Hi Theresa,
Does your college use the Absolute Forms Processor? It gathers your data and houses it for you. If you don't have access (it might be a CEHD-only program), MailChimp is pretty great at collecting info. Just make sure to be careful what info you're gathering (preferably just name and email due to privacy issues).

One of our communications staff asked about using a third-party service (MailChimp) to gather contact information for our college. 
We have an email form now that sends the contact information to our departmental email account.

I'm just wondering what other departments are doing to gather contact information.  Do you think there are any problems with using this service?

Thanks. TT
