Throughout the year, TCS Director of Admissions Services, Jeremy Tiers, is a guest on different Higher Ed podcasts and webinars. These are some of the most popular (and recent) episodes that you should check out:
5 RECRUITMENT INSIGHTS ABOUT THE CLASS OF 2022 (AUDIO CAST)
Listen as Jeremy teams up again with Will Patch of Niche to discuss 5 key points from their spring survey of over 7,100 high school juniors. They also did a bunch of Q&A, answering 30 minutes of audience questions.
In May of 2021, Jeremy was a guest on the final episode of Season 1 with Nathan Ament (Chief Enrollment Officer at Loyola Univ. New Orleans) and Teege Mettille (Vice President for Enrollment at Carroll University). He talked a lot about staff training, leadership, and developing relationships.
In this December, 2020 episode, Jeremy and Will Patch from Niche visited with Dan Tudor, nationally recognized recruiting strategy expert, author and speaker. They talked about their groundbreaking study into how the Class of 2021 is going through their college decision making process in the middle of the pandemic. The discussion will help any college recruiter – in athletics or admissions – be better at what they do.
It’s hard to fathom the number of changes that high school seniors have experienced this year. To better understand how they’re coping and changing their college search behaviors Niche and Tudor Collegiate Strategies surveyed over 31,000 seniors to understand how they’re feeling, where they are in their college search, and what their thoughts are on virtual events. In this November, 2020 webinar, Jeremy joins Will Patch from Niche to discuss the results and how you can use them to serve students well and meet your goals. There’s also some great Q&A at the end with listeners.
When was the last time you audited your communications flow? Or how about the last time you took a hard look at the language you use in the emails and letters that you send prospective students and parents? Zach Busekrus of the ‘Enrollify’ podcast sat down with Jeremy in April 2020 to discuss why the words you use really matter, and how colleges can develop more personalized, empathetic, and engaging communications.
This 2020 webinar was part of eduWeb’s ‘Lunch and Learn’ series. Jeremy joined Harrison “Soup” Campbell of ZeeMee and Megan Miller of RHB to discuss where Higher Ed marketers and admissions counselors can dedicate their energy as they fight summer melt, address attrition risks, and gear up to recruit next year’s students. Topics include understanding students’ priorities, fears, and needs; exploring what relationship-building looks like in the midst of a pandemic; and identifying the opportunities that exist as marketers navigate unfamiliar terrain.
The ‘Undeclared’ podcast is one of the best out there for Higher Ed Marketers. Allison Lanier and Scott Fogelman of Up&Up Agency had Jeremy on in 2019 to talk about lessons that admissions can learn from athletics, how marketing plays a role in the admissions ladder, the importance of personalized communications, vlogging, and much more!
For all the time, money and effort spent on getting prospective students to visit campus, once they are actually there, sometimes things fall flat. In this 2017 episode Jeremy teams up with Tudor Collegiate Strategies Founder and President, Dan Tudor, to talk about how admissions departments and coaches can improve the visit experience. Dan even shares some observations from his family’s recent visit to a college campus – what went right, and what went wrong. It’s a fascinating discussion that will give you direction on how to identify the bad things you may be doing during your visits, as well as what to do differently in the future.
