  • College back-to-school spending topped $30 billion last year – this is not a market you want to ignore. Here are some tips for getting their attention.
  • Did you know that colleges are now looking at the social media accounts for potential students as part of the admissions process?
  • Eastern Michigan University decided to employee the help of its students in its latest marketing campaign – soliciting selfies and using them on billboards to promote the school.
