"We all talk about improving our college's retention and transition programs for students and parents. We know it's importants, but with all our other daily responsibilities, it keeps getting put on the back burner. Finally, someone has put it all together for us! DORMtours is the perfect college retention and transition tool. They do all the work. All we have to do is sign up!"

Imagine if all your accepted freshmen could reach out and touch your University -- virtually, of course -- 24-hours-a-day on the Web. Imagine if someone else would do all the work for you to produce a custom CD-ROM with virtual tours of your freshmen residence halls and all kinds of other cool and innovative tools to ease freshmen's transition to campus life. What if they actually even provided you with enough of these amazing e-cards to send to all your accepted freshmen with your traditional acceptance materials! Now, imagine if that powerful retention tool was available to you, right now, with someone else paying for the professional photography sessions, travel, production and administration! Are you ready for DORMtours?

DORMtours can help you recruit and retain your accepted freshmen by providing information, advice and virtual tours of your freshmen dorms in a user-friendly format. For the students, DORMtours is cool, funky and fun. For your school, it will complete your existing "recruitment funnel" that normally includes campus visits, special events and telemarketing.

The truth is that DORMtours can help you ease parental anxiety and create an abundance of goodwill. Already, dozens of universities have realized the benefits of DORMtours. Shouldn’t your school be among them?
