Better Together

EAB acquires student engagement technology company Wisr

Wisr is an education technology company that specializes in building affinity between prospective students and colleges. The innovative Wisr platform allows schools to create vibrant, virtual communities that meet the needs of today's students and parents. With three distinct but complementary offerings-a virtual welcome center, a yield and melt solution, and an orientation and first-year experience solution-Wisr's engagement platform supports the full enrollment lifecycle.

Just like in-person yield events, the attendance of a prospective student to these digital communities is an equally good indicator of their interest in yielding. See the positive results of virtual yield engagement through an analysis of eighteen universities that ran fully online yield strategies.

"As we tried to curate a set of admitted student experiences in the wake of COVID-19, Wisr's flexible platform provided a personalized engagement community to each admit and we are seeing those connections grow with each passing day."

Jessica Ricker

Director of Admission, Wellesley College

"Our Facebook group for admitted students had been deteriorating with involvement over the last few years. Students just don't have Facebook anymore. Wisr was a good option to incorporate peer-to-peer engagement and filled a need for socializing virtually. From now on, we will always have virtual elements built-in."

Samantha Addington

Assistant Director of Admissions and Tour Guide Coordinator, Albion College

"I had been looking at online orientation solutions, but all the others had been so passive and almost completely excluded orientation leaders. Those could work for other schools, but our biggest selling point is our community and feeling of family. I could see student leaders getting involved and making the platform better with their unique ideas."

Megan Habermann

Associate Director of Student Engagement, Western Oregon University

"Wisr and Wayne State University share a vision to provide onboarding, academic, and career support to our students at every major point in their lifecycle. We're excited to have launched Wisr with our recently admitted students, to provide trained current students as peer mentors through orientation and the first-year experience."

Dawn S. Medley

Associate Vice President of Enrollment Management, Wayne State University
