College Search Revolutionized

Boynton Beach, FL - July 13th, 2010 - The search for the perfect college has remained relatively unchanged for decades... until now.

"YOUniversityTV has completely changed the college search and selection process by becoming the only website to provide hundreds of professional college video tours; college-bound students aren't looking anywhere else. In fact, many school videos are viewed more on YOUniversityTV than on YouTube and profiles more than on Facebook." said Ron Reis, CEO & Co-Founder of YOUniversityTV.

YOUniversityTV is the leading college video tour website providing prospective college students and their parents with all of the essential tools to discover and learn about hundreds of the top colleges and universities across the nation.

The best part yet is that YOUniversityTV is a free resource for students and their parents, providing equal access to all.

"YOUniversityTV has built a unique business model to keep the site free for students and their parents and still be able to maintain a viable business", said by Angelo Kotzamanis, CMO & Co-Founder of YOUniversityTV.

Due to the current economic conditions many families had to forego traditional summer vacation destinations and are trekking to college campuses instead. The average family visits ten different schools before making a decision on where to attend. YOUniversityTV enables families to view colleges and universities just as if they were standing on campus, all while sitting at home on their computer. This website saves families thousands of dollars today better spent on tuition. By eliminating unnecessary and costly travel, the website is environmentally friendly, reducing the carbon footprint.

Every school featured on YOUniversityTV has a unique profile page where students can watch the school's college video tour, student and school uploaded videos, learn about different areas of study offered, request additional information, stay updated through recent news on campus and much more. The combined assets supplied by YOUniversityTV give students a wealth of information at their fingertips.

YOUniversityTV has taken the information people crave and converted it into the format they desire; simplifying the process for viewers to learn critical facts and gain fundamental knowledge through its youthful and energetic college video tours. The college video tours capture the true essence of what life is like to be a student on campus through the eyes of actual students and faculty. YOUniversityTV created proprietary tools that enhance the viewer experience , allowing them to engage, display, and share their opinions, thoughts, and get helpful information from the online community. Through exposure, YOUniversityTV will increase college enrollment and, because a more appropriate match is made, more students will complete college. By assisting in arming America's youth with higher education, YOUniversityTV promises to contribute to our nation's strength and future economy.

YOUniversityTV Comes to Fisher

Tags: st. john fisher

You know what they say, “seeing is believing”, and seeing everything Fisher has to offer through a virtual setting will be the newest way you can see Fisher and all the opportunities it has to offer. YOUniversityTV, a number one stop during the college process, is an online TV network that works with hundreds of colleges across the country by creating a virtual peek into the college experience. Fisher had the wonderful opportunity of hosting YOUniversityTV yesterday as they filmed video segments of our campus that will result in a video airing on their website this September!

I was fortunate enough to be a part of the filming process as one of the student interviewees about campus life at Fisher! Shanna, a producer for the TV network, became Fisher’s host and we spent the day with the Office of Admissions traveling all around campus taking shots and filming different segments. Visiting campus in person is great, but the new video will be a great sneak peek of what we have to offer here at the College.

I was given a unique opportunity where I received a Small Wonder Pocket video recorder. With the video recorder I’ll be able to shoot short video segments about life in Rochester and the different hot spots on campus. The videos will be used on the YOUniversityTV website as well! Be sure to check back this September when the video is complete and uploaded to our site, and don’t forget to check out their website! It’s a great research tool when looking and applying for college, and one of the newest ways to get another look at Fisher and all its happenings.

Web site of the week: YOUniversityTV

The best way to determine if a college is right for you is to visit and get a feel for the campus and surrounding community. Due to financial and time constraints, however, that's not always possible.

With YOUniversityTV (http://youniversitytv.com/youlife/index.home.php), you can access video tours of hundreds of colleges and universities across the United States from the comfort of your home computer.

YOUniversity TV's professionally produced videos aim to provide an overview of collegiate life. In addition to the basics --- such as location, tuition and student enrollment --- the videos cover some of the unique qualities of the universities, including campus traditions and special academic programs. The tours also include interviews with both students and faculty, who share what they like about their school.

There are a host of other tools that make YOUniversityTV a valuable resource for university-bound students. The Web site has partnered with college-matching service Cappex to offer reports analyzing your chances of getting accepted to a particular school. You can also view student and school submitted videos to get another perspective of a college's offerings.

