The 2016 Student Tech Fair was held Friday, November 4. Tech Fair is the single largest annual outreach event conducted by UFIT. Here’s a look at some event statistics:

15: Number of IT units participating
2,450: Number of reported student interactions
177: Number of students completing the 2016 Tech Fair survey

Completion of the five-question Tech Fair survey was required in order to be eligible for one of two fabulous raffle prizes. (Winners have already been notified and collected their prizes.) Full survey results are available here. Some of the survey findings include:

  • The majority of attendees learned about Tech Fair through campus signage (54.24%), with social media the second most impactful communications tool (27.12%).
  • When asked if they learned about any campus tech services that they were previously unfamiliar with, 90.40% of survey respondents said YES, they learned about at least one service previous unknown to them.

Anyone with questions about Tech Fair or suggestions for how to improve next year’s event may write to it-comm@ufl.edu.
