Knox 101: Brown Bag Lunch Series, Nov. 17

From President Amott:

Dear Knox Community,

After a terrific turnout for the first Knox 101: Brown Bag Lunch Series last month, we’re pleased to announce the second installment of this new monthly series:

Student Recruitment & Marketing for Today’s Prospective Students

Today’s admission marketplace is more competitive than ever, and colleges must work harder and smarter in order to recruit each year’s entering class. So how does Knox bring in the class? Paul Steenis, vice president for enrollment and dean of admission, will discuss Knox’s efforts to recruit the 21st-century student. He will be joined by Megan Scott, associate vice president and chief communications officer, who will discuss the new Knox website and Admission publications, as well as the College’s new marketing messaging.

Please join us on Monday, November 17 at noon in Ferris Lounge.

The Knox 101: Brown Bag Lunch series is sponsored by the President’s Council and Human Resources. Bring your lunch and join in this discussion to learn more about these important campus initiatives.

We look forward to seeing you on the 17th.
