Are You Listening?

Admitted and prospective students talk about your institution year-round. Understanding what they think and feel by listening to what they're saying is essential to effectively engage with students, address specific issues or questions, or ease the application process.

We're interested in this conversation, too. We dug into admissions conversation and analyzed three years of online conversation about the college admissions process. We're working on data analysis and critical insights that will help you develop specific strategies that target student audiences to appeal to their questions, needs, and interests during the admissions process.

What Students Are Saying

Our research findings can help you build a better understanding of the online conversation and behavior of admissions conversation. We found examples from Reddit and Twitter that demonstrate the types of conversations we analyzed. These examples show there are opportunities to engage students at key stages of their college journey. If you're missing these conversations, you're missing key opportunities that could make the difference between admission and enrollment.
