Families of college-bound students are becoming savvy shoppers. Over the last few years there has a lot of emphasis placed on the college admissions process. Students are not hedging their bets on one dream school. They understand the need to select a school based on academics, location, social activities, and cost. As students become more selective, many colleges are now using social media to market to potential students. Institutions understand the benefits of communicating with potential students in the student’s natural mode of communication.
There are many benefits to current students connecting online to the businesses and industries that they are interested in. The more tech savvy institutions also understand that social media is a great tool to keep current students engaged and informed.
