    Personalize ALL communications. Always use their name, never "Dear Prospective Student";

    Write as though you are speaking to them, ex. "You will achieve"..., never "Millersville University students achieve"...;

    Students prefer visuals and infographics;

    Short messages and bullet points have a better response rate.
