Create a First Impression that Distinguishes Your Institution From the Rest

Pivoting and responding to the relevant needs and wants of prospective students is a necessity for admissions staff members. Particularly with open houses, we have seen a shift in the commitment to actually attend an event, even after registering to participate. The lack of attendance at these open houses puts direct stress on your funnel. As we are seeing in the industry, many students do not visit a school unless they have been accepted. This mindset must be taken into consideration as you work to cultivate registrations and get students to attend. 

Join us on July 9, 2024 when our presenter will engage in a lively discussion and explore strategies for improving: 

  • Data analytics
  • Marketing
  • What makes your campus unique
  • Improving on-campus partnerships
  • Creating a first-class customer service experience 
  • Surveying to determine impact

Explore goals and modalities, evaluate whether or not you are delivering engaging content and identify pain points in your event experience that you can improve. Ensure you are reaching your target audience and that you are delivering the message you want attendees to walk away with – maintain relevance to where you are in the enrollment funnel and create space for families and their needs. Create a lasting first impression that will impact the current class, as well as your ability to recruit the next class.
