The Journal of Technology in Student Affairs

Spring 2003 Edition

2nd Annual Virtual Case Study Competition

This year marked our 2nd Annual Virtual Case Study Competition for Masters level students in student personnel administration, counseling or higher education administration graduate programs.

Almost double the number of teams from last year (a total of 29) entered this year's competition. They were given a technology-oriented scenario with the charge of critiquing a fictional Student Life web site with the goal of reviewing and proposing changes to the pages. Click here to read full scenario...

We have dedicated the Spring 2003 edition of our e-journal to the final presentations of all participating teams. Instructions on how to view the team projects are listed below.

Next year's Virtual Case Study Competition will take place in February 2004. Registration information will be posted on our Web site in Fall 2004. For general information about the 2003 Virtual Case Study Competition, you can visit our VCS section at
