Admissions to Prospective Transfers: Let’s Get Digital

Newsletter


 

Supplementing email, print materials and snail mail, Adelphi University and the Office of University Admissions have been stepping up their use of social media. The goal in terms of prospective transfer students: to reach and engage them in the digital world where they tend to congregate.

To do so, Adelphi utilizes a range of social media platforms, from the established Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, to newer players like Pinterest and Instagram.

Assistant Vice President of Admissions Christine Murphy cited the office’s increased social media usage to target transfers as one of the highlights of the past year. Christina Koromi, associate director of admissions—and also co-chair of the Transfer Initiatives Committee with Kristen Capezza, director of undergraduate admissions—said transfer students can connect with Adelphi in several ways.

“This past summer,” Ms. Koromi said, “we created a Facebook group, Adelphi University-Transfer Students, for accepted transfer students. Once accepted to the University, students are invited to join the group, where they can connect with transfer counselors, transfer ambassadors, staff members from the Center for Student Involvement and other accepted transfer students.” 

There are also freshman and graduate Facebook pages, she added.

The office’s fourth Transfer Chat was on February 19, 2014, “We will also schedule a Transfer Chat for the Fall 2014 semester,” she said. “That’s another opportunity for students who may be unable to get to campus to chat with transfer counselors and current Adelphi students who transferred themselves,” Ms. Koromi pointed out.
