Provide Outstanding Customer Service, Foster Campus Affinity & Increase Retention Efforts
Successfully Position Your Orientation Events and Prepare Your Leaders.
Orientation leaders are the first substantial contact that students and their families have with your institution. The impact of COVID-19 on orientation programs amplifies the need to have well-trained orientation leaders who provide an outstanding customer service experience that affirms every student’s and family’s decision that they have selected the right institution.
Orientation leaders are high profile, critical mentors that must be well trained to manage difficult situations, foster campus affinity, and one of the first steps in helping to ensure students remain at your institution.
Join our expert presenter as she shares why orientation events are such a critical touchpoint for new students and their families, the impact it has on your strategic enrollment management plan, and the effort that goes into creating a highly trained and customer service-orientated orientation leader staff.
A great customer service experience delivered by your orientation leaders serves as an essential connection point to the rest of the campus community, improves early retention rates and increases student satisfaction overall.
