“Adobe FormsCentral is an all-in-one solution for serving students on our campus. We’ve reduced form and survey creation timelines, accelerated responses, and enabled our staff to focus more on providing better campus life services, so students can get the most out of their collegiate experience.”

Students benefit from online forms

An active, vibrant campus life is central to a great college experience. That’s why the Dean of Students Office (DOSO) at Wayne State University chose Adobe FormsCentral to create, distribute, and collect information for campus activities and events, as well as for student organizations.

The DOSO and its more than 300 student organizations promote involvement in social, spiritual/religious, service, university pride, leadership events, and other activities and programs. Staff and students use Adobe FormsCentral to collect information for retreats, orders, applications, and registrations, as well as assessment. The university student government also uses Adobe FormsCentral in its election process every spring.

Before moving to the Adobe solution, each online form was created manually by a staff member. With Adobe FormsCentral, the DOSO staff creates a variety of easily accessible, interactive forms that dramatically reduce the time it takes to collect student surveys, event registrations, and other information related to daily campus life activities. By implementing Adobe FormsCentral, the form creation and data utilization processes are easier and quicker

Improving the collegiate experience

“Adobe FormsCentral is an intuitive solution that enables anyone in our office—including part‐time student employees—to rapidly create important forms and distribute them to students and campus organizations easily,” says Denise Dejonghe, marketing coordinator at the Dean of Students Office at Wayne State

Adobe FormsCentral makes it easier for the Dean of Students Office to communicate and coordinate with Wayne State’s nearly 32,000 students and student organizations. The DOSO provides online forms that are available to students anytime, rather than requiring them to visit the office during standard hours. “Using Adobe FormsCentral we embedded approximately 25 standardized digital form templates directly into our website, enabling students and organization leaders to access and distribute them any time or day of the week,” Dejonghe says.

Forms completed with the Adobe solution are easily tracked and analyzed. The DOSO can use the Adobe FormsCentral results table to instantly sort and filter responses, track trends, and analyze and share information with colleagues and student leaders. “Adobe FormsCentral is an all‐in‐one solution for serving students on our campus,” Dejonghe says. “We’ve reduced form and survey creation timelines, accelerated responses, and enabled our staff to focus more on providing better campus life services, so students can get the most out of their collegiate experience.
