  • Use SMS messages to schedule or coordinate meetings and interviews.
  • Remind students where to navigate to fill out particular online forms or find offices on your campus.
  • Use segments to target students who meet particular criteria, i.e. students who have graduated from your institution at the undergraduate level.
  • Connect with local businesses to enable partnerships.
