CASE District III Awards: Grand Award for Recruitment Website or Microsite & Award of Excellence for Innovation/Experimentation (2017)
The #AskaWildcat project was part of a spring yield project at Davidson College during March-April 2016. Newly admitted students had an opportunity to ask current students a variety of questions about student life at Davidson. The answers from current students were included in short videos and write-ups with additional links to websites featuring content relevant to admitted students' questions. Videos for the project were shot with iPhones. The project was promoted heavily on social media, with questions solicited directly through Twitter, SnapChat, and email. Completed videos were shared directly with students on social media.
CASE District III Award of Excellence (2015)
The 30 in 30 project was a Davidson College recruitment campaign targeting admitted students in April 2014. It features Skype video interviews 1-2 minutes in length, and short, easy to scan, written stories about each alumnus/a profiled. All alumni chosen for the project graduated in the last 10 years. We chose to highlight the career and post-graduate experiences of young alumni since their experience are most relevant to admitted students and their parents. The project and website received an Award of Excellence from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District III Award in the Recruitment Website or Microsite category.
