  • Midwestern boarding school – South Korean student called Director of Admission for a campus tour and requested “Bobby” as the student tour guide. Bobby was not an official guide but someone met on Facebook. Student later enrolled.
  • Northeastern school – Alumni office having trouble attracting younger crowd to annual cocktail party in Boston. Added event to Facebook page and wrote “Free Cocktails” across a pic of Boston Skyline. Dramatic increase in attendance by young alumni.
  • Southeastern high school – Admission office ran annual picnic for area eighth graders. Office asked current high school students to create a Facebook group and invite all eighth grade friends at feeder schools. 50% increase in attendance compared to previous years with no other change in marketing efforts.
  • Consumers/citizens are making decisions today based upon these online conversations and not just upon what is being officially delivered to them.
  • Alumni driven
  • What is LinkedIn?
  • Over 23,000 photos! What do you do with all your school photos?
  • Used to be Tweet Later. Allows you to schedule Tweets so you don’t have to tweet all day long.
  • Sports – Love ‘em? Hate ‘em?Gets parents, students, alumni excited about your schoolMay be the only way to get them involved at firstOnce excited, you can tell them more, invite them to more, get their participation in arts and other activities
  • Sports Community vs. School Community
  • From social media to your Web siteTempt them back to your site – Post just a few photos on Facebook and say, “For more, go to our Web site at….”
  • Share this button
  • We have "shadow" Facebook and Twitter that we are internally-only exploringand playing with this semester before launching anything that would gooutside Admin/teachers. We’re a small (<200 students), pre-K – Grade 5, Episcopal school in Menlo Park, CA.We were hearing, increasingly, from our young parents that they use such things to communicate, almost exclusively. We knew that we’d need to jump on the bandwagon but had heard horror stories, so we wanted to have full control before we just put things out there; hence the “shadow” accounts. Most of us did NOT use FB or TW, so we wanted to get educated and to play around with things. Once we evaluate, we will likely launch in New Year or next School Year.B.Michael McFarlandDirector of DevelopmentTrinity School2650 Sand Hill RoadMenlo Park, CA 94025T: 650.854.0288x150F: 650.854.1374e: bmcfarland@trinity-mp.org
