Mobile-first event website

Columbia College Chicago has two undergraduate admissions open houses every year. The crazy all-day affairs for over 8,000 guests have a printed program with a complex matrix of happenings for a complex day. I built a web app that lists every event, and uses localStorage to save events to your itinerary. I also plotted every venue in a KML file, and used the Google Maps API to get user location and add it to the map.

Dorm tours were always a big, complicated deal, so I used Occipital’s 360 Panorama app to create and embed housing tours in the app. With some excellent work from Brian West, we’ve since adapted the platform to other admissions events.
