Last month, more than 1,000 educators descended upon beautiful Marco Island, Florida, for the 2019 edition of Hobsons Summer Institute (HSI). Individuals’ goals for attending the conference were varied but were led by the opportunity to network with other professionals from across the country, learn best practices in expert-led sessions, and stay up to date on the latest education technology trends. Here are five of our big takeaways from the conference:
5,114,013 students are enrolled in 2-year institutions across the United States in Spring 2019 according to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. The impact that community colleges are having on these students is note-worthy.
The 2018-2019 school year was another year of growth for RepVisits. The number of high schools utilizing the tool grew by 27% to 3,600 schools and the number of appointments scheduled throughout the year grew 36%.
Recruiting college students is complicated, unique, data-driven and a little magical. I’m not going to claim it’s one-size-fits-all or that anyone can predict what high school students are going to end up deciding by May 1. But I am going to tell you why you need to deepen the analysis of your student data for ROI purposes and then tell you how Intersect can do that for you; for free.
As a first-generation student of color, Angel Hammon didn’t have an easy path to college. Now, she’s helping others from similar backgrounds reach their higher education goals.
More than 87% of the college admissions road warriors responding to our recent survey said they recruit both fall and spring, with almost one-quarter reporting that they spend more than 13 weeks on the road in recruitment travel each school year. According to my calendar, that means it’s almost time to hit the road again.
This is the first year Education Advances Awards have been available to Intersect users. You may be wondering what these awards are about, and how you can submit an application for your institution.
We’ve talked to a number of Naviance ActiveMatch customers who said they weren’t doing anything special with the students who opt-in to connecting with their institutions. In some cases, they don’t even import the names of students who have connected with them via ActiveMatch, because “the student is already in our inquiry database.”
As almost everyone involved in the college application process knows, a CEEB code (short for College Entrance Examination Board) is a unique code assigned to high schools and colleges to ensure that test scores, transcripts and other application documents are submitted to the right institutions. A CEEB code identifies the institution the student comes from as well as where they are going.
College admissions may be a cyclical profession, but it’s never a boring one. There is a certain comfort in the progression of the recruitment cycle – fall’s campus events and college fairs, winter’s focus on and admission decisions, and the weeks of individual outreach and campus events each spring to obtain the best yield and meet enrollment goals.
