What our member campuses are saying about CollegiateLink…

“As Vice President of Finance for the Undergraduate Student Government, I and my committee are responsible for the allocating and disbursing of funds to approximately 150 student organizations. Before CollegiateLink our process used Microsoft Excel and paper forms and was rather time intensive. The Vice President is expected to run a funding meeting where the budgets of all the organizations for the next semester are allocated. The amount of time that the Vice President of Finance was expected to contribute on that weekend was approximately thirty hours. We just completed our first semester of using the financial system in CollegiateLink and the time commitment for that weekend has already dropped more than fifty percent.”

Get in the Know

CollegiateLink’s virtual flyer board highlights upcoming events so you can pick out interesting activities to attend. There is also a campus-wide event calendar and a campus news page that show you who’s talking about what, the latest announcements, and other organization activity details.

Get Involved

A searchable organization directory lets you browse and sort through all the activities you can join. If you want to save time, you can also use CollegiateLink’s recommendation tool which suggests organizations and events for you based on your personal interests.

Get Organized

CollegiateLink puts all your activities in one place so you can easily manage memberships, interests, service hours, and more. You can customize your profile information and control privacy and notifications settings all from one place.

Showcase Your Achievements

With the click of a button you can produce a co-curricular transcript which serves as a printable record of your participation in activities and events. The transcript is a great way to provide additional evidence of your involvements and achievements when applying for honors, awards, internships, graduate schools, or even jobs.

Profiles and Social Media

Advertising and promoting your group is a great way to get new members. Your organization will automatically get a website with a unique URL that can be customized without any knowledge of HTML. You can also edit the content directly from the site and also integrate your social media presence on Facebook or Twitter. As an organization leader you can grant the ability to edit site content to other officers or club members.

Roster Management

Typing up membership sign-up sheets is a thing of the past! Invite new students to join your organization online and promote existing members into officer positions. CollegiateLink’s roster toosl will help you search for contact information, change membership security access, and send out e-mails or text messages (SMS) to individual members or the entire group.

Officer Elections

Tired of paper ballots? Set up customized elections with candidate bios and photos and then export your voting results to see the winners. Elections can be restricted to specific members or open to your entire organization. Ballots can include a variety of question types including single or multiple-choice, ranking, and write-ins.

Document Storage

Time to pass on the torch for your group? Maintain an archival record of your organization’s activities and pass down files from year to year. Online record-keeping can help you organize anything from weekly meeting minutes to event photo albums. You’ll be able to control security access too, in order to decide whether you want your files restricted to the organization or open to the world to view through your group’s website.

Organization Approval

If your student government is responsible for approving organizations on campus, you can set up customized registration request forms for new clubs and activities to be created or for existing groups to renew their status for the upcoming academic year.

Activities Fee Allocation

If your student government is responsible for allocating activities fee money to organizations you can use CollegiateLink’s financial tools to give each group an account from which they can request funding or payments. Organization leaders can see their balance in real-time and their accounts may be tied to university financial systems for reporting, reconciliation, or check-cutting processes.

Organization Communication

Need to contact all the members of your group or just a few select officers? CollegiateLink gives you the tools to send messages to other students directly through the system, by e-mails, or even with text messaging!

Service Hour Tracking

Giving back to your campus community is important. With CollegiateLink, you can keep a record of the service hours you’ve individually completed or even track hours for all the members of an entire organization. You can approve the hours your organization members submit and easily report on your group’s service activities when applying for campus service awards.
