Put yourself in the shoes of an incoming freshman. How do you find out what’s happening on campus? Who’s going to events? What are the popular places? How do you get there? That’s where Localist comes in.
Universities know how difficult it is to engage current students online, and appeal to prospective students when they don’t have the right tools. Schools spend a lot of time and money managing calendars, creating newsletters and posting to Facebook. Localist automates these tasks and more, saving our partners tens of thousands of dollars per year.
We provide a software platform to universities ranging from 2,000 to 30,000 students and are working with dozens of schools including: Cornell, Johns Hopkins University, Notre Dame and Liberty University.
