Since 2014, Tudor Collegiate Strategies has partnered with over 100 different college and university admission and marketing teams nationwide.
Our training workshops have helped thousands of college admissions professionals become better recruiters and leaders. And our communication plans have helped numerous colleges and universities achieve and exceed their enrollment goals by creating more personalized and engaging messaging that helps them be more relational and less transactional.
We’re not a vendor, we’re your partner, and we’re all in!
We understand that college admissions and marketing isn’t a 9 to 5, Mon-Fri position, and we’re there when schools need counsel and strategic advice.
Check out what some of the people we’ve partnered with have to say…
“I’ve been reading Jeremy’s newsletter for years, and after sharing dozens of articles with our team I thought it was time that they were able to work with him in person. The response from our Admissions Counselors has been amazing. Jeremy has a unique ability to make difficult topics fun to discuss and is able to bring the best out of each member of our team. In addition to the group sessions, his one-on-one conversations with our team members have helped each person grow and allowed us to identify opportunities for additional coaching and training. It’s rare that something makes everyone happy. Our work with TCS and Jeremy has certainly been one of those things.”
“We started partnering with Tudor Collegiate Strategies to help us with our communication plan and we are thrilled with the results of the response rates from students. We are actually hearing from our students and having authentic conversations about what matters most to them. The training in particular for our team by Jeremy Tiers has exceeded our expectations and continues to be an invaluable asset to our partnership. Our team can’t say enough about TCS!”
“We enjoyed having Jeremy visit our campus. Perhaps the most helpful were the questions he provided to our staff that allowed our team to get a better sense of where our students might be in the decision making process. He gave us some tips on how we could develop stronger relationships with our students through a series of questions that gave us insight into what was most important to them in their college choice. This helped us build a foundation that we could lean into as we neared the end of the recruitment cycle. We all walked away from our time with Jeremy having learned a few new strategies we could try which made it really practical and fun for our team!”
“Our two-day workshop with Jeremy set the course for the next two years of our recruitment efforts. Our team came away with practical activities to help with drafting emails, making phone calls, creating an elevator pitch, and much more. The workshop also boosted team morale, which is always a plus! To this day, when I have 1on1 meetings with team members, some will inevitable say, “I do this because Jeremy said…” The impact of the workshop is obviously still being felt and will continue to be felt for a long time to come!”
“I was beyond excited when our leadership team agreed to host Jeremy for an admissions workshop with our staff. For the past couple of years I have been an avid reader of Jeremy’s newsletters. More often than not, I would find myself sharing his articles during our weekly staff meetings to encourage discussion amongst the admissions counselors on ways we can improve our recruitment efforts. Jeremy spent two days with us working through best practices and strategies to improve our recruitment methods – everything from crafting effective emails, planning on-campus events, and most importantly, understanding today’s students. We are so appreciative of our time with Jeremy, and of course, I continue to read and share his articles whenever possible.”
“I have been a weekly reader of Jeremy’s newsletters and blog for close to two years. I frequently bring his articles to our weekly admissions staff meeting for professional development pieces. We read through it as a team, discuss the contents, and consider what we do well and where we can improve. Our Director and I decided to make the investment to bring Jeremy to our campus to put on an admissions workshop. This proved, without a doubt, to be incredibly productive and beneficial in developing further the knowledge and techniques to recruit effectively. He presents a straight-lined approach of effective recruitment techniques, and he touches on ALL areas of recruitment, including larger on-campus recruitment events, best practices for admissions counselors, and effective communication practices (letters/e-mails/texts/etc.) Following Jeremy’s workshop, I received consistent positive feedback from our admissions team.”
“Working with Tudor Collegiate Strategies has been a huge benefit to our Admissions operation. With a limited staff, finding the time to write all the communications we needed to develop relationships with our students was impossible. Every couple of months, two months of communications arrive which we can easily incorporate into our communications plan. TCS really understands who we are, and the communications are perfectly tailored to our college. Jeremy is always available to assist in any way we need. I can contact him at any time and he responds quickly no matter where he might be around the country. His expertise and recommendations are incredibly valuable. We often hear from students and especially parents how much they appreciate the time and attention we give them through our communications. Everyone feels they are receiving a very personal touch.”
“Jeremy and the TCS team have challenged us to reframe the way we approach communication with students, families, and school counselors. They have helped us craft a relational communication strategy that is true to our institutional identity. It has transformed our interactions with students and driven us to big results. They are truly a partner in that they are responsive to our feedback and available to any of our staff to talk through everything from drip marketing strategies to staff burnout. The whole admission team knows Jeremy, has his cell phone number, and knows that he’s available to them when needed. It’s about relationships and that’s what TCS is all about.”
“Working with TCS and Jeremy has been a game changer. They inspired us to take a more audience-centered approach to our enrollment marketing and communications strategies and the effort has been well worth it. We can see in our data that it played a big role in enrolling our largest freshman class ever.”
“We first encountered Tudor Collegiate Strategies and Jeremy through a newsletter a colleague shared with one of us. After subscribing, we began using his weekly newsletter as a professional development piece. Although these newsletters are short, they always include information we can implement immediately, so we decided to bring TCS to campus for a couple for days to work with us, even though we had just enjoyed some record enrollment in our freshman market segment. The training that Jeremy led was so customized to our needs and my team left feeling invigorated and ready to embrace another busy recruitment cycle. Although 2020 has seen more than its share of unexpected surprises and challenges, we’ve been able to use the tools and data Jeremy provided the team to continue to engage prospective students at a high level. Jeremy has continued to reach out to us to check in periodically and to offer helpful advice. We believe he truly delivers some of the best professional development out there for admissions officers and recruiters!”
“Having seen the added value of bringing TCS to Baldwin Wallace for an on-site admission counselor training session, BW subsequently partnered with them to also assist with efforts to write and edit recruitment materials. Over the course of a year, TCS produced or updated roughly 85 emails and print items. Many of the TCS edits and rewrites brought a counselor voice into the communication items, helping to spur engagement with prospective students. I found the partnership to be incredibly valuable, providing short-term lift as well as enhancing BW’s long-term capacity to improve our external messaging.”
“The TCS workshop was exactly what we needed at exactly the right time. Even though we have an experienced staff of admissions professionals, Jeremy’s discussions (based on data from our own students) were a great reminder of what we all need to do to recruit this current generation. I highly recommend this training for any school that wants to improve its customer service!”
