The Challenge

Advisors at Sonoma State University send emails for department news, course offerings, etc. Unfortunately, many of their students said they receive too many emails from too many different departments. Advisors would also plaster flyers around campus and wait for students to come into the office, but these methods are known to be unreliable. So, the advisors needed a new way to ensure students were receiving important messages.

“I’ve received nothing but positive feedback from the students, and I plan to share this tool with other institutions so they can also better reach their current students.” Vanessa Bascherini, M.S., Academic Advisor at Sonoma State University
