Sample CommentsStudent recruitment and current enrollment22 “The students are who bring in the tuition dollars and thus their experience mustbe the best possible. Enhancing the student experience will help in futurerecruitment and possibly even in recruiting better professors to teach thestudents.” “If were not meeting student needs and expectations with regard to the "real"world, then we wont have much of an enrollment. Hence academics becomemoot.” “From a recruiting and retention standpoint, the Student Experience is critical. Itneeds to be addressed in terms not only for traditional students, but also not-traditional, international, and online students as well.” “Students should have the experience here that makes them want to give back toLSU. Not just financially, but also through volunteering, helping to recruit, andbeing proud to say they went to such a great school.”
