As the 2008/2009 freshmen class settles into its new role as college students, UCCS recruiters are on the road recruiting a new group of high school seniors.
This week Jeff Foster, multi-media marketing coordinator, University Relations, and I accompanied Rachel Gibson, a UCCS admissions staff member, on a trip to six Colorado high schools in Monument, Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch and Calhan. The marathon expedition, starting at 7 a.m. and ending at 7 p.m., was both a positive and eye-opening experience.
In the coming weeks, various UCCS administrators will hit the road with recruiters. To prepare them for their individual trips, Jeff and I created our own “Top five things to know about college recruiting” list.
If you too would like to experience a day as a recruiter, please call Chris Beiswanger, director, Student Recruitment, at 262-3088. It is an experience anyone who works in academia should have, is enjoyable, and is an education about the mind-set of an 18-year-old in the 21st century.
