I know from personal experience that promoting on-campus events can be a daunting and tricky task. I spent 4 years in college working for Auburn University’s University Program Council. We planned all of the student-fee funded on-campus events for students. Our events included workshops, movies, carnivals, concerts and more. After promoting countless events over the years, I have learned what works and what doesn’t. Here are the 4 best tips to get students to your on-campus events.
If you don't really know what a "chatbot" is, don't worry. Many people don't know them by that name, but chances are great that you've interacted with, or engaged in an online activity with a bot. If you do know what a chatbot is, but haven't considered it functional in Higher Ed just yet, I hate to tell you that you're already behind.
Recently we mentioned how convenience has changed the student experience through the use of apps and other technology. Students don't just want a convenient college experience, they expect it. The right apps can make college students' lives much easier and more convenient, so it's important to be aware of the helpful resources that are available to you. As a senior, I've used my fair share of apps during my college career, and I would like to think that I've narrowed down the apps that are worthy of taking up precious storage on your phone. So here are our picks for the top 5 must-have apps for college students:
Determining what college or university to attend is a huge decision, and one teens make every day. These potential students for your university matter, especially the out-of-state students. Why? Let's take a look.
Attracting potential, out-of-state students to your university is crucial, but engaging their parents is just as important. For parents, there's a lot that goes into the decision making process when choosing a university for their child. These factors may include how well of a fit the university is, the program for their major, location, scholarships, sports programs, greek life, graduation rate, tuition, and more.
When people think of "entrepreneurship" they only associate it with running your own business, but entrepreneurship is much more than just creating and owning a business. Entrepreneurship is described as the "capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit." Programs dedicated to entrepreneurship in universities are growing and attracting invaluable students every day. In fact, the first course designed for entrepreneurship students alone was founded in 1927. Since then entrepreneurship has flourished to be a top program in many business schools, but not all offer this program. If your university does not have a program just for entrepreneurship, here are some reasons you should get on board.

Imagine. It’s graduation and the graduates from your university are preparing to walk across the stage. Once they walk across the stage, they are gone from any involvement in the university. EVER. AGAIN.
Fall is here, and if you're from the south (or anywhere that even remotely follows college sports), you know what that means: football season. Fall means football, and football means tailgating. Tailgating is a fun way to celebrate school spirit and a great excuse to eat and drink with friends and family. Football season also presents the perfect opportunity to connect with alumni by hosting an alumni tailgate. Hosting an event such as this allows the university to show gratitude and appreciation for its alumni while providing alumni the chance to experience the excitement of football season at their beloved alma mater all over again.
