  132. 132. Characteristics of NNE Students<br />Average GPA: 3.62<br />In honors program: 32%<br />Undergrad research experience: 16%<br />
  133. 133. How Do Students Benefit?<br />Participation in the National Name Exchange not only provided institutions information about me but also provided me with information on programs offered at various institutions, many of which I had never considered.— Student Participant, Northwestern University<br />National Name Exchange has been valuable because it has introduced me to many colleges, and has spurned me to work harder in order to maintain the type of excellence that allows me such an opportunity. <br />— Student Participant, Washington University<br />
  134. 134. Participant Feedback<br />I have only gotten a few responses from schools. <br />It has encouraged me to pursue grad school…they have sent me a welcoming email describing their activities and services. <br />I loved the idea of it. But it hasn’t been consistent with contacting me.<br />None of them made the necessary efforts to get my attention. The e-mails I received all seemed automatically generated, as if it was a mass e-mail sent to a large number of people.<br />
  135. 135. What’s In It For Us?<br />Relationship management<br />Store notes [i.e. contacted student on 3/30, is also considering offers from Berkeley, etc.]<br />Custom filter information that’s important to your program<br />Sort by GPA, graduation year, ethnicity, research experience, area of interest, institution, already contacted, date contacted<br />Access to over 6,000 students nationwide<br />Real time access to student info & notifications<br />
  136. 136. What’s In It For Us? cont’d.<br />Create/store email templates to students<br />i.e. Response to students seeking info about specific programs in department, Funding opportunities, About the UW/Seattle<br />

  141. 141. How Departments use the NNE<br />To let students know when they’re in town for recruitment fairs, coffee, etc.<br />Sort by institution, zip code, etc.<br />Sync with departmental prospective student database<br />Maintain communication with prospectives year round, rather than 1x year.<br />
