Welcome Center – University of Illinois
From Move-In Day to Commencement, life on a college campus is about people: students, faculty, friends, fans, and parents. BPI captures the anticipation, excitement, challenges, and camaraderie of university life in “Education is Not Filling a Pail, but Lighting a Fire,” a documentary film that celebrates the 150th anniversary of the University of Illinois.
Working in collaboration with RhodesWorks Design the Welcome Center has 23 multimedia exhibits including 14 Discovery Boxes that allow current and prospective students, alumni, and visitors to explore the hundreds of programs and offerings at the university. BPI produced nearly 80 video segments for these interactives. BPI developed a Trailhead Interactive Map which allows guests to explore up to 250 campus buildings and that provides directions on getting to each building from the Alumni Center. And students and alumni can share their own experiences as they record stories in the Memory Space Story Booth.
All interactive programs are backed by a custom CMS developed by BPI that allows the University to update content, graphics, and videos.