YOUniversityTV also features videos that examine different careers. For example, if you're thinking about entering the interior design field, you can watch the site's video that follows a day in the life of an interior designer. These career videos explain the skills and training needed for the occupation as well as highlighting some of the professional challenges of the job.

While nothing can replace an in-person campus visit, YOUniversityTV's virtual tours offer the next best thing.

Web site helps students, colleges fight rising costs

HONOLULU (HAWAIINEWSNOW) - With this down economy and the cost of college sky-rocketing, many parents cannot afford that hefty price tag of a campus visit.

That's especially true here in Hawaii for students in the Mainland.

Help for some students and Hawaii colleges is coming from the Internet. The Web site Youniversity.com features both Hawaii Pacific University and Chaminade.

It's free to both of these colleges and it gives students an inside look at what these educational institutions have to offer.

Celeste Indvik is a freshman at HPU. She's on her way to becoming a nurse. But before she even began pursuing that dream, she looked at schools that would help her get there.

She was one of the lucky ones to actually go on a campus visit.

"I was at HPU, I walked around, that's when I knew for sure that I wanted to come here," Indvik said.

For Damien Lazzari, it wasn't an option.

"No I wasn't able to visit any campuses, it was too expensive for plane tickets and traveling," he said.

Enter Youniversity.tv. It gives students like Lazzari a virtual campus visit.

"I think that's definitely an advantage, having the Internet," Lazzari said. "You can just go on the Web site and get pictures of where you're gonna be at, it's too expensive to travel around."

Before she set foot on HPU's campus, Indvik took a look at this Web site.

"I watched the video on it and I thought, I knew I had to go visit, I just wanted to see how beautiful it was for myself," Indvik said.

HPU officials do not know how many students have used the Web site or if it's made a big impact on enrollment here, but they think it helps, even if it's just a little.

"We actually direct students to it from our own Web site, it's a third party, so in this day of social media, students tend to believe things from other people than directly from the source," HPU vice-president of enrollment management Scott Stensrud said.

Stensrud does know one thing for sure. Students are using the Web site at one particular stage in their selection process.

"I think students are using it more on the early stages to get a feel for campus, when you look at the cost of a college education, they're gonna still go visit the campus," he said.

But Stensrud warns these types of sites shouldn't take the place of an actual campus visit.

"It is important for students and parents to know what they're getting when they're looking at the different college search sites and make sure that it's one that's neutral," he said.

Marketing On Higher Ground

With teens now spending more than 31 hours a week online, it's clear where marketers need to be to tap into this demographic. Last year, 93% of teens were hanging out online, but not just "hanging out"; they are actively participating, collaborating and sharing with each other.
Approximately 70% of them are avid social networkers. In fact, it is estimated that by 2011, 84% of teens will use some form of social network. Today's teens are attracted to, compelled by and influenced by these sites, and the WWW is what they are turning to for everyday information.

With the teen demographic huddled so densely online and with this space becoming highly saturated by advertising, marketers need to be savvy and swift in how they reach teens and convert them into advocates of their brands/products. Yet, consumer marketers aren't the only ones giving this some thought. Higher education is also tuning in to teens' online activity.

A report recently conducted in cooperation with the National Association for College Admission Counseling shows that the use of social media in college admissions offices across the U.S. is on the rise. Universities are using social networking tools to attract, recruit and research prospective students. Social media is virtually transforming the college search. Sites offering virtual campus tours and admissions information are helping teens explore and compare schools and narrow down their options before applying.

This new niche provides an untapped opportunity for marketers, who should look for ways to reach the college-bound demographic -- a group that is brand-conscious, educated, motivated and serious about where and how they spend their cash.

As sophisticated online citizens -- 54% read blogs; 33% share files through peer-to-peer; 40-50% tag content; 25% have downloaded podcasts -- this group of teens is looking for digitally compelling content. They need and want to be reached in a way that is real and relevant, through content that is aesthetically pleasing and interactive, providing the kind of social networking component teens are used to, fond of and in which they trust.

