Georgia Southern University
Georgia Southern University drives yield by deploying a series of virtual events with a multitude of engaging content.
Georgia Southern University wanted a virtual option for its existing on-campus events. Georgia Southern partnered with StudentBridge to create a Virtual Event where prospective students could explore more than they ever could in a single day by viewing pre-recorded content — from presentations and recorded classes to walk-around tours, panel discussions, and more. Within a single virtual event, Georgia Southern increased their attendance from 400 in-person attendees to 15,000 virtual visitors. This led to their largest freshman class ever and continued enrollment growth over subsequent years.
