FAMU launches S360™ engagement platform to reach incoming students in a digital and mobile environment designed to offer the campus experience to outgoing high school students.
MORRISTOWN, NJ — Evolution Labs announced that Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) has selected its innovative S360™ engagement platform to heighten and personalize the student experience from the point of admission to the first day of classes.
The platform enables colleges to immerse prospective, admitted and current students in highly engaging web and mobile-based experiences. FAMU selected the S360 Yield module for its initial launch.
All FAMU newly admitted students can now access the content via a mobile app and mobile responsive website.
“Evolution Labs’ S360 Yield promises to reshape the admitted student experience at FAMU, ensuring that incoming students have a positive, personalized interaction from the point of admission to their first day on our beautiful campus,” said Nigel Edwards, associate vice president for Student Affairs/Enrollment Management. “The platform will help us strengthen the responsiveness and support we provide admitted students by granting them access to pertinent information and resources, including social content, tips and tools, and insight from current students and campus leaders.”
S360 provides prospective, admitted and current students with highly individualized content customized to the criteria and interests they find most relevant to their own college experience – from academics and faculty to campus location, as well as size and personality of the school.
As new admits learn more about FAMU through expert-written topics, engaging videos and surveys, they can also interact and “shadow” current students, view official, as well as trending social media feeds and share their interest in FAMU by connecting program features with their preferred social networks – all on a single platform. S360 also utilizes a proprietary algorithm designed to determine propensity of admits on a multifaceted spectrum that considers academic, financial and lifestyle fit. Engagement insights are delivered back to the school in real time, arming them to make better communication and enrollment decisions.
“As a renowned HBCU and leading national university, FAMU was looking for a way to better convey the campus experience to admitted students and provide a pre-orientation prior to the start of on-campus orientation, campus move-in and the start of fall classes,” said Tracy Howe, co-founder at Evolution Labs. “The S360 platform is the perfect match for universities like FAMU that believe tailoring content to individual tastes and needs is essential in communicating with Millennial and Gen-Z audiences.”
