Mobile Enabled Student Access & Recruitment

Covid-19 has created new and long lasting challenges for college recruitment. Critical in-person, and face-to-face engagement opportunities are no longer possible. The long lasting and lingering effects of the pandemic will forever change the way you effectively recruit and enroll students.

High school visits, college fairs, on and off-campus visits and events have all been instantly moved to the virtual domain. Video streaming services have quickly become the "go to" solution.  These synchronized virtual events have allowed colleges to augment face-to-face engagement to some extent. Yet, your GenZ student audience lives in an asynchronous world, where they engage and communicate constantly via mobile apps such as Instagram, Tik-Tok, Snap Chat, What's App to name a few. They live in a world of instant connectivity,  at all hours of the day, where they use apps to get their news, do their research, collaborate and education themselves on their college choices.  They are almost exclusively a mobile ONLY population. Shouldn't you be accessing and engaging with them in this fluid asynchronous way?

The Ci mobile app provides fully connected app experience that provides access and connectivity through an app experience designed to engage with today's "digital age" students in the ways that they fully expect.

As an enrollment professional, you need to rely more than ever before on effective virtual experiences to deliver your brand messaging, and allow for instant collaboration, and maintain connectivity. Ci does this and more, allowing your admission reps to build one-on-one relationships, and allowing you to deploy personalized experiences, at scale. The Ci app experience allows you to capture valuable data to best understand student's intentions, interests, and personas. And, easily integrates with current systems and CRM tools.

Ci can transform your student access and recruitment strategy, by bringing the student experience to them through a mobile app experience, and into the palm of their hands, 24/7.
