Student Contact Center Becomes a Success

A crew of students has turned the new GCU Student Contact Center into a blessing for campus job seekers as well as potential University students. The center is earning rave reviews on campus. According to Mike Rasmussen, who is currently pulling double duty as an enrollment manager in the business division and as the interim Student Contact Center manager, all the credit goes to his team of students. Student Contact Center workers contact potential students who have asked for more information about the University and its degree programs. Rasmussen says his team members often catch people on the phone before they have even left gcu.edu. The team calls to make sure potential students are directed to the counselor who will best meet their needs. This includes understanding if students need to be directed to military or tribal counselors, or simply to the correct degree program. Rasmussen encourages his team to mention that they are students on campus. They are able to develop quick rapport with people and, according to Rasmussen, have done an outstanding job of making potential students feel a connection to campus.

GCU Library Announces Redesigned Website

June 01, 2010 / by / 1 Comment

The library has redesigned its website.  The new site includes all of the links from the original site organized into columns on the front page.  New features to the site include a link to chat with a librarian and a Twitter feed right on the home page. Existing links have been reorganized into columns, for easier location and use: In the Research column, you will see a link to “Find Books & More,” which leads to the library’s catalog that stores all of its books, electronic books and multimedia.  Also available are links to “Find Journal Articles,” an alphabetical listing of all of the library’s databases, and to “Subject Guides,” which are databases and resources organized by subject. In the Library Services column, you will find a link to an “InterLibrary Loan (ILL)” form, a service that allows the library to request from other libraries resources to which we do not have access.  You will see a “Comments and Suggestions” link, where you can make comments or suggestions.  The “Library News and Events” link leads to the GCU Blogs page, where all library news, updates and announcements will be made.  The “Policies” link provides an overview of the library’s Policies […]
