MIT Admissions has been running a successful student and staff admissions blogging program since 2004. We have 16 bloggers who have published over 2000 entries and received 32,000+ comments in response; over 6000 unique users visit our site each day (20,000+ hits daily on average). In this session, we’ll tell you about the evolution of our program, pitfalls to watch out for in creating and managing your own blogging program, and how to get started. We’ll also discuss the current generation of college-bound high school students, how their communications preferences and practices have evolved with the web, and how/why blogging and other Web 2.0 initiatives fit so well into this context.
Who should attend?
Anyone who is thinking of starting an admissions blogging program to complement their existing marketing initiatives. In particular, anyone who feels that telling the stories of their school through primary sources would capture the attention of a greater audience.
Ben Jones is Associate Director of Admissions and Director of Recruitment in the MIT Office of Admissions.
