DormNoise Announces Major Feature Updates for 2010-2011 Academic Year

Bay State College, Bryant & Stratton College and Newbury College sign three-year renewals to experience new features on DormNoise

PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DormNoise, the only interactive collegiate calendar system, announced today that after yearlong trials, three of its customers have signed three-year contract renewals to continue providing DormNoise to their students. Students at Bay State College, Bryant & Stratton College and Newbury College will all have access to brand new DormNoise features including a Facebook application, a Student Rewards Center, as well as a mobile application and text message alerts.

“We are confident in our product and were able to prove our worth to three well respected schools; their renewals speak volumes for what DormNoise can do for student involvement.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled that our customers have renewed with us,” said Jay Rodrigues, founder and CEO of DormNoise. “We are confident in our product and were able to prove our worth to three well respected schools; their renewals speak volumes for what DormNoise can do for student involvement.”

The 2010-2011 academic year brings with it three major upgrades on DormNoise:

  • The newly introduced Facebook application allows students to use DormNoise in its entirety on Facebook. It also allows students to import all of their Facebook friends from school into their DormNoise Contact List for easy event planning.
  • The Student Rewards Center gives students attending schools that use DormNoise an incentive to get more involved on campus. Depending on the number of activities students attend or create, they can qualify for rewards such as gift cards to Amazon.com, Starbucks, McDonalds, iTunes, Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts.
  • DormNoise created a mobile application for Blackberry, iPhone and Android smartphones to keep on-the-go students connected to all of their events and activities. For students without smartphones, DormNoise added text message alerts.

“After seeing a significant increase in student involvement on our campus, renewing with DormNoise for three more years was not even a question,” said Amy Shirley, Dean of Student Affairs of Newbury College. “DormNoise allows college administrators to keep up with our tech-savvy and over-scheduled student population.”

DormNoise offers universities and colleges three different payment plans, either paying per student, allowing corporate sponsorships or a combination of the two plans. Schools paying per student pay about $2 per student while schools allowing corporate sponsorships use the application for free and even have the opportunity to make a profit. Schools can also choose a combination of both plans lowering the cost per student with a few corporate sponsors.
