Washington State University Named OrgSync Campus of the Year
Dallas, TX (August 1, 2014) - Washington State University (“WSU”) recently received the inaugural OrgSync Campus of the Year Award. This award recognizes an outstanding campus partner that has demonstrated how they are maximizing the benefits of the platform on campus through examples, anecdotes, and quantifiable measures.

They utilize the platform to help students gather opinions from their peers, keep student organizations on track and organized, and provide students with a way to manage their own activities.

"Their staff has done such a great job of marketing the , offering ongoing trainings for student leaders, and utilizing they system to its fullest potential."
Branded CougSync at WSU, the OrgSync platform helps students organize events for student groups, Greek houses and sport clubs; search for and keep track of community service opportunities; and connect with campus departments.
"We have worked very hard to integrate our campus community into the OrgSync community," said Berto Cerrillo, Assistant Director of Student Involvement. "We are ambassadors of OrgSync and we continue to show the variety of ways it can be used at institutions across the nation."
OrgSync has been fully adopted on all five WSU branch campuses, including the WSU Global Campus for online students. Students are continually encouraged to use OrgSync to access both campus and community engagement opportunities.
