  • (first thought – I liked last year’s better when we were at round tables chatting… I feel like we are being presented to and I am not crazy about that… that is pretty much the Day ahead – A good 25 people in the room in rows facing front so how are we supposed to chat? – Boo!)

  • Wishes & Dreams
    • Change the number of beds in a room 
    • Management of occupancy – make sure that we didn’t Miss anyone including expanded space – occupancy totals
    • More self-service – more available online – Ellucian is making that a priority but don’t know what the plan will be – not like web advisor – pretty and nicer views, etc.  Move user-friendly and visual.
