Originally, Wufoo was utilized within the context of Leadership Development and Student Activities at Ursinus College to help students register their student organizations on campus, submit budget information, propose programming ideas, etc. Wufoo allowed for a quick and intuitive information student submission and I was able to extract submitted information for analysis purposes. Over time, I could see how the requested budget of an organization has increased or decreased and why (maybe they are holding more events off campus now and need additional transportation funds). I also had all information about organization presidents, vice-presidents, treasurers, and so forth in one comprehensive file. I liked that I was able to log into Wufoo and browse survey entries on their website for updated information in real time so I took this to other offices.
Now, Wufoo is used across the entire campus to help alumni register for events, new student orientation, and other endeavors in higher education. Additionally, students and faculty are able to submit requests for AV equipment for their events ("I would like two microphones and a speaker at this building for this time period.") The Facilities office uses Wufoo for purposes similar to this one and now better manage requests for meetings and presenters. Overall it has streamlined processes and helped maintain a cohesive, organized campus atmosphere.
