Changing the Game in Student Recruitment- the modern day mail box in every prospect's hand.
We have been in the admissions recruitment business for over 40 years, designing, printing and mailing award winning materials for colleges and universities. After the iPhone was launched in 2007, it soon became evident that smartphones would become the most effective way to access and engage with the new "mobile only" GenZ audience. We created the world's only unified mobile app experience exclusively for student recruitment. Ci puts a modern day “mail box" in the pocket of every student prospect - 24/7.
