Emergency scenarios aside, communicating with students in general is a challenge throughout the higher-education community. As any parent of a college student will tell you, the most effective way to communicate with students isn’t telephone, “snail mail”, or even e-mail. Most students spend a large portion of their day engaged in conversations via text message, and will only read their e-mail occasionally.
With CampusNotice®, your school’s administrators will be able to communicate directly with targeted sub-sets of your network database - students, staff, faculty, parents, and even prospective students - to deliver notices of upcoming events, administrative reminders, or up-to-the minute information about campus activities. The added feature of Return Text Confirmation keeps institutional staff aware of any students who unsubscribe or reply to network messages, allowing for quick identification of potential retention issues.
CampusNotice can also be highly effective in maintaining contact with student-applicants prior to the start of classes, which can have a positive impact on new student enrollment.
“Our research indicates that used correctly, SMS text communication with prospective students, between accepted application and the start of classes, can result in a five to ten percentage point increase in “sit rate”. SMS text is also a great tool to remind prospective students about orientation events and other pre-enrollment activities."
