What is Connections?
The purpose of Explore broadly and Connections specifically is to build a community of people around the world that are interested in engaging with your university.
Students and parents around the world are looking for universities that are the right fit for them. Counselors are trying to understand what your university offers and what kinds of students will be a good fit.
Connections is a list of people in your community broken down into three lists: Students, Guardians & Counselors.
How do I get Connections?
When students, guardians and counselors choose to engage with your university on Cialfo we will record their name and some basic details into your connections list.
Our first type of engagement is participation in Cialfo Events. For example: when you host a session in one of our online fairs, people that register for the session are choosing to engage with your university will appear in your connections list.
We have started with events and will be developing more kinds of engagement over time.
Participate in Cialfo Events to build Connections
