"Aurora has been great! "

What do you like best?

The thing I like best about Aurora is how user friendly it is. I never had much experience with web development before I got into my current job and this program truly caters to that. Very easy to navigate and super clear instructions on posting, updating, etc.

What do you dislike?

The one thing that I dislike about this product is the notion that you cannot undo something once you upload it, at least in my experience.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are updating websites daily so that groups on campus have knowledge of events that are coming up and whether or not their organization is on good terms (requirement wise) with student activities which is crucial to their leadership development.
