The Village at Heritage Point

This is a retirement community near the Evansdale Campus of West Virginia University that provides different levels of assistance to its residents based on their needs. We have created a focus group of residents, who agreed to provide real-world feedback on the various projects. This feedback will be used to design the various applications and ensure their real-world relevancy.
