Admitted students are looking for personalized engagement and authenticity, and require an exceptional digital experience. At Wisr, we can help you create thriving online communities where admitted students connect with current student leaders and engage with curated online content specifically made for them.
When the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) changed its code of ethics in late 2019, the rules of competition changed. With online communities and engagement tools from Wisr, your institution can use positive peer influencers, online learning modules, and just-in-time content delivery to significantly reduce melt in this time of increased competition.
The Enrollment Yield Pivot
“Wisr has been an amazing partner with the Yale admissions office during our rapid transition to online programming. In only two weeks, we went from an email inquiry to a fully functional and personalized admitted students’ network with nearly 2,000 members and dozens of communities. It’s been wonderful to watch our staff and admitted students quickly build meaningful connections and create great digital content.”
Director of Outreach & Recruitment and Associate Director of Admissions, Yale University
How the Process Works
Configurable goals and volunteer items
Prospective and admitted students select from a customizable list of goals that offer ways to engage with current student ambassadors and your staff. Collecting this information helps you understand how members are using the site and what support your prospective students need.
Personalized dashboard with next steps and community recommendations
Every member has a personalized dashboard with suggested next steps and recommended communities. Next steps are personalized based on each member’s goals and offer tips on how to get the most out of the network. Recommended communities allow your team to pre-invite members to communities based on their interests and academic background, and highlight site wide groups.
Admissions communities and suggested online content
Communities provide an easy way to support students with shared interests, identities, and goals. Use communities to share curated content made specifically for admitted students, cross-stream webinars and info sessions, and empower your student ambassadors and staff to share their campus experiences. The Wisr support team will work with your team to create a content strategy and posting schedule that best suits the goals of your office.
Real-time reliable engagement metrics
Your team will have access to customizable dashboards with a real-time engagement index to see which students are most plugged into your campus community and which may need additional outreach.
