[SLU's] goal is to make sure prospective students and their families have a unique and engaging campus visit. S360 will allow us to do that in a more meaningful way
Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) August 13, 2015
Evolution Labs announced today that Saint Louis University has chosen its S360™ engagement platform to enhance the admissions experience of their prospective students. S360 will enable SLU to immerse prospective and admitted students in highly engaging web and mobile-based experiences designed to foster a more meaningful affinity between students and SLU. In addition, SLU will use the software to bring dynamic social media feeds to life, projecting student posts and campus visit comments onto an oversized monitor in the Office of Admission’s New Student Visit Center.
This innovative platform will provide SLU’s prospective students with highly individualized content tailored to the criteria and interests they find most relevant to their own college search—from academics and faculty to campus location, size and personality of the school. Through articles, videos and quizzes, prospective students can learn more about SLU, interact and “shadow” current students, view "real-life" social media feeds and share their interest by connecting program features with their preferred social networks—all on a single platform.
“Programs like S360 are focused on optimizing the student’s experience,” said Jean Marie Gilman, AVP of Enrollment and Dean of Admission. "Our goal is to make sure prospective students and their families have a unique and engaging campus visit. S360 will allow us to do that in a more meaningful way.”
From the S360 platform, SLU will display dynamic social media content in their New Student Visit Center. This display lets prospects immerse themselves in the words, imagery and advice of current SLU students, faculty and staff, bridging SLU’s digital presence with its physical one.
“Saint Louis University is a leader in leveraging new technology to enhance the admissions process,” said Peter Kraft, Co-founder at Evolution Labs. “In this competitive admissions environment, we believe universities that focus on student-centric engagement tools to better hone in on prospects’ interests will emerge in a leadership position over institutions that rely mainly on administrator-centric platforms, such as CRMs.”
Saint Louis University is a Catholic, Jesuit institution with campuses in St. Louis, Mo. and Madrid, Spain. SLU values academic excellence, life-changing research, compassionate health care, and a strong commitment to faith and service. For nearly 200 years, the University has gone beyond teaching facts and figures, encouraging students to form ideas and identities. Today, SLU students are more than 13,000 strong, seeking to mold their lives into something stronger. As it approaches 200 years, Saint Louis University is going boldly forward with an unwavering commitment to a higher purpose, a greater good.
