120+ Virtual Engagement Strategies for Incoming Students

Currently, it’s more important than ever to cultivate a sense of belonging and connection with incoming students, as colleges and universities face several new threats to their incoming class. To combat the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, institutions must develop new and creative ways to engage students through orientation and across the summer. We have organized over 120 virtual engagement strategies in seven key areas:

  • Build affinity and sense of belonging
  • Drive engagement with academics
  • Engage parents and family members
  • Facilitate virtual campus experiences
  • Foster peer connections
  • Offer service opportunities
  • Provide career exploration opportunities
