Happenings at The School of Graduate Studies at the University of North Dakota

Connect U Conference

leave a comment »

Matt and I are in Minneapolis this week for a conference hosted by Hobsons. Hobsons, to put it bluntly, makes our lives at The Graduate School easier.

We use one of their products to build My GradSpace, the online application and our email communications. And we’re always looking to do more.

This conference is called Connect University. Schools from across the country have come together for this conference — from our friends at North Dakota State University to new friends from Georgia Southern University and many more.

We come together as users of Hobsons’ products. We give each other advice, we congratulate each other on successes, we brainstorm ideas for the future. We meet with our Hobsons’ reps to hear about new products (like a new app for mobile users … w00t!) and think of ways to improve our communications with prospective students, applicants and current students.

Matt and I look forward to all the events this week. I’ll be tweeting from the conference, along with many other attendees, with the hash tag #connectu10. (We love Twitter.)

And, bonus, the conference is in Minneapolis, one of my favorite places to be!
