The main objective of GSU alumni portal web application is to allow old and new students of a university to communicate with each other. The application allows students to register and then search the data based on different criteria. Also it has the benefit of having a centralized database and up to date information. A user can easily obtain information about other registered users. This application is deployed using Cloud computing (Microsoft Azure) and nothing is managed locally. The administrator is responsible for maintaining information of students. When a student submits the registration form, administrator will complete the verification process and, if successful, the student details are added into the database. The administrator maintains the passwords of Event Manager and that of himself. Event Manager Module maintains the information about various events organized by the university.
