grad student admissions Banner resized 600For today’s students, technology is no longer a luxury; it is a way of life. The Millennials are the first generation to grow up talking on smartphones and typing on laptops and tablets as a regular part of their educational experience. Add in increasingly more spectacular movies and video games, and you have a culture in which a barrage of modern technology and special effects constantly compete for Millennial attention.

When it comes to college admissions, it is no surprise that these students expect a high level of technological sophistication from the colleges which they are considering attending. Wi-Fi and online registration are no longer enough to pull away from the pack. A university that hopes to court the students of today must take a technological approach to dealing with the admissions process.

So how do you get the attention of students who are already used to having constant access to data, games and other entertainment? Deliver information in an even higher-impact format than that to which they might typically be accustomed. Video walls not only deliver essential information about a university, but can convey that information in a fun, captivating way that leaves a lasting impression.

Unlike old-fashioned university catalogs or campus maps, modern video walls offer an immersive, interactive experience that demonstrates a school’s commitment to technology and cements its reputation as a tech-forward university that is on the cutting edge. 

There is a lot of competition for the best and brightest incoming students. A well-designed video wall is the kind of on-campus technology that is fun, creative and beautiful that it can actually make a university stand out.
