Sports Thread Website
Saritasa announces development for SportsThread.com, the revolutionary website that merges the culture of college athletics through social media. Using Sports Thread, college athletes can communicate the pros and cons of playing at a university, student and campus life, and much more to potential students of their university. The responses from athletes include in-depth, day to day experiences of a collegiate athlete, based on anonymity, so the responses are un-biased.
- LAMP Stack: With 1 integration point for Surveys and Rankings by student athletes.
- SheerID: Implemented to validate that participating students are active college students at universities nationwide.
- Categories of Experience: Student-athletes give their experience and opinion on the four categories of the university; athletic life, academic life, social life, and campus life. They can rank these four categories in order to showcase the full college experience as a student-athlete.
- Rankings: The way student-athletes respond to the surveys results in a composite score, based on the individual sport and the university as a whole. The benefit of this ranking system is it allows for athletes, potential students, coaches and parents to see where their school compares to other national programs.
Sports Thread is changing the way student athletes can evaluate their school in every way. It gives them the chance to tell the real story of what being a student athlete is really like, and in turn, helps potential students select the school that is the best fit for them.
