Recruiting, admitting and retaining students has never been so competitive. How do you stand out above the rest?
Conversational text messaging is one strategic answer. After all, your students are digital natives. When you engage and converse with them the way they want, you’ll get and keep their attention.
Once you have their attention, you’ll keep it, and them. From enrollment all the way through their alumni support.
