The student experience in higher education is a subject all areas of the college community need to attend to. A positive student experience can mean glowing online reviews, retaining students through involved alumni, and students clamoring to be admitted. While the individual student experience will be different for every member of your student body, all students on your campus will share some commonalities: their coursework to earn a degree, their involvement in activities, their preparation for a career, and their connection with other students, faculty, and staff.

  8. Fully utilize campus facilities such as science and computer labs, music rehearsal rooms, meeting spaces, and study lounges through online scheduling that shows students room availability and reminds them of their room reservations.
