ExperienceBU helps you manage your club and is a great way to keep all your information in one spot. And ExperienceBU makes leadership turnover and other transitions a breeze. Take advantage of all features and tools to help your club be successful.
ROSTER – The roster is where you can keep track of all your current members and accept new requests to join your club. Use the positions feature to customize your roster with appropriate titles for your officers, captains, leaders, committees, etc. and decide what level of access each position should have to your site. Through your roster, you can also message some or all your membership easily!
ABOUT – Let students know who you are! Tell them what your organization is about, where they find you and how they can contact you. Add in your social media links so that students can easily connect with you across multiple platforms. Don’t forget a cool profile picture too – a club logo works well!
EVENTS – Let club members, students and the campus know what you are doing and how they can get involved! All events must be posted in ExperienceBU in order to promote on campus and risk manage your event. ExperienceBU makes it easy – simply create your event and the system will walk you through the risk management process step-by-step!
NEWS – Create news articles to circulate important information to your group members, the campus, or anyone who visits ExperienceBU. News will appear on the ExperienceBU homepage (if public) and on your organization homepage. Be sure to include a good picture so that you get noticed!
GALLERY –Show off ALL your hard work! Post pictures from your events, member pictures, or even past flyers or marketing, logos, graphics for next year’s executive. Simply create an album and start uploading.
DOCUMENTS – Get all your important documents in one place! Upload any word documents, PDFs, PowerPoints, pictures that you would want shared with the members or officers of your group or the public – meeting minutes, budget reports, forms, training materials…whatever you want! It is also another great way to ensure next year’s team has everything they need to succeed!
FORMS – This module is a full featured forms builder – create application forms, sign-up lists, budgets or event surveys to distribute to members of your club or to the campus.
ELECTIONS – Use the elections section to run your executive elections online! Candidates can even add pictures and bios, and voting is still anonymous. Hosting a movie night and what to decide which movie to watch? Use the elections to create a poll!
