- "They can go to one place and see all the videos without having to send them to youtube."
- "StudentBridge really helped to provide that fun and exciting experience and capture it in their videos."
- "Working with StudentBridge was really easy."
One of the biggest reasons we chose StudentBridge was because they showcased a lot of their professional work on their website, and it gave us a really good idea of what they've already accomplished and can accomplish for our university.
So before working with StudentBridge, we didn't have a way to visually engage with our students. We decided to get a Virtual Campus Experience for UNC Charlotte because we wanted to create new, fun, and exciting videos for our students. The Virtual Campus Experience dashboard is good for that because they can go to one place, see all the videos and not have to send our students out to YouTube or other hosting video sites.
Before going with StudentBridge, UNC Charlotte really didn't have a lot of videos that showcased academics, classrooms, athletics, student life. StudentBridge really helped to provide that fun and exciting experience and capture it all in different videos for us. What sets StudentBridge apart from other providers is that oftentimes you'll find that companies provide universities with just a virtual campus tour rather than a video experience. And that's really what StudentBridge is good at is creating those videos and putting it into a dashboard that's interactive for really anybody who is interested in the university.
Working with StudentBridge was really easy. They set you up with a project manager, and they get you all coordinated and organized in the pre-planning process before the video crew shows up on campus and arrives for the day to shoot. And they do a really great job of keeping the communication lines open for if you ever have any questions or concerns during the planning process.
StudentBridge's services have a really great impact on our recruitment efforts. Not only did they provide an awesome Video Viewbook for us, but we also use their videos at our big events, which is open house, and that's where most of our prospective students come. And so it's really great because they can see all the videos and really get a great idea of what campus is like. That's a big help for us, and they've been really successful so far. I think what surprised me the most about working with StudentBridge is the young and creative talent with their video crew, and also how portable they are. Their equipment is top notch, but it's not over the top. They can get around campus really fast and shoot in several different locations.
Some advice that I would give somebody considering StudentBridge would be to go ahead and look at some of their other examples of their professional work. Consider the options of what you're looking for and see if it works for you.
