About this webinar
What matters most in college search? It’s the community – the people and experiences that make college so radically life-defining. If you speak with any college student in the country, he/she will likely admit that data cannot accurately represent what matters most in the college experience. However, if you’re looking to find out acceptance rates, student-faculty ratios, and popular majors at colleges of interest, then you’re in luck! There’s no shortage of college search tools helping students and families access this type of data.
If we want to push the industry forward, we need to ask how we can introduce community and “vibe” into the college search conversation. Our answer: turn the college students into storytellers. Empower those real, living college students with the tools to be effective digital storytellers. Who better to tell a college’s story than the students? When actual students film their lives on campus, you get to see the real deal. The authentic experience, unfiltered through a college’s admissions or marketing department.
Join this webinar to learn how CampusReel is using authentic video content to re-imagine the college search process for applicants and counselors globally.
