Since this is at an university, I would be inclined to showing them how
easy it is to do certain academic tasks. For example:

1. The ease with which one can install TexLive and get started making
beautiful reports. How all the tutorials are available as a package
and can be accessed through texdoc and texdoctk. No need for
searching online every time. And editors like Emacs and Texmaker
makes writing any documents with TeX/LaTeX even easier.
2. Easily installed and used plotting tools like gnuplot.
3. Easy access to various programming languages like Python, C/C++, Ruby
and specialised modules and tools like GSL, Boost and all the various
Python libraries.
4. Availability of specialised apps: electronic circuit design tools
available with the electronics lab spin, the very specialised data
analysis C++ framework ROOT.
5. You might also want to introduce them to shell scripts and how they
can be used to automate repetitive tasks (rather common in
academics I would say).

I hope these ideas help get you started.
