Harvey Mudd College’s Alumni Weekend 2010 took place Friday, April 30 to Sunday, May 2, 2010. The event was a big success for the College, and many departments worked closely together to make it a success.
CIS provided technical support, equipment, and audio / visual coverage of events.
Months before Alumni Weekend 2010, CIS worked closely with the Office of College Advancement to create a dynamic and easy-to-use registration page on FormStack. The form allowed attendees to select which events they wanted to attend and indicate how many guests were attending. The form would then inform the attendee of the total cost of attending and even offered the option of paying by credit card on the spot. This year, President Maria Klawe offered a 50% discount to the class years 2009 to 2005. The form dynamically applied the discount when the attendee selected the right class year.
CIS provided several 24” iMacs and numerous laptops to allow attendees to fill out the Impact Survey or surf the web in the Hospitality area. We worked closely with several faculty presenters, including Bob Borrelli where we provided the equipment and technical support for his talk on Differential Equations.
In Rachel Mayeri’s outdoor presentation on Media Studies, a large inflatable screen was rented and CIS acquired a 12,000 lumen projector to go with it.
CIS helped set up the projectors for the student presentations and faculty lectures. We also sat in on these presentations to make sure the presentation went smoothly.
Many events were video recorded by CIS, and the video is being processed now.
CIS’ Chris Marble, who is a HMC alum from ’78, gave a tour of academic computing at Harvey Mudd. He described what computing resources can be found, how they are accessed, and how students make use of them.
