremy Jaech, CEO of
 Trumba. "Our solution has seen such success in this market because it
 offers a very clear value proposition to all stakeholders in the university
     Every university group, whether a department, club, class or team,
 brings people together for one reason or another and these groups recognize
 that Trumba Connect is a great way to help them communicate their specific
 events, while also allowing them to share event information across other
 groups," continued Jaech.
     Trumba Connect allows universities to fully integrate the online event
 calendars with a look and feel that is consistent with their own brand. In
 addition, universities can protect calendars related to internal operations
 behind passwords or secure URLs.
