MENTORSHIP ENGAGES ACCEPTED STUDENTS BEFORE THEY ARRIVE
Our programs pair incoming students with community mentors pre-arrival.
Mentors build excitement about your school's unique value and campus culture.
Mentors provide personalized support to students who are undecided or come from diverse backgrounds (i.e. first-generation students, low income students, etc.).
Our partners have had success decreasing summer melt and increasing enrollment conversion up to 40%.
Students participating in the program at Fairfield University were nearly twice as likely to enroll in the university as those without mentors.
Shearwater helped a flagship university:
Decrease overall melt by 6.9%.
Increase international enrollment conversion by 39.7%.
Decrease melt for participants to < 1%.
