Campus Spotlight: University of North Georgia Dahlonega
Prior to implementing OrgSync, the University of North Georgia Dahlonega Campus had 113 student groups. All of the paperwork for new organizations or renewals was being processed by one person, Jemima Fortune, Coordinator of Student Leadership & Commuter Services. “We were doing everything the ancient way,” she said. All of the club renewals were being processed manually on an Excel worksheet, and Jemima was solely responsible for typing in each individual field.
Ultimately, the University needed a platform that could help streamline that process and act as a centralized location where students could find more information about any group on campus. Student groups were operating an older, outdated website that frustrated users. “I would say OrgSync has helped cut down the time to manage that process by more than 50%,” she said. Since it’s initial rollout in 2011, OrgSync has been expanded across all three University of North Georgia campuses and is being utilized by over 250 departments and organizations.
- Institution Type: Public, four-year institution
- Full-Time Enrollment: Approximately 6,100 students

“I believe in the product...But, it’s not even about the product for me. It’s about the people behind the product, the vision behind the product, and the customer service behind the product. There’s always somebody there to answer my questions.”
Jemima hopes to further OrgSync on campus by integrating it into their elections process. She hopes to utilize the platform for everything from SGA elections and homecoming elections to campus-wide awards.
OrgSync is flexible and can be configured to mirror the existing framework of your campus.
