About College Interactive
College Interactive was born out of a third generation-owned, commercial printing company that services the higher education community in the New England area. Rob Feldman, founder and CEO, identified a downward trend in the effectiveness of print and other legacy communications for admissions marketing and student recruitment and formed College Interactive to develop a better way for students and colleges to ‘find’ and communicate with each other. “Colleges continue to rely upon traditional marketing channels such as print, web, email and phone to reach today’s tech oriented “Gen-Z” student prospects. College Interactive is transforming the college bound student experience and student recruitment for colleges and universities with its mobile app”, says Feldman. College Interactive is an extensive team of dedicated education professionals, with backgrounds in education technology, school counseling, admissions and enrollment management, student recruitment, and marketing communications.
