The Digital Landscape Of College Search
The aspiring college student is one that will stop at nothing to find a college right for their goals and dreams. In years past, the search for that college may have been more difficult as compiling all of the information for potential schools would’ve been much harder than it is today. However, as the primarily ‘digital generation’ has come to understand, a more sophisticated means to this search is offered by nearly every college today. Aspiring students are able to view any of the campuses they’re interested in virtually, and peer into an institution’s offerings digitally as well. While it’s clear this is the most effective means of offering this information, it does put a lot of pressure on higher education institutions. In order to offer this information, colleges must be prepared for the expectations of these students, as some questions may be outside of the scope they’d ever expect. This is why there is plenty of research and development done by these colleges, as this step of the process is incredibly influential in whether or not a student feels as though a particular college is the right choice for them.
