Students at Cal Poly run into two main problems involving clubs: efficiency of communication and the ability to find clubs that interest them. Currently, members of clubs communicate in four main ways: Facebook, GroupMe, text message, and email. As a result, it is fairly easy for things to become disorganized from all the different types of communication. Group members are forced to check multiple communication outlets just to stay updated, wasting their time. In addition, finding clubs at Cal Poly is not easy. The annual club fair helps interested students to some degree, but with hundreds of clubs on campus most go undiscovered. The ASI website lists all of these clubs, but most students do not have the time to read the description of every single club description provided. [2] College Cloud intends to solve these problems by providing a one-stop-shop for members of clubs to communicate with one another while also providing students the ability to search for clubs they are interested in. College Cloud will also provide a recommendation engine for users in the future, basing these recommendations off of students' majors and interests.
