Hobart and William Smith Colleges recently won a bronze award for the Reunion Arrival Tracking System used at Reunion 2006 in June. The Accolades Awards competition was sponsored by District II of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.
Entered in the “Creativity on a Shoestring” category, the system used computer screens where alumnae and alumni could sign in and then see who else had arrived. A bank of computer screens was set up in the atrium of the Warren Hunting Smith Library during the weekend.
The awards were recognized at the 2006 District II Conference, Feb. 4-7 in Pittsburgh. The annual Accolades Awards program is designed to highlight institutional accomplishments in print, multi-media, marketing/communications, events and program development.
CASE includes more than 3,300 colleges, universities, and independent elementary and secondary schools in 54 countries. District II includes New York, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Canadian province of Ontario.
The screens are expected to be used again for Reunion 2007, starting Friday, June 1.
