Inside Every PeopleGrove Student Enrollment Solution

A centralized community of current students, faculty, and alumni ready to extend a warm welcome

Increase Applications

  • Captivate every prospective student. The real way to highlight what makes one university different from the rest is to leverage authentic voices of its community. Happy students, inspiring faculty, and accomplished alumni show what campus life is all about.
  • Engage early with students via live support. Make it easy for prospective students and their families to connect with Admissions & Enrollment staff when they have questions. It's streamlined advising and no more waiting on hold.

Improve Yield

  • Leave a lasting impression. Imagine the joy a student feels if they received a custom welcome video along with their admissions acceptance envelope. It's an immediate connection to peers and campus life, and in PeopleGrove, anyone can do this in a minute or less.
  • #PoweredByInfluencers. Word of mouth is the strongest form of marketing. When universities use student and alumni testimonials to tell authentic stories about their campus and career experience, it impacts prospective learners during their decision-making process.

Reduce Summer Melt

  • Meet future classmates before class starts. Drive a sense of belonging and more interactions between prospective and current students to achieve deeper engagement. As future learners build relationships, they’ll be more likely to enroll and succeed.
  • Replace anxiety with excitement. From picking a college to submitting forms on time, the enrollment process is daunting. Offer greater support from peers and alumni to reduce the stress for prospective students.

First Year Persistence

  • Like Google Maps, but for onboarding. When a student’s journey from freshman to sophomore in college feels more like turn by turn directions, they know exactly where they need to go.
  • Pair incoming students with an experienced peer. It’s helpful for learners to get advice from someone further in their journey. And since alumni in PeopleGrove want to guide incoming students, it’s a win-win.
