Student Affairs Professionals
be Like...

Quote Mark.png

Despite hours of planning of strategizing it seems like students just don't come to programs anymore. 

This generation of students aren't like the ones who came before them.

It's tough to engage students because they're always on their phones.

But what if

it's our approach that needs to be transformed?

 
GUESS WHAT.png

According to Dr. Patricia Rissmeyer at Emmanuel College, for our students today, if we calculated all of the hours they spend studying, attending classes, sleeping, eating, working and other personal activities, they’re roughly left with 50 hours a week of unscheduled time...not to mention the time spend staring at their phones’.

ONLY 50 HOURS!

As Student Affairs professionals this is the small window that we have to help students develop and find their purpose on our campus.

We try to optimize our time and resources by hosting events and starting initiatives for students.
But if we miss the mark, we face:

  • Budget cuts
  • Retention problems 
  • Most Importantly, We miss the opportunity to connect with & develop students.

TRANSFORM HOW YOU THINK ABOUT STUDENT ENGAGEMENT

One thing to keep in mind when planning a program for students is that you want to create FOMO!

WTH is FOMO? 
It’s the Fear Of Missing Out.
Study shows that 7/9 (69%) students experience FOMO.

How to create FOMO?
One of the best ways to do this is having a live performance event that students are able to sign up for online.