Marketers of brands/products hoping to reach the college-bound demographic need to penetrate the online college-search space. In doing so, they need to go beyond the traditional banner ad and find ways to bring life to their advertisements and promotions in a way that has never been done before. Teens want what they do online -- check out schools, apply for scholarships, purchase textbooks, buy dorm room items -- to translate into the real world. Assisting in the college search and promoting higher education is undoubtedly the new wave that needs to be ridden in teen marketing.

As higher education and social media become more tightly linked, marketers can help distinguish their brands, products or services by aligning them to a relevant teen cause -- the college search. What better way to position a brand than in front of an intelligent and inquisitive demographic that is actively looking for useful and relatable information online? By finding their niche in this growing space, marketers can establish relationships with a key demographic that will surely keep its brand loyalty beyond the college search.

Economy has role in colleges' enrollment spike

Schools employing new, Internet-based promotion


More than 1,700 more students have enrolled in area colleges and universities compared to this time last year.


The reason? The economy.

Enrollment at LSU-Shreveport this fall is 4,667. In fall 2008, it was 4,291. Mickey Diez, dean of enrollment services, said the large numbers come from an increase in transfer students, graduate students and those in dual enrollment. The college also saw an increase in the number of veterans going to class. Enrollment increased by 16 percent in that area.

Diez said it was a combination of efforts that helped increase enrollment.

"We did a number of things," he said. "We enhanced communication, enhanced visits to the campus, customer service and the faculty helped recruit."

Also using Web sites such as www.YOUniversityTV.com has helped spread the word out about the school. Although more traditional recruiting avenues like mail outs were still used, communicating through Web sites and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter also has helped attract college hopefuls.

"It's allowed people to discover us at their leisure," he said.

But the sluggish economy also has helped area colleges and universities increase enrollment. Although Diez hasn't been able to track how many students attend classes because of a job loss or to gain additional job skills, he thinks the enrollment growth spurt has the recession to thank.

"I definitely think that the economy did play a part," he said. "Some students have told us they were competing with people who were 20 years older. For a recent grad that can be daunting."

At Bossier Parish Community College, enrollment grew from 4,665 in fall 2008 to 5,430 this fall. The more than 16 percent growth is because of the economy, Chancellor Jim Henderson said.

"I think students are beginning to think BPCC can be part of their lives especially with the uncertainty of the economy," he said.

The increases have come in health care programs and cyber information technology, he said. The college also has seen a 24 percent increase in the number of returning students.

The college hasn't seen much growing pain yet, but Henderson sees it coming.

"It's a little harder to park between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.," he said. "As we continue to grow, we have to be smarter with our resources."

At Southern University-Shreveport, enrollment has jumped to an all-time high — from 2,429 in fall 2008 to 3,014 this fall. Calls to SUSLA were not returned.

At Louisiana Technical College-Shreveport-Bossier, enrollment has grown by 21 percent, Dean Angie Rymer said.

"It's the economy," she said about the reason the campus enrollment grew. "I want to say 21 percent more people want to come to LTC, but it's the economy."

Rymer said some departments that had lower enrollments are now full. Those departments that were full already are now busting at the seams.

"Nursing is always like that (full), but some people had to be turned away," she said. "We try to take as many as we can, but if we have too many people in the lab, it's a safety issue."

Forget high tuition bills; just deciding on a college can empty out a parent's wallet

Before worrying about college tuition, there's the small matter of getting your child into a school.

It's a process that can sap you of thousands of dollars, especially if you're booking hotel rooms and plane tickets to visit faraway campuses. Application fees alone can be $60 or more a pop.


"It's costing a fortune. I'm afraid to even keep track," said Elaine Dickinson, a resident of suburban Albany, N.Y., who visited several schools in the Northeast this summer with her 17-year-old daughter, Kate.

Like other parents, however, Dickinson considers the costs necessary to securing the best future for her child. With so much at stake, she admits it's easier to surrender any attempt at budgeting. Yet at a time when anxieties are high, mindful spending can help focus your goals.

As you ramp up the college application process in coming months, here's how you can tackle three major costs.


TEST FEES

The National School Lunch Program provided free or low-cost lunches to more than 30 million children last year. If your child was among them, your family could also be eligible for an SAT fee waiver. School guidance counselors can tell you about additional eligibility guidelines. Standard registration for the SAT costs $45.

