BoilerConnect

BoilerConnect will have most of the student organizations and service learning groups registered. It also allows organizations from the community to register as user, search for student organizations/service learning groups at Purdue, and post jobs(volunteering works)


GatherUp: Website and Mobile App

The IMS GatherUp team is designing and implementing a website and mobile app to aid the International Programs Office in keeping track of attendance at campus wide events.
The mobile app, designed for both Android and IOS platforms, allows for volunteers to quickly and easily swipe a students ID or input an attendee's information. This information is compiled and uploaded to the website where it can be downloaded, viewed, and edited by the IP Office.
On the website, the IP Office is able to create events that are going to be held on campus which is sorted into a list. These events are then ready to recieve information from the mobile app. When an event has passed and information for it has been uploaded, it can be easily downloaded and viewed for any relevant information and edited. The Office can then upload any changes and the information is now archived with its event.




FairHope

Fair Hope Children's Ministry is a social service organization situated at Danville, Illinois. The organization distributes clothing to the needy, referred to them by local social workers, case workers, ministers, and the like. In 2013, they served almost 1700 children and 600 parents. The Fair Hope projects aims to create an online scheduling assistant that will simplify the scheduling process for Fair Hope, and to collect and manage client information efficiently.




EPICKS

The EPICKS team is creating a website that allows students to pick an EPICS team based on their schedule, interests, and major. The website will provide a short description of the team, what one can hope to learn from the team, and a website leading to more information regarding that team. We're calling it EPICS Explorer or E-PICKS.
