St. Joseph's College Open House: Increasing Student Engagement

Recruiting students to any college campus can be extremely challenging. Especially in this day and age when the lanes for communication vary vastly and a number of messages traveling in these lanes are more than can fit, or that any one person has the mental bandwidth to process. The same challenge presents itself in communicating with the current student body. Disseminating information and communicating to thousands, sometimes tens of thousands, of current students who differ in terms of matriculation levels, interests, and attention spans can seem like mission impossible.

It’s no secret that social media is a preferred method of receiving and sending information amongst student bodies and those aspiring to become students at the collegiate level. Colleges and Universities, some more hesitantly than others, have come to the realization that using social media as one of the main tools for communicating with current students, alumni, and prospective students is an absolute necessity.
