Exciting Happenings

There’s a lot going on in our office! We hired a new webmaster who starts next week, I think. I was able to serve on the selection committee which was a new and fun experience for me. I really liked his professionalism and he seems quite skilled. Looking forward to passing off some of our web stuff to him now that we’ll have someone who can do that full-time instead of two people doing different things. They were both very good, just over-worked. Now we can just work him into the ground! Just kidding of course.

Our office also recently received some results from Mindpower, a marketing company out of Atlanta. They came up with some great stuff for us to use in marketing Franklin. It’s all top-secret right now, but once it’s out, watch out!

We’ve been really rocking and rolling with Continuum too. I’ve been looking at all our workflows, making some training videos, documenting my processes, etc.  In my role as an admissions counselor, I’ve also stayed quite busy.  In admissions everyone works really hard and once you make your class you can start planning for next year. At the same time we start thinking about next year and planning for that. Also we have evaluations. Whew! That’s a lot all at once!

I’ve been working on getting some content for our admitted student community but we don’t seem to have as many students this year as we had last year. Most activity has been on the Admitted Student Group on Facebook. I really think our population of students uses Facebook a lot more. With the Ning changes (that probably won’t affect us that much) it’s caused me to think about whether or not we should continue. I’ll probably spend some time this summer looking at Ning and other ways we reach out to students and trying to determine what is best for us and make appropriate recommendation. This new marketing stuff will be helpful too. I think we’ll really be able to use it to capitalize on some opportunities that we haven’t really utilized in the past.

All for now I suppose. On today’s agenda: Upload student data, review comm sequence, set up a new email workflow.

All in all, busy April, and probably a busy May, too! Oh, and the 500 is right around the corner!

Five Fundamentals

Notes from the Target X Webinar – None of these thoughts are my own, they are just notes from the Webinar. These thoughts came straight from Bran Ward and Adrienne Bartlett. Check them out of Twitter: @bradjward and @adriennebartlett.

Summer Projects

I know, I haven’t blogged in a while. But it’s about to get even busier around here. Typically it’s slow in the summer, but not this summer for me! We’re launcing a new and improved blog for prospective students, increasing our university’s presence on Facebook, and using more social media like Twitter. I am really frustrated because FCAdmissions is already taken for Twitter and I can’t figure out if I did it and just can’t remember the password, or someone stole it out from under me. No followers and no messages out so I guess that’s a good thing.

Also, I sort of volunteered for something with our database. The company that runs Continuum is thinking about starting a users group and I volunteered to be a part of the process. But I’m not sure what that entails. I’m looking forward to it!

That’s all for now. However, stay tuned. I am working on lots of projects that are blog worthy. I promise.
