That’s a Wrap! Summing Up the 2015 User Conference

The 2015 CollegeSource User Conference took place June 22-25 at the Hyatt Harbor in Boston, MA. Amazing views of the city skyline made the perfect backdrop for a perfect week. Like always, sessions were well-attended and packed full of information. CollegeSource staff and clients shared their expertise and experiences in more than 60 sessions, which led to thoughtful questions, great conversations, and useful takeaways. We saw a lot of familiar faces, and nearly 100 first-time attendees!

After the conference wraps, we pause to reflect on the feedback we received from attendees. The evaluation surveys collected onsite (or through the mobile app) are the primary way we keep a pulse on what is going right with the conference and ways we can improve. We use those responses and suggestions to help shape the way we organize for the next year. The reviews this year were overwhelmingly positive! We appreciate that you notice how hard we work to ensure things run smoothly and be good hosts. It’s our goal to provide the atmosphere for you to have fun, learn, and connect.

Here are some of the comments we received from attendees:
