Inspire students and visitors

Alumni Associations are all about keeping people connected to each other and their school. So, how does a 150 year-old medical school in Halifax knit together over 7,000 members scattered all over the world?

By making a connection right at the beginning—when the student first walks into the school. The connection is in the form of a commemorative wall and interactive kiosk positioned along a highly travelled hallway. The entire wall is like one giant invitation to reach out and touch history. One tap of the screen and the student enters the rich story of one of the oldest medical schools in the nation. Within seconds, past teachers and graduates can be located—and the school’s proud traditions revealed.

Form:Media were pleased to play a part in this wonderful project, serving as the prime contractor for design, construction supervision, and content management. Engagement is the kiosk’s ultimate goal; helping enhance and encourage connections with alumni for ongoing support and offering opportunities to share memories as well as inspire new students to remain connected to the school.
