Shearwater helps universities:

 
Our partnership with Shearwater allows us to welcome new students into the Prescott College community by connecting them with alumni mentors, who could share both their enthusiasm for the school and their practical suggestions for making the transition to college. The result was less summer melt, and an engaged and enthusiastic incoming class.
— Jerri Brown, Dean of Enrollment Management, Prescott College
