University of Phoenix Puts 'Apple Store' Spin on Education Center

BUT IS THERE A GENIUS BAR? “An Apple store for education.” That’s how Dennis Bonilla, executive dean of the College of Information Systems and Technology at the University of Phoenix, describes the for-profit institutions’s latest project in downtown Las Vegas.

Called RedFlint, the community education center is geared toward anyone who wants to start a business but doesn’t know exactly where to start. The center features stations where visitors can learn more about technologies including virtual reality and SAS. Redflint will also offer free workshops and more extensive certificate programs. Doors open Saturday—let’s hope the lines are shorter than those for the iPhone 7.
