Looking at College Enrollment and How to Increase It

 Higher education has never been more important, with many people looking to enhance their skills and achieve more in life. With so many options available, including part-time programs and online courses, there are many ways for students to return to school in a way that fits with their lifestyle and career dreams. For college administrators, how can you get students enrolling at your campus, rather than a different one? Let’s look at what’s attractive to students.

Collaborate with a Marketing Professional

If you’re busy enough without taking on the school’s marketing aspects, consider hiring a marketing professional to boost student recruitment. Choose a forward-thinking team like to improve freshman enrollment rates through a range of innovative methods, including video campaigns.

Higher ed marketing isn’t something you can master overnight, so why leave enrollment levels to chance or risk tarnishing the school’s reputation by sending the wrong message online? Instead, go with the experts who understand the field; they measure the related data to get you the desired boost in student enrollment.

Get on Social Media

A great way for colleges to connect with potential students is on social media. There are many platforms to choose from, including Facebook and YouTube. Start conversations, pose questions, and get your campus known to those who might apply now or in the future to your courses.

Besides providing updates on what your college has to offer, you can also engage in conversations with potential pupils. Doing so can increase the engagement rate you’re getting and boost enrollment this year. Be sure to answer questions they ask of you, whether it’s about courses or the campus. 

Involve Parents

While this one might surprise you, many young adults want to involve at least one of their parents in their search for the best college. Parents can support their son or daughter in choosing colleges and assist them as needed, but it’s crucial that they do not make decisions for their kids.

Showcase Successes

Does your college have alumni who have gone onto impressive jobs or made a difference in the community? If so, spotlight these success stories on your website. 

Doing so can help those interested in your college to see what they can achieve by going there. The successful graduates are real stories that showcase how well your campus provides the education to excel in different careers after graduation.

On a related note, ask current students for photos of them studying or interacting and get quotes from them about their experience at your school. Find out what they love and broadcast it on your website, as well as on social media. You can even dedicate a specific part of your website to showcasing previous or admitted pupils.

Rather than telling people how great your college is, why not let the students speak for you? The message will be significantly more powerful.

Conclusions on Enrolling Students

Enrolling students can be tough, but it’s easier when you collaborate with a marketing expert and use smart strategies to improve admission rates. By understanding what activities work the best for your campus, you can attract your best-fit students.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
