Not Like the Old Days

This fall, the college’s new chief information officer, Gayle Barton, put together an “IT Index” that begins to illustrate just how much has changed since Bennison’s days in the Computer Center. Here are some items from the index.

Percentage of applicants to the Class of 2016 who applied online: 99

Number of applicants without an email address: 1 (out of 8,461)

Percentage of the Class of 2016 who are members of their class Facebook page: 79, down from 99 percent four years ago
