Campus Announces Partnership With Athens State University
University adopts digital platform to further engage with students, faculty and alumni
DENVER, September 29, 2020 – Campus, a contemporary mobile and web-based portal platform, today announced a new partnership with Athens State University (Athens State).
Athens State has a long history in higher education after being founded as Athens Female Academy in 1822. Over 3,000 students opt to attend Athens State across over 50 different degree programs. Athens State prides itself on being friendly, affordable, and convenient and offers day, night, weekend, and distance courses to its student body.
“Athens State has a desire to stay connected to not only their students and alumni but also offer additional support to its faculty. Campus will provide them with a digital campus to surface the right resources at the right time to different cohorts,” said Chase Williams, CEO at Campus. “COVID-19 has created a greater urgency to expand online resources, but this is a trend we’ve seen institutions such as Athens State embrace in a natural evolution to cater to increasingly technologically savvy generations.”
Campus is a modern, cloud-hosted portal that connects people, platforms, and processes. The application serves as a dynamic, one-stop-shop on any device. Campus.app offers an integrated digital community that increases engagement and improves the overall student experience.
“Athens State’s goal is to integrate our online systems and services to improve usability and data continuity. We also see the need for a mobile-friendly platform to improve user engagement through notifications–our students prefer mobile interactions over email,” said Derrek Smith, senior director of Student Success and co-director of Pathifyways to Success, at Athens State. “We particularly appreciate Campus’ ability to give us insights that identify at-risk students and provide people with a more personalized approach to the Athens State online community.”
The Campus team is thrilled to have the opportunity to assist Athens State in amplifying critical communications, connecting people to reinforce a sense of community, and facilitating business continuity throughout the current climate and beyond.
Campus is the leading web portal, mobile app software, and support services provider for Higher Education. With a team of former university executives and technologists, Campus is rapidly replacing outdated portals with a modern, cloud-hosted platform that reduces costs, saves time, and connects college constituents with a personalized, one-stop-shop so they can thrive and succeed. Campus has offices in Denver (headquarters), New York, and Melbourne, and is the flagship product of Ucroo Incorporated. Visit campus.app for more information.
