IOWA CITY, IOWA Â NOVEMBER 21, 2002 Â This week the College of Saint Benedict and Saint JohnÂs University (CSB/SJU), with the help of Leepfrog Technologies, released an online prospective student portal they have dubbed MySaints. CSB/SJU, two coordinate colleges in Minnesota, teamed up with Leepfrog Technologies to transform their site into a dynamic and informative environment. Today, their new site is building relationships with prospective students across the nation through the medium they use most, the Internet.
MySaints, the customized version of LeepfrogÂs Admissions Portal found at http://www.mysaints.org, transforms the collegeÂs web site into an online recruitment system for admission representatives and a virtual community for prospective students. The system gives prospects a direct line to admission representatives, professors, and other prospective students.
ÂWe wanted a portal that formed a real online community for our prospective students and Leepfrog had the ability to customize a system that suited whatever we wanted.Â said Mary Milbert, Dean of Admission and Financial Aid at CSB/SJU, ÂIt was our goal to make sure that each visitor had an environment where they could get the specific information about our school that they wanted, and all the personal attention that they demanded. And Leepfrog delivered that goal with MySaints.Â
ÂThe people at CSB/SJU had a lot of exciting ideas for their Admissions Portal and a strong vision for what their web site would be. The flexible Admissions Portal architecture was leveraged to make their vision a reality,Â Said Derek Haidle, project director at Leepfrog Technologies, ÂIt's been great working with such a creative, dynamic, and visionary group to take recruiting on the Internet to a new level, including chat and personal message boards for prospects and counselors.Â
LeepfrogÂs Admissions Portal is an online recruitment system. It offers a central interface housing multiple customized applications that a school can use to build relationships, add web site content, and provide prospects with a wealth of information and personalized help.
The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University are partners in liberal arts education, providing students the opportunity to benefit from the distinctions of not one, but two nationally recognized Catholic, Benedictine, residential undergraduate colleges. Together, the colleges challenge students to live balanced lives of learning, work, leadership and service in a coeducational environment.
