Working with StudentBridge has helped increase our presence immensely. We now have a place for prospective students to go to learn more about the University through videos that involve current students and faculty, as well as a virtual map to show them exactly the buildings that they will be living in and working in and studying in on campus.
The feedback that we've received from students has been extremely positive. Everyone from deans to students, alumni, parents, they've all seen the videos, and they're very excited that we finally have content like this online. In the past, we had a static website, which doesn't really give a prospective student the opportunity to see what campus is all about, and this platform certainly does. We've had students come back to our office and tell us that not only did they see the videos, but they were able to share them via Facebook and Twitter and other social media channels. Because some of them are actually in the videos, they want their friends to see them, their families to see them. But most importantly, they feel like it's a great opportunity for them to represent the University of Tulsa.
Some of the factors that led TU to StudentBridge included cost. We had been looking at different companies to help us with a virtual map, and we were looking at separate companies to help us with video. So when StudentBridge came along and gave us the opportunity to do both of those components together at a reasonable price, we jumped on it right away. What surprised me the most about working with StudentBridge was the ease. I worked with getting students scheduled and getting professors scheduled, and the videographers that came to campus took it from there. They were professional. I didn't have to worry about the right questions that they were asking or how they interacted with students. We were able to help edit and determine what content we wanted included in those videos, so that our university was represented as well as it possibly could be. It was a very easy process, and that completely surprised me.
The first sign that we had made the right decision to go with StudentBridge was when we saw the complete platform online. It looked professional, it fit in directly with the design of our new website, and we really felt like StudentBridge did a great job bringing the two together. And I would highly recommend them to any university.
