Regis University App
A UI and UX design side project/exploration for a university based app. It would expand on the released 2.0 version and adds a more robust experience vital to engaging students and other members of the Regis community.

Beginnings of an App
The ITS department started the original construction of an app, built on Ionic. The primary function allowed registration for classes. The design lacked any real engaging features that made students, faculty and staff want to remain connected.
Because this was side project I had to work on this in moments I could spare from my normal duties. I quickly generated wireframes basing a lot of the design on best practices and assumptions. I learned quite a bit about what the users would need based on insights from staff members who work closely with the students regularly.
Home Page News Feed
The default screen lists available and relevant information in a news feed, pertaining to the activities and happenings around campus. Click into an article to read more and share to social media that could generate more exposure for university.
While in the profile the students could swipe at the top to use a barcode associated with their student ID. This code could be easily scannable at campus cafés, bookstore, library, athletic events and more and give the marketing team more of a sense of the behavior of the student and how to market more appropriately to them.
Find A Service Opportunity
A big characteristic of a Regis student is their desire for social justice and doing good things for all people. I wanted to make it easy for students and the Regis community to get connected with like-minded groups out doing great things.
Students both online and on-campus can access their schedule, see what they've already taken toward their degree, and register for their next courses easily.
