The Office of Admission began piecing together its talent team last fall, a unit commissioned to develop personalized videos for all students that were accepted to attend Lynn for the 2019-20 academic year.
Well-known for forming a unique and individualized experience for all incoming students, the Office of Admission sought to improve its connection to prospective families. While personalized tours and a one-to-one relationship with its admission counselors went a long way, it was time to implement a fresh take on sharing the university’s electric atmosphere.
“One of the best parts about working in Admission is seeing how included they make the students feel,” said Greymar Maldonado, sophomore. “It is something that you definitely don’t see in other schools.”
Admission’s talent team focuses on transmitting positive energy to accepted students, hoping to provide some brief insight into what the future could hold for them at Lynn. The group also offers facts and tips for the various majors of interest, further connecting prospective students with their potential collegiate home.
“Making incoming students feel like this will be their home away from home,” said Salma Moran, freshman. “It’s really cool knowing you might be helping them with the nerves of coming to college.”
Each video is personalized with the specific student’s needs in mind. The pilot program has grown over time and stands as yet another example of how the university strives to promote an independent and individualized college experience for all.
As the talent team prepares for the home stretch of the 2019-20 application cycle, its focus remains on helping to ease students into the rush of their first few days in college. If the initial months of the program are any indication, just a single video can make a tremendous impact for incoming freshmen and their families.
