Episode 35: Admissions & Outreach

At Wake Tech, we serve about 64,000 adults annually, with seven campuses, two training centers, multiple community sites and a comprehensive array of online learning options. It takes an organized effort from Wake Tech's Admissions & Outreach team to inform the community about the educational opportunities, resources and campus life available at the college. Through highly developed relationships with local schools, businesses and industry, Recruiting and Outreach staff are the familiar faces at high school visits, career fairs, parent nights, college fairs, business events, meetings and coordinated campus visits and tours.

The journey to take prospective students from being interested in Wake Tech to registered and ready for classes is an ongoing and ever-evolving process. In this episode, Dr. Scott Ralls, president of Wake Tech takes you behind the scenes to learn more about some of the cutting-edge tools we are using to connect with students to ensure we are doing all we can to leverage our top-quality programs and affordability to every person in Wake County.
