DASA recently invested in the Guidebook app which allows us to have multiple NC State branded apps under one umbrella. As of now, eleven are live including Orientation, Wolfpack Welcome Week, Fraternity Rush, and Packapalooza among others. It is important we spread the word within our units, with students, and with our social media outlets. These Guides will be the “go to” mobile space for departments and events throughout the year and we’d like as many students as possible to have it before arriving for orientation or on campus for fall semester.
- To download in the Apple AppStore, search for “NC State University Guides”
- To download in GooglePlay, search for “NC State University Guides”
- Or you can visit this link: https://guidebook.com/app/NCStateGuides/ and you can have a link sent to your phone.
Note: When using social media to promote the NC State Guides App, please use the link above and the hashtag #NCState18 for incoming freshmen and #NCStateTransfers to see.
If you are interested in having a Guidebook for your department, the cost is $625 and we’ll be happy to set you up. If you want your access to start building your guide by Tuesday July 8th, we need to hear from you by Thursday July 3rd. All you need to do is contact Leslie Dare.
There will continue to be opportunities to come on board and we will do these in batches. There is a great deal of time required to get payments processed and accessed activated. Any future NC State related Guides must live within this branded app. If you are going to use Guidebook for NC State business purposes, you must use the branded version.
A huge thank you to Leslie Dare, Justin Hammond, and Cameron Hill for making all of this happen in a short turn around time. It is going to make a huge difference as we move into a mobile space for communication.
