There's a reason they call it the "million dollar walk."

No recruitment activity impacts yield efforts like the all-important campus visit. 

It's a statement that, as seasoned former admissions pros ourselves, we support enthusiastically. Together we help visitors tap into the ethos of your community and leave campus with a clear vision of who you are and whether or not you are the place for them. 

The challenge is, with each passing year, things change: Your campus changes. Your staff changes. Tour guides graduate. Visitors come to campus with different expectations. That's why the most successful leaders make visit consulting a recurring budget line item.
