Wisr Virtual Communities

Create vibrant virtual communities that build student affinity and increase yield.
Wisr is a digital platform that allows colleges and universities to create private, university-branded networks for their prospective and admitted students. Wisr makes it easy for students to get answers to their questions and build community by joining general and niche groups, exploring relevant discussion threads, and connecting directly with their peers, including student ambassadors. Engagement on Wisr is also a top predictor of yield among partners.
