Evolution Labs today announced that the University of Central Florida has selected its S360™ engagement products to reshape the manner in which students and their parents interact with the university after a student has been admitted. UCF, the nation’s second largest university, will launch the S360 Yield and Parents Yield modules this month. Students who have been given an offer of admission will be invited to join, as well as their parents or guardians.

“Evolution Labs’ approach to enrollment yield is student-centric; their platform and its features can help us build a better relationship with admits and their parents by focusing on the individual interests and needs of each family,” said Dr. Gordon Chavis, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Services at UCF. “It is technology with a purpose – their platform will help the university build stronger relationships with admitted students and families by providing an immersive, one-to-one experience at a scale that our growing enrollment demands.”

S360 enables colleges to immerse admitted students in engaging web and mobile-based experiences designed to foster a meaningful affinity between student and school, and to impact deposits, summer melt and, ultimately, student success. The platform provides admits with highly individualized content tailored to the criteria and interests they find most relevant to their own college journey – whether they’re interested in exploring a major or discovering what it’s like to live in a residence hall. As admits learn more about UCF through expert-written topics, engaging videos and surveys, they can also interact with other admitted students, view “real-life” social media feeds from UCF staff and students, and share their interest in UCF by connecting program features with their preferred social networks – all on a single platform.

“The University of Central Florida understands that the key to engaging today’s millennial students is providing them with content tailored to their personal interests,” said Peter Kraft, CEO and Co-founder at Evolution Labs. “When you’re the second largest university in the country, that’s easier said than done. UCF’s selection of the S360 Suite is a testament to the platform’s ability to immerse students in a highly individualized experience.”
