NEWS TIP: UT Tyler Launches New Facebook Application to Enhance Admissions
The University of Texas at Tyler has launched the “Schools on Facebook” application for admitted students, Charlie Hutchins, UT Tyler vice president for enrollment management and marketing, announced.
This application (www.uttyler.edu/facebookapp) will allow prospective students, current students, faculty, staff and alumni to connect via Facebook.
“UT Tyler launched to admitted students last month and will roll out to current students in late summer and alumni in early fall,” Hutchins said.
The university hopes to enhance admissions marketing as well as student engagement and alumni involvement. UT Tyler’s Student Communication Team monitors communication, answers questions and populates content. Student organizations also benefit from the program, he added.
Schools on Facebook is a Lifecycle Engagement Platform serving students from application through graduation and beyond. For more information, visit http://www.inigral.com/overview.php.
