Dr. Jeffrey Docking

Frequently Asked Questions

Abuzz was first established as a student-only platform to help students take advantage of their campus, evolving to now pair unique student-centric features like group chats and a buy-and-sell marketplace with administrative tools like dynamic event alerts, resource notificaitons, and new-student orientation features to streamline campus communication and offer a student-friendly platform they will appreciate and utilize without being begged to adopt it. Our Engagement Team goes hand-in-hand with the Abuzz platform, offering college administrators a dedicated and collaborative team to serve as an extension to Student Life and Admissions departments, helping to activate new campus events, drive community-building promotions, and engage incoming students with their college and peers before they’ve even stepped foot on campus. Unlike more traditional engagement and communication platforms, Abuzz is a student app, an administrative life savor, and dedicated team of collaborators all bundled in one.

Yes, administrators are able to create both public and private groups. Abuzz Groups allow consolidated communication to student segments like class years, majors, and clubs, but can also serve as collections of resources from departments and services like  tutoring, career development, networking sessions and more. Information and resources in Public Groups are accessible to all students across campus, while Private Groups offer spaces to consolitate sensitive or community-specific information. Abuzz groups simplify the various interfaces and platforms that students and administrators rely on to communicate.

Yes, the web Admin Dashboard offers various roles to easily invite campus staff or administrators with additional options to elevate student content liaisons to bridge the student-to-administrator communication gap without compromising account security or privacy.

Yes, Abuzz offers several methods for notifying students whether for general or urgent alerts. Abuzz provides ways to deliver community-specific notificaitons to specific segments of the student body such as class years, individual majors, clubs, or other custom groupings. The app also accommodates the need for emergency or urgent alerts to the entire campus.

We offer several partnership levels to allow colleges and universities a spectrum from autonomous platform management to dedicated and hands-on collaboration on proven engagement promotions, community building, and student life event implementation. Our team will assist with implementing and integrating the Abuzz app, and even offer training for student assistants to provide content assistance and moderation. Our team works to help colleges meet and exceed their engagement goals, whether through passively interjecting valuable student content like virtual events and promotions or actively collaborating on campus events, community building, and incoming student engagement.

Abuzz is currently available in the Apple, Google, and Android App stores in the US and in Canada. International students that activate a new SIM card upon arrival for the semester are able to access the platform.

Our team is always available to tend to questions and confusions, or provide tutorials on using the Abuzz app and/or Admin Dashboard. We can be reached through the Live Chat on our website or by email at Info@campusabuzz.com.

Student reception and adoption of Abuzz has neen overwhelmingly positive as both a slick, student-friendly app and an informative campus tool to rely on. The robust Abuzz Groups functionality relieves students from keeping up with numerous platforms and helps moderinze the way they receive information. Abuzz merges social connectivity with campus communication, meaning incoming students can utilize a single platform to receieve incoming-student information and alerts while also engaging with peers and seeking roommates.

Abuzz is a closed, campus-community platform ONLY, meaning invidiauls without university credentials are effectively prevented from accessing the Abuzz app or communicating with students. We do not share student information or grant in-app access to third parties.
