Why college students stop short of a degree?!

While reading this article, I was alarmed by the percentage of students that were dropping out of college. The article does go on to say , staying in college and going to a college ( you can afford) is recommended. Rather than leaving without a degree because of a financial burden or simply because you have to work at it.

(In my opinion) unless, you have that dream job on lockdown, STAY and complete your degree. The work force is way too competitive not to be a college graduate.

So to quote Thomson Jefferson “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.”

20 Trends in College Marketing

A member of our marketing and media team came across this blog – and we just had to share it.  Their most recent post outlines 20 Cool Trends in College Marketing, and we think they’re right on point: 20 Cool Trends in College Marketing

A few things stood out to us, namely the Yale video!  The article reported that, “today’s new crop of college commercials, stunning graphics, endearing comedy, and even explosions are used to attract students to a particular college.”  Much like a promotional campaign for a client, Yale used humor and peer interactions to showcase their style.  The student-created video received more than 1 million views.
