These groups open doors for future business partnerships, leadership and professional development.

You can explore and search for specific groups by name, group type and categories. Easily join one or several groups at once or contact group officers directly. Gaining access and engaging in new group activities has never been easier!

Helpful Tools to Maximize Your School's Orientation Week

Orientation is always a very exciting moment for students who arrive on campus and want to know everything about their upcoming experience as a student. They're eager to network and get to know other students and potential connections arriving at school at the same time.

CampusGroups can design a unique online and mobile experience for your incoming students.

An orientation website tailored for your school

  • Create a dedicated website providing all information students and families need for your school's orientation. (Your responsive orientation website can be harmoniously browsed, read and navigated from any mobile device.)
  • Facilitate easy, accessible communication and coordination among students, families and staff.
  • Provide a day-by-day agenda with all different events and sessions.
  • Highlight a list of speakers and panels.
  • Display a map of the campus.
  • List cohorts and students in each cohort.
  • Allow your new students to log in, register to events, and message other students in their cohort or another cohort.
  • View profiles of other students.

Dedicated mobile apps

In addition to a responsive website, we design dedicated iPhone and Android apps for your school orientation.

  • Allow students to post on a feed during the orientation.
  • Post photos and comments during events, maximizing engagement during the entire orientation period.
  • School administrators in charge of orientation can post announcements and last-minute changes on the feed. Through the app, send push notifications to all students in the orientation.

Tracking attendance

2nd year students and administrators who are in charge of organizing orientation can use the CampusGroups mobile apps to track attendance at events. If students have a student ID, they can swipe their card in an iPhone, iPad or Android device at the door of the event. This integrated system will allow you to collect data about event attendance throughout the orientation period.

Wallet

On top of your orientation website and app, you can activate a wallet and order QR code bracelets which allow students to buy drinks and food during the entire event and also to check in when entering an event.

This is a great way to track attendance at all your events.

Video

We also offer the option to create custom videos to introduce the school to your students. These videos consist of interviews with students and administrators and a quick tour of your campus. The CampusGroups team advises scripts, shoots and edits your video for you.

Track When Students Double-book Conflicting Events (And Only Show Up to One)

You can't be in two places at once.

Yet sometimes students RSVP to conflicting events and end up only attending one. This results in wasted food, supplies and cash, directly diminishing ROI. Double-booking events can be frustrating for student leaders, VIP guest speakers and other event organizers: everyone who is working hard to achieve the most successful event possible.

50 students registered... and 20 show up?

Download a report that tracks and lets you know which students are double-booking events and follow up with just the right targeted students.
