The secret ingredient to enrollment success: Belonging

Learn how Fresno State helps incoming students develop a strong sense of belonging during the admissions process to improve conversion and equity.

As prospective students decide where to go to college, they visit campus and peruse marketing images of leafy landscapes, old buildings, new residence halls, chemistry labs, and students having fun on the quad. They do this in the hope of finding a school where they think they’ll belong, fit in, and feel at home – but they can’t find what they really want to know: What are the students here actually like, and will there be anyone there “like me?” Other students with similar identities? Interests? Life experiences? From my hometown?

Play this webinar  to hear from enrollment leaders at Fresno State (California State University, Fresno) and other institutions leveraging Nearpeer, the leading peer-to-peer engagement platform that drives a meaningful sense of belonging as early as the point of application. Nearpeer is proven to improve enrollment yield, persistence, and equity.
