Evolution Labs today announced that The University of Tampa has launched UTampa360 using the company's S360™ engagement platform. S360 enables colleges to immerse prospective, admitted and current students and their parents in highly engaging web and mobile-based experiences designed to foster a stronger affinity between student and school and to impact matriculation outcomes and student success. UTampa360 utilizes the S360 Yield and Parent Yield products and launched this month to all admitted students and their families ahead of the May 1 national deposit deadline.

"As a globally connected university with state-of-the art facilities designed to foster experiential learning, The University of Tampa is an ideal partner to take advantage of the S360 Suite," said Peter Kraft, Co-founder at Evolution Labs. "The S360 Yield program is designed to immerse UT admits in an interactive, extremely personalized experience on the web and on their mobile devices. UTampa360 lets admitted students connect with and dive deeply into the rich possibilities of attending the university."

S360 provides prospective, admitted and current students with individualized content tailored to the criteria and interests they find most relevant to their own college path - from academics and faculty to campus location, as well as size and personality of the school. As admits learn more about UT through expert-written topics, engaging videos and surveys, they can also interact and "shadow" current students, view official as well as "student-voice" social media feeds and share their interest in UT by connecting program features with their preferred social networks - all on a single platform. S360 utilizes a proprietary algorithm designed to determine the preferences of admits on a multifaceted spectrum that considers academic, financial and lifestyle fit. Engagement insights are delivered back to the school in real time, arming staff to make better communication and enrollment decisions.

"We are excited to launch UTampa360 on a platform which promises to be an excellent addition to the experience we provide students and their families following admission to the university," said Dennis Nostrand, Vice President of Enrollment at UT. "S360 will enable us to extend a 24 x 7 digital helping hand that ushers students through the orientation and matriculation process and also provides an e-orientation to the wide range of academic and personal support services they will be able to access as UT freshmen."
