Introducing Wheelock Connect!
January 23, 2017
Wheelock has partnered with QuadWrangle—a Boston-based social media company—to release Wheelock Connect, a smartphone app designed especially for the Wheelock community. Users simply download the app from the App Store or Google Play, and then sign in through LinkedIn, Facebook, or Google+.
Because users sign into Wheelock Connect via social media, the tool learns your interests, allowing it to personalize the information users receive, including Wheelock College news stories, events, and programs that are most relevant.
Benefits for Wheelock Alums
With features like ClassRing and Classnotes, which focus on networking and building college communities, the app will allow alumni to connect with one another in innovative and exciting ways. Registered alumni know if other registered alumni are nearby, creating the opportunity for them to come together. Alumni can also informally network with the Wheelock College community.
Thanks to a grant from the Sylvia Earl Innovation Award, Wheelock will also be partnering with QuadWrangle to create new features focuses on enrollment, parents, and growing our interactions with other communities interested in improving the lives of children and families.
QuadWrangle has launched successful alumni platforms at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Lehigh University, University of Massachusetts-Boston, and Furman University.
