"Experience the Advantage Orientation®"

We're privileged to work with orientation professionals in higher education from across the country and want to share their experiences with you. In this video montage, you’ll hear from Sonoma State University, Florida International University, Howard University and Colorado State University.

Louisiana State University

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

"My experience with Advantage Design Group was top notch. We gave them a very aggressive timeline and I believe the system we designed was very complex. I'm more than happy with the final product. They exceeded my expectations and I believe that of the University as well."

Heather Herman

Executive Director, Communications

Sonoma State University

Roanoke Park, CA

"They have other clients but you wouldn’t know it because they make you feel so special. Absolutely the best thing I have done as an orientation coordinator so far."

After researching several companies, Sonoma State University chose Advantage Design Group and was thrilled with their decision. They didn’t know what to expect when developing a new student online orientation and Advantage Design Group was informative, organized and ensured the entire process, from technical issues to videography, went smoothly. They brought a comfort level to the team that was unsurpassed.

Florida International University

Miami, FL

"The look and feel of our orientation was very important to us and we were really impressed by Advantage Design Group."

Florida International University had to accommodate their growing population of 54,000 students, including 8,000 transfer students each year. As the 4th largest university in the country, they needed to serve transfer students more efficiently since there was not enough time, staff or advisors to serve them all. So building an online orientation became a valuable resource for them, and Advantage Design Group went above and beyond as their conduit to the technology, logistics, and custom branded design of the program.

Howard University

Washington, DC

"The team has always been attentive to our details, our traditions and our history. It has been a very rewarding experience."

Howard University was in the process of revamping their new student orientation overall. They needed to bring a new fresh perspective that was modern and met students where they are technologically – where they have been trained to be. Charles Prince, Director of Student Success and Transition, talks about the importance of finding the right external partners and how Advantage Design Group helped them to provide the modernization they needed as well as keeping their school history in-sync with their message.

Denver, CO

"Advantage Design Group listened to our needs ... they have made our vision a reality."

Colorado State University was accomplishing online orientation as a course taken through Blackboard. It lacked the engaging aspects they wanted and the ability to provide assessment data, so they sought out Advantage Design Group to help. They found Advantage Design Group through NODA and was drawn in by their designs and organization. They appreciated Advantage Design Group’s listening to their needs, data access, and recommending specific techniques on how to interact with students. As far as competitors go …CSU says it wasn’t a hard decision to choose Advantage Design Group!

"In a world where companies and individuals promise much, but deliver little, Advantage Design Group truly stands out! ADG met all of my expectations regarding design quality, brand customization, usability, and timeframe for completion. On top of that, they are friendly, professional, responsive and just plain nice to work with. Their product is also very affordable, especially when you consider the high level of quality and service that they provide compared to their competitors."

"I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for working with us during the video shoot for our online orientation. You guys were nothing short of outstanding! Your professionalism, thoughtfulness and flexibility were all very much appreciated! You have received numerous compliments from our students and staff about how great it was to work with you! You have a knack for making folks feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera!"

"We would just like to thank the ADG team assigned to our project. Again, they've been helpful and respectful at every turn. It's been a pleasure to work with an organization that delivers on their promises and exceeds expectations."

Jane Smith

Director Enrollment Services

College of DuPage

Like so many schools that operate in the open admission model, we were challenged to engage with thousands of applicants each term. We’d tried personal outreach and on-campus events and still struggled to make an impact with enough students to sustain their commitment through registration. There’s simply more of them than there are of us! Not only does our Advantage Orientation Platform help us reach more new and prospective students, we don’t have to sacrifice a personal approach. We chose to work with Advantage Design Group because of the quality of their product and their work does not disappoint. From design to writing to our on-campus video shoot – every detail was anticipated and completed with care and creativity. Working with Advantage Design Group is a great experience.

"...we can reach more students without sacrificing a personal approach."

Dr. Stacy Mentzer

Institutional Effectiveness Executive Director

Iowa Central Community College

"I would like to take a moment to say how amazing your video team was while they were on campus for the past three days. With rotating of our President’s schedule, to switching locations because of on-campus summer construction, to sprinklers that were causing some weird background noise, we could not have asked for a better team to represent Advantage Design. They were creative, professional, patient, kind and encouraging towards our talent who may have been more on the camera shy side (myself)"

Jennie M. Erdle

Director of Student Life

Finger Lakes Community College

"Their talented staff of project managers, web designers, and programmers worked tirelessly to help us create an orientation that went above and beyond our expectations. They always came from a place of YES!"

Rachel Veretto

Program Coordinator First Year Experience

Aims Community College

Just a quick note to say thank you for sending us such a fantastic crew. Bobby and Dustin are incredibly skilled professionals. Even more so, they are great people. They made us feel comfortable throughout the process, were patient when we worked through the inevitable bumps, and provided creativity, energy and inspiration when needed. It was also cool to have the grandson of an alumna be part of this project. Dustin shared that his grandmother graduated from the ‘Ville in 1929. During a short break, I was able to find a copy of the 1929 Touchstone Yearbook online and showed Dustin his grandmother’s yearbook entry. What a great experience!

"They understood the feel we were looking for and worked well with the talent."
