Partner Spotlight: How WVU Communication Studies Showcases Student Success

At Seelio we get to see regular examples of the amazing thing students are accomplishing. Like Valerie’s involvement in Hack the Gender Gap.

In fact, we built Seelio exactly for this reason– to empower students to easily and beautifully showcase their skills, passions, and experiences. One of the features we offer to our college and university partners is the ability to embed featured showcase galleries on university domains to highlight the great work that their students share publicly.

West Virginia University’s Department of Communication Studies is celebrating student achievements, like Valerie’s, on their department website and helping students see what it looks like to be a WVU Communication Studies major.

Not only does this help the department bring the communication studies major to life, it also encourages students to share their learning experiences in and out of the classroom.

Partner Spotlight: Differentiating Programs Through Brand Ambassadors

DOCUMENTING DIFFERENTIATORS WITH BRAND AMBASSADORS

Each of our partners has a story they want to tell about their programs. Whether it’s the impact of experiential learning, the flexibility of online courses, or a commitment to career preparedness, institutions are recognizing that current students can be the perfect brand ambassadors to give a real perspective of what learning looks like in their college or university.

“Eduventures data indicates that for the first time, current students are on par with parents as influencers of prospective students’ enrollment decisions. Inviting members of your community—from students and faculty to alumni—to participate by spreading simple ideas in their own words can foster community-wide engagement and generate authentic content for both recruitment and fundraising purposes.”

PORTFOLIOS AS EVIDENCE FOR YOUR PROGRAMS

Larry Burns, Vice President of External Affairs at the University of Toledo, consistently looks for innovative ways to showcase the power of a UT degree. In this brief video, he shares how implementing Seelio in two colleges at the university enabled students to serve as brand ambassadors, documenting evidence of the skills they were building and how their UT degree sets them apart. Hear more of his perspective in this short video:
