Texas Christian University is working with fraternity and sorority organizations and university police to update its procedures regarding off-campus social events. At the heart of the new procedures is OrgSync, a software program that creates an online campus community that helps an institution connect and engage with its students.
OrgSync is designed to improve information sharing, minimize paper usage, track co-curricular involvement and generate reports on all data collected. Beginning this semester, all Greek chapters at TCU will handle their social event operations through the software program.
As reported by university newspaper TCU360, Greek organization must submit complete guest lists to OrgSync at least two days prior to events. Additionally, all chapters are expected to purchase mag stripe readers to assist with event check in.
When an organization uploads their guest list to OrgSync, rosters will be reflected in the system, as well as with the mag stripe readers. From there, students swipe their university IDs to determine whether or not they are on the guest list.
When attendees arrive for bus loading, they will be required to swipe-in with their student ID when they board buses to and from off-campus events. TCU Police insist that the new procedures designed to boost student security and safety while attending both on and off-campus events.