Otherwise, knowing the test schedules and deadlines will help you avoid paying extra.

With the SAT, for example, there's a $23 fee for late registration and a $22 fee to change when or where you take the test. That's on top of the standard registration cost. The ACT test has comparable fees.

To stay on top of deadlines, visit collegeboard.com and actstudent.org.

A little planning can also help prevent the need to have scores rushed to a school. The option costs $27 plus $9.50 for each SAT report. It can add up, so don't opt for a rush out of fear.

"That's an area where anxieties may be causing them to spend more money than they need to," said Doris Davis, associate provost for admissions and enrollment at Cornell University.

Davis suggests calling the school to ask if a rush is necessary. For instance, students applying for early admission at Cornell don't need to have SAT scores rushed, even if they take the test a few days after the Nov. 1 application deadline.

Early admission applications are read well into December at Cornell, so it's OK if scores come in a week or two after the deadline.

"But no matter how much we reassure students, we always get rushed scores," Davis said.

Policies will differ from school to school, of course, so call the admissions office to check for guidance.


APPLICATIONS

It typically costs around $60 to apply to a college. So if your child applies to 10 schools, that's $600 off the bat.

To save some time and money, carefully weigh the chances that your child will end up at a particular university.

"The biggest way families can save is to research and be realistic," said Peter Mazareas, vice chairman of the College Savings Foundation, an advocacy group in Washington, D.C.

Often, he said, students apply to schools they wouldn't attend even if accepted or have little chance of getting into.

That said, your child should apply to at least one or two "reach" schools, as well as a couple fallback and safety schools. All told, six or seven schools should cover the bases, Mazareas said.

Once you've tightened the list of schools to target, look into whether you can get application fees waived. You're eligible for up to four requests to waive college application fees if you qualify for the SAT fee waiver.

Colleges may also accept letters from your guidance counselor stating that the fee would pose a hardship.

You might be also bypass the fee if the college is courting your child for academic or athletic reasons. Some schools have a "VIP application" for students they're trying to entice, said Dean Skarlis, a college admissions consultant in Albany, N.Y. But it's likely the school would have to reach out to your child for such privilege.

Of course, you could save a lot of money and heartache by applying for an early decision if your child is set on a particular school. If your child is accepted, you can use the money you're saving on other applications to celebrate.


CAMPUS VISITS

Traveling to check out campuses can get expensive fast. To narrow down the list of schools to visit, start by taking virtual tours.

Sites like YOUniversityTV.com, CampusTours.com and eCampusTours.com offer free guides on hundreds of universities. While they can't replace in-person visits, they might help rule out options your child is on the fence about.

While you're online, be sure to check out the academic and student life pages of official university websites. You might learn something that helps decide whether the school is worth a trip.

"I've had students apply to schools without realizing they don't offer the major they're interested in," said Skarlis, the college admissions consultant.

Of course, you'll want to visit schools in person if there's a good chance your child could end up there. But even then, there are ways to save.

Local alumni groups often sponsor bus trips and overnight stays for prospective students. You can find about such programs by calling or e-mailing the school's admissions office, or asking your child's guidance counselor.

Otherwise, try to make campus visits part of a family trip on a weekend or during winter break. For instance, Dickinson and her daughter set aside time to tour the University of Maryland while visiting family in the area this summer. Even better -- they made it a point to visit other nearby schools, too.

YOUniversity offers video tours of more than 400 U.S. colleges

Video tours of college campuses aren't a new phenomenon; many universities have provided video tours and information about their campuses to prospective students for years. But Boynton Beach, Fla., startup YOUniversity LLC is hoping to draw users to its sites by offering prospective college students an unbiased, third-party source of information about hundreds of schools in an interactive, social environment. "Most of our employees are recent grads, who are best able to share their campus experiences with others getting ready to go to college," said co-founder Ron Reis, who launched the company in January 2008. The 17-person staff has three full-time camera crews that travel around the country, shooting high-definition footage of college campuses and the surrounding area. They've already taped more than 400 top schools throughout the country and have interviewed administrators, faculty, and students about their campus experience. "They've done a really good job, and they seem to have found a niche market that people really need," said Gordon Chavis, associate vice president for undergraduate admissions at the University of Central Florida.
