The American Council on Education (ACE) and Hobsons recently completed the first of three studies to predict how, when, and why community college students transfer to four-year colleges and universities. In this webinar, researchers from ACE's Center for Policy Research and Strategy (CPRS) will discuss the report findings and key predictors of upward transfer for students who enroll in community college directly after high school.
Scheduling visits to high schools can be a time-consuming process for both school counselors and admission counselors. That’s why Erica White, former school counselor and now a Product Manager at Hobsons, created RepVisits in 2015. RepVisits brings high schools and college admission counselors together on one website to schedule appointments and organize college fairs.
We’ve all heard that today’s students prefer text messages to just about any other communication medium. But how do you use text messaging effectively? When should you text? Which topics are ‘text-worthy’? What kind of tone should texts have? And how do you incorporate text messaging into your communication strategy – and, more importantly, into your overall enrollment plan? Learn the answers to these and many other burning questions so you can decide whether text messaging is something you should pursue and how to do it successfully.
This webinar focuses on advice and “lessons learned” in the early stages of implementing the Starfish platform at a community college. As Heather Darrow said, “In the beginning it seemed very abstract – I know it can be hard to conceptualize how Starfish will work. But I figured it out, and others can too. I look forward to helping other schools!”
Hobsons is introducing a new community to help school counselors and college admissions officers network more effectively. We believe that creating close working relationships and simplifying connections between professionals "on both sides of the desk" can be a huge benefit to students. Join us for this webinar to learn more about the Hobsons Counselor Community - what it is, what it means for you and your students, and how you can participate.
As part of the Student Success and Support Program (SSSP) led by the Chancellor’s Office, Los Medanos College began implementing tools from the Starfish Enterprise Success Platform – specifically, early alert and degree planning – in 2015. In this Webinar, you’ll learn about their recipe for implementing student success technologies within a statewide initiative.
In this webinar, you’ll learn what’s new in Naviance for the 2016-17 school year. You’ll also receive a preview of what’s on the horizon.
This webinar will focus on effective implementation strategies, student success and retention outcomes, lessons learned and NECC’s plans for an integrated student experience using Starfish to increase student retention and success.
Join Amy Reitz, Director of Product Management for Matching Solutions, to learn how Hobsons is helping universities move from marketing to matching in the college admission process and building tools to foster better collaboration between high schools and higher education institutions.
Participants of this session will hear a case study of Ramapo’s implementation and execution of Starfish and how intentionality, collaboration, and closing the loop have increased student success. In the process, Ramapo has learned that using Starfish not only allowed us to better connect with our students, but enabled us to better connect with ourselves. We will review specific examples of how student success metrics have improved as a result of Starfish implementation on our campus and also examples of how student-focused offices have leveraged the technology to create ripple effects that extend campus-wide.
