About the Student-View Report

Successful college marketing programs achieve two basic goals:

  • Build high levels of awareness among prospective students
  • Create a positive perception of the institution among those students

Only a small number of institutions achieve the ideal position of having both high awareness and favorable perception. Many institutions have a gap in awareness or perception. Some institutions have a gap in both. Where does your institution fit?
