Student Affairs Jumping on the Technology Bandwagon

I had the pleasure this morning of presenting to the Student Affairs division at the College about re.web. The theme for this month's meeting was all about technology.

I am encouraged by the fact that they realized some time last year that they needed to keep up with the technologies of William and Mary students. This led them to create a Student Affairs Technology Committee. With each admitted class comes new ways to communicate both before they are here and after they arrive. And, one of the most important ways to communicate with them is through our web site.

The presentation went well and there were no doubts as to why we are doing this project. But, the highlight comes from the first question I asked when I began. The question was: "Is there anyone here who has not heard of re.web?" In the room with 60+ people from about 10 different departments, not one hand was raised.
