Get Energized

At Hobsons University, we're really focused on delivering great content that both equips you with the actionable knowledge that you need to do your job better, and the inspiration to return to the office with a new sense of energy.

The practical content provided in the sessions, the inspiration from the keynote speaker, and the opportunities to connect with others all provide attendees with a chance to take new information back with them.

Here’s a few thoughts from last year’s attendees:

“The information was just what I needed to better streamline my offices communication plans to better the flow of students through the departments communication program.”


Hands down one of the best sessions I've attended at ANY conference!! Learned a TON in a fun and engaging presentation.”


“Exceptionally well-written and well-presented session packed full of thoughtful, interesting, and useful information. Excellent.”


Feel Inspired

Hobsons strategically selects the keynote speaker for our attendees who will be engaging, inspiring, and informative. This year we are excited to hear from Freeman A. Hrabowski, President of The University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Here’s what last year’s attendees said about our keynote, Brandon Busteed, Executive Director, Education and Workforce Development, at Gallup.

“Many points in the keynote were spot on with issues being faced today working in admissions and as a parent. Thanks for a great presentation.”


“WOW! Brandon's presentation made the entire trip worth it! So much insight and so many ideas on how I can look at things on my own campus. So many ideas to share with the students I advise on a daily basis. Thank you!!”


“I’ve seen a lot of speakers at a variety of conferences over 10 years and Brian’s by far was the best.”


Forge New Partnerships

Networking is ingrained into the entire Hobsons U experience. Making organic connections with your industry peers is not only great for personal brand building, it is also a great way to forge new partnerships, share best practices, and elevate the presence of your institution.

Opportunities for networking at the conference are everywhere. There will be daily connection breaks, receptions, and more. And don’t forget about the Hobsons Hub, a place to mix and mingle with other participants and Hobsons staff, and connect on social media.

Experience a Change of Scenery

Sometimes a change of scenery offers a new light for solving work challenges. Attending an event like Hobsons U allows you some time out of the office and puts you into a new environment. Use the conference to consider ways to transform how you do your job. For many attendees, Hobsons U is just what they need to return to work with renewed energy and tools to start out the next school year strong.

Enjoy a Great Location

Hobsons selects breathtaking venues to allow attendees time to relax and enjoy the surrounding location once the conference day has concluded. This year, the event takes place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. This resort includes numerous restaurant options and a beach area with 2,700 tons of real sand and a 1.6 million gallon wave pool!
