Students are more likely to succeed in college when they are connected to their campus community and can tap a network of caring advisors, faculty, and staff who help them persist and earn their degrees. We are proud to partner with more than 240 colleges and universities that are working deliberately and systemically to do just that.

Recently, Hobsons and Penn State University joined forces to ensure that all Penn State students receive informed, personalized advising that sets them on track to complete their education and life goals.

Penn State will use Starfish by Hobsons to identify at-risk students in real time, pinpoint areas of concern, and connect students with valuable services and help to assess which services and interventions will keep them on track. The advising technology will also make it easier to establish important networks of communication across the University, ensuring that students have the same support, even if they change majors.

We’re pleased to support Penn State in this important work.
