The what's what...

Every enrollment manager knows how important authentic student stories are to the student recruitment process.  Prospective students want to know what current students think of your institution — full stop. 

But sourcing great student stories can be challenging. On this week’s episode of Fanatical Fridays, Mickey and Zach brainstorm simple, creative, and effective strategies for finding the best student stories and facilitating interviews that enable these stories to be captured and leveraged.
